New features on Lynda.com

By Caroline E Norris, on 15 September 2016

Those who use Lynda.com may have noticed already that there have been some changes to the user interface and some exciting new features have been added.  The next time you log on you will be asked ‘What do you want to accomplish on Lynda.com?’ and guided through a range of options.

Once you have chosen some goals, these will be included in the Recommended section of your personalised profile.  You can go back to My Goals (on the drop-down menu under your name) to change your choices at any time.

Your Lynda.com home page has now been re-organised to make it more streamlined with courses you are currently watching (Continue Watching) and Your Playlist on the left and Popular Learning Paths and other highlighted courses on the right.  The courses section is now tabbed with New, Popular and Recommended sections.

If you aren’t familiar yet with Learning Paths, these are sets of courses written by industry experts designed to teach you the knowledge and skills to pursue a particular career or work towards a particular certification.

Finally, something to look forward to: there will soon be a ‘Popular at UCL‘ tab added so you will be able to see what other users here are enjoying!
