Lynda.com

lynda.com– a premier online learning site offering more than 4,000 courses covering technical skills, creative techniques, business strategies, and more- is now available free with your library card. As a Aurora Public Library cardholder you can access lynda.com content from any computer or device with an Internet connection simply by entering your 14-digit APL library card barcode and 4-digit PIN.

Please note that you will access course content through our lynda.com login page. Please bookmark accordingly. Alternatively, patrons can get access through the lynda.com website directly by selecting “Sign in through your organization’s portal” at the Sign-In, then typing in aurorapubliclibrary.org. You will reach the APL lynda.com login page that way, too.

Please also note that while the APL’s lynda.com accounts are accessible through mobile devices, they are not accessible through lynda.com apps. Use your mobile device’s browser.

Once you have logged into lynda.com with your library barcode you must create a personalized lynda.com account by entering your name and e-mail address. This account can help you manage your course history, playlists, bookmarks, and Certificates of Completion. Many courses also feature exercise files, so that if you’re watching a tutorial about Microsoft Excel you can engage with the activity with downloadable Excel spreadsheet files.
