Online Training for Faculty and Staff

Western Michigan University makes online computer training available free for currently employed* faculty and staff through lynda.com.  Lynda.com offers over 1,270 courses in more than 150 topics and is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week so faculty and staff can learn at their own pace whenever schedules permit.  Access is limited to 100 active users during a four month period on a first-come, first-served basis until all seats are filled. At the end of June, October and February, all active accounts will be archived with registration beginning anew in July, November and March for each four month period. 

Note: Due to the limited number of licenses, only work-related training access should be requested.

* This service is not available to emeriti or retirees.
