End of Support for Lynda.com

End of Support

UNM IT supported an enterprise license for the online training site Lynda.com through Lynda.unm.edu from 2011 to December 20, 2017. Unfortunately, due to increasing licensing costs and ongoing budget reductions, UNM IT was unable to continue funding this service beyond December 2017. In an effort to gain campus input prior to discontinuation, UNM IT negotiated a 6-month extension with Lynda.com in June, 2017. Subsequent consultation with the Student Fee Review Board, the Technologies Advisory Boards, and other campus stakeholders determined that UNM should discontinue the Lynda.com license, given budget realities and competing priorities.

If you or your department identifies a need to purchase individual Lynda.com subscriptions, please contact Software Distribution at swdist@unm.edu to discuss options.

Personal subscriptions to Lynda are available via the Lynda.com website. While it does not directly replace the Lynda subscription, UNM IT and University Libraries are working on some joint initiatives that will identify free and low cost digital training and reference material opportunities for faculty, staff, and students. There are many other free and low-cost resources available locally and on the web, including those on this page.
