Lynda.com User Data Reset

A one time reset will occur on At 3:00pm on Friday, May 23

At 3:00pm on Friday, May 23, your user information on lynda.com will be reset. You will lose access to any playlists that you have created, as well as the record of all materials you have watched. We are doing this to make it easier for instructors to batch enroll students in assigned playlists. This is a one-time-only reset, and will not occur again. Your user data will be archived and can be relinked with your new account. Please contact me directly to begin this process if you would like to retain these records.

If you have not visited lynda.com yet, now would be a great time to try it.  Lynda.com is a vast online library of instructional videos.

There are a number of ways lynda can support students, faculty and staff at UW Oshkosh, including:

  • Keeping you current on technology while tracking your individual training progress. As you learn at your own pace, anytime and anywhere.
  • Inspiring you to be more effective and productive.
