Lynda.com Columbia Subscription Enabled on IPhones

lynda.jpgBack in July 2009, we wrote about the Columbia subscription for lynda.com. Many in the Columbia community have taken advantage of their excellent video tutorials. Unfortunately, these were not accessible from the iPhone app using the Columbia subscription till now. The latest version (2.0.1, released September, 2010) now includes support for Columbia's authentication system. Here's how to use it:

  • Start the lynda.com app on the iPhone or iPod touch
  • Select the login button on the start up screen
  • Scroll down to the web portal access button and select it
  • On the "Web Portal Access" page, enter: columbia.edu
  • Enter your UNI and password on the Columbia authentication page
  • Start learning...

IPad users can make use of a custom iPad app, but using the regular lynda.com site via Safari is a better option.
