Get more from Lyons with Lynda!

Unsure how to use multimedia software or programs? Lyons New Media Centre to the rescue!

Now that the winter term is underway and some projects have been introduced, we thought this would be a great time to remind McMaster students about the awesome program Lyons New Media Centre has to offer. Of the 12 Mac computers we have in the Centre, two computers are specially equipped with subscriptions to lynda.com.

Lynda.com is an online library of tutorials for an array of computer programs. These high quality videos range from beginner lessons (for students who have never used the program before) to more advanced lessons.

To name a few, Lynda has tutorials for: Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Flash, Final Cut Pro, Premiere, iMovie, and even Microsoft Office! Not only software skills are covered, but lynda.com also tailors to other fields. There are also tutorials for enhancing business and creative skills with tutorials on blogging, social networking, and achieving your goals.

As a Multimedia Communications student myself, I find lynda.com is a great platform for learning new programs and also for refreshing your memory on programs you might already be familiar with. We hope that you will take advantage of this resourceful teaching tool! To book a station, visit Lyons New Media Centre Room Booking System and ask the Help Desk for any further assistance!
