Access to University of Saskatchewan's online learning library, Lynda.com:
All U of S faculty, staff and students have free and unlimited access to lynda.com, an online training resource containing thousands of videos on the latest software tools and skills. The online training courses are available for people at all levels of experience. You may create your own playlist, keep track of your progress and receive recognition with a certificate at the end of the course.
