Lynda Domain URL Tip

Lynda.com is new to VCU. It’s good stuff and I wanted to use it more with students but the vanilla links lead you to the non-VCU authentication page which equals confusion and despair. Luckily, there is a simple solution.

Just append ?org=vcu1 to the end of the URL and it’ll prompt the user for authentication and all the good things will happen.

So this . . .
https://www.lynda.com/WordPress-tutorials/WordPress-Essential-Training/372542-2.html
becomes this . . .
https://www.lynda.com/WordPress-tutorials/WordPress-Essential-Training/372542-2.html?org=vcu

Just a little tip to make life more pleasant.


1 or whatever your org is – I spent some time trying vcu.edu and failing

    I just learned that I have access to Lynda.com through a university where I teach. I am eager to explore it!
