Are faculty allowed to print information about Lynda.com on their syllabi?
Yes. Faculty is encouraged to share the news that Lynda.com is available to all Norco College students. Videos and other materials fromLynda.com may be used in the classroom.
What should faculty do if a student in their class is not registered as a Norco College “home college” student but they need access to Lynda.com as part of their class?
If a student who has not declared Norco College as their “home college” is taking a class at Norco College and needs access to Lynda.com, the student and/or faculty can email firstname.lastname@example.org with verification of the class to request an account for Lynda.com. We will verify with Admissions and Records prior to creating an account for the student. Once approved, the student will receive a “welcome email” from Lynda.com requesting the student complete his/her profile.
Can I use Lynda.com for FLEX Credit?
Yes. You must print out a report on the number of hours spent on training and attach it to your FLEX Credit Request form and submit it to your Department Chair for FLEX Credit approval.
As Classified Staff, can I use Lynda.com for Professional Growth?
The Technology Committee has requested a review of Lynda.com for professional growth to the Professional Growth Committee. Results are pending. However, you may submit the professional growth paperwork to the committee on your own.
As a reminder, in order to qualify for professional growth, all professional development training should be done outside of work hours. It is acceptable to view a short video at work to assist you with work tasks at hand. Hours of professional development in technology training for professional growth must be done outside of work hours.
