Online Training Available Anytime for Exchange Users
Unfamiliar with Outlook? Not sure how to complete a task? ITS provides UVa faculty and staff access to free, brief online training videos, viewable anytime, to help you learn!
lynda.com (Lynda Online Learning)
The University Library provides current UVa faculty, staff, and students access to free, brief online training videos that are segmented into just the topics you want to see.
If you've used Lynda Online Learning before, whether a personal subscription, trial, or via the earlier email registration method, you're prompted to migrate your profile to this new system when you first log in, so you'll be able to keep your entire course history if desired.
Need help? If you have questions, please use Ask a Librarian for current and up-to-date information.
