Cal Poly has partnered with Lynda.com to bring training videos to faculty and staff. Through this partnership, you will receive unlimited access to a vast library of high quality, current, and engaging video tutorials taught by great teachers who are also working professionals. Click the link at the bottom of these instructions to review the list of Lynda.com tutorials about the iPad. This will take you to a page with a list of iPad courses in Lynda. Some of the video links within the courses will be greyed out because you haven't logged in with your Cal Poly credentials yet. To have access to all the videos within an iPad course, you will need to log into Lynda. Here's how:

  1. Click on the link below labeled iPad Courses at Lynda.com.
  2. Click on the link for the specific course you wish to enter.
  3. Once the page for your selected iPad course loads, locate and click the "Log in" link on the upper right corner of the page.
  4. The first time you log in, a page will appear that says : "Log in through your organization or school." In that form field, type www.calpoly.edu
  5. Click the button that says "go."
  6. You will be taken to the familiar Cal Poly portal login screen - use your normal Cal Poly credentials (username/password) to log in. You will then be able to access all the video links within the Lynda.com iPad courses.
