The Fresno State Technology Services contract with LinkedIn Learning (LIL), which includes videos and tutorials offered through Lynda.com, expired on August 10th. This decision will affect the curriculum planning of faculty who use these tutorials in their classes. This decision was made with fiscal responsibility in mind.
Fresno County Public Library provides free access to this resource. Users will only need a FCPL library card, for which they can register online and then have immediate access. More information is available here. You can also contact Madden librarians at firstname.lastname@example.org or FCPL librarians at 559-600-READ (7323) for any questions.
The Henry Madden Library website also has a page detailing the use of other libraries in our area to borrow or search items for research and curricular use. We will continue to update our pages regarding access to these resources as new comes forward.
Updates from Technology Services:
AUGUST 25. The Fresno County Public Library (FCPL) offers access to Lynda.com for individuals with a current library card. You can obtain a library card for access to digital resources at the Fresno County Library website. If you experience difficulty accessing Lynda.com after registering online with FCPL, please contact them by phone at 600-READ (7323).
Faculty, please be advised that access to Lynda.com via the Fresno County Library does not coordinate with Canvas, Fresno State’s Learning Management System. You will want to consider alternative methods of coordinating learning materials for your courses if you implement teaching tools via Lynda.com. Please contact the Center for Faculty Excellence for additional information and resources.
Will our students have access to LinkedIn Learning through the Fresno County Public Library?
Students with a current FCPL card will have access to LinkedIn Learning in the same way that faculty do. Students without a Fresno County address will be unable to access Lynda.com through FCPL. While their local public library may provide access, this is not guaranteed. We are currently exploring options to provide access for these students.
AUGUST 4. Our teams are investigating alternative methods to access LinkedIn Learning and will inform the campus community at a future date.
Fresno State continues to offer a variety of resources that support a productive learning environment, professional development and opportunities for learning and growth.
- CSU Learn allows faculty and staff access to required compliance training, professional development workshops and online courses, books and videos.
- Center for Faculty Excellence (CFE)
- Tools for Teaching (CFE)
- Organizational Excellence
- Online toolkits and other resources (Organizational Excellence)
- Knowledge Base (Technology Services)
- Henry Madden Library
- The Henry Madden Library also maintains a web page that includes additional information for Fresno State affiliates.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
