Lynda Share OptionsFollow these steps to link to a whole course or a section of the Lynda.com video tutorials.

Log in to Lynda.com with your NetID and password and find the video you want to use

  1. Click the Share button in the upper right hand corner
  2. From the drop down menu, copy either the link to the video (section of a course) or the second link which takes students to the whole course
  3. In BrightSpace/D2, go to the Content Section where you want to add the link and select Update/Create
  4. Choose Create a Link rather than Video since you cannot embed Lynda videos
  5. Give an appropriate title for the video
  6. Paste the link copied in step 2 in the URL box
  7. Check Open as External Resource to save students one step
  8. Then Create to save the link to your content area

The students will need to log in to Lynda with their NetID/password when they click the link, but this should take them directly to the video you selected.
