Lynda.com (eLearning tool)

Lynda.com is UMD’s free e-learning tool. Online courses are available to all faculty, staff, and students. Visit Lyndatraining.umd.edu and use your UMD directory ID and password to login and access courses on topics such as Microsoft Office, Adobe Creative Suite, Communication skills, and almost anything else you could want to learn.

Custom Training

Ultimately, the most effective learning takes place when an entire department goes through the program together. If your department wants to build trust, strengthen relationships, reduce conflict, set & achieve goals, and create a healthy, positive, inclusive work environment then a custom program is for you.  Availability for this service will vary depending on our training schedule requirements. Contact LTD to schedule.
