Creating a new lynda account
About this article
This article includes instructions for creating or requesting a new lynda account. It is intended for the entire campus community.
Before you begin
The steps for creating a new lynda account vary depending on where you are located. If you are located on the Winona campus and logged into the WSU network, you can create a new account directly. If you are located off campus and are not connected to the Winona campus network, you cannot create a new lynda account directly. Instead, you have to request that an account be started for you.
Creating a new account from the Winona campus
If you are currently located on the Winona campus and logged into the WSU network, follow these steps:
Note: You will use your full friendly WSU email address as your Lynda username.
- Student examples: firstname.lastname@example.org (email@example.com) or firstname.lastname@example.org (email@example.com). (do not use your minnstate login address)
- Employee examples: firstname.lastname@example.org (do not use your minnstate login address)
