Features for Faculty to use

Faculty can create assignments within Lynda and then send these assignments to a class list. To do this, faculty need to contact TLT@winona.edu to request a Group get assigned to use in Lynda. Once the group is assigned, faculty can add users to the group, create assignments and run reports on usage.
