Downoading and signing in from the Lynda.com apps

We recommend using the Lynda.com apps rather than the website if you're accessing Lynda.com from your mobile or tablet:

Note: the following guidance has been tested on multiple Android and iOS devices and it seems to apply to both equally - if anyone out there has a Windows mobile, we'd like to know if there are any differences! For detailed information about all the various apps see Lynda.com's own Apps FAQs.

To install the Lynda.com app and sign-in:

First and second screen when logging in via app
Screenshot: first and second screen when logging in via app.
  1. Locate and download the app (see links to apps above) and then open the app.
  2. Choose the 'Already a member?' button from the first page that appears (see screenshot above - first screen [it might be a different background photo by now!]).
  3. On the following screen choose the 'Organization' tab (see screenshot above - second screen).
  4. In the 'Web Portal' field enter bristol.ac.uk and choose 'Log in' - this redirects you to the University of Bristol’s Single Sign-On page.
  5. Enter your University username and password as usual and sign in.
  6. If you are prompted to open the page in Lynda.com select 'Open' and you'll be redirected back to the app.

Note: before accessing Lynda.com via the app for the first time, you may be asked to agree to Lynda.com's terms of service. Once you have agreed, you will be taken to your Lynda.com home page.
