Do You Know Lynda?

Open laptop computer was the brainchild of Lynda Weinman who is known by some as the “mother of the Internet.” Lynda started teaching web design in 1993 and in 1995 launched a website where students could go for free resources on technology. This site which has grown and morphed in the intervening years was sold in 2015 for 1.5 billion dollars. It remains a go-to resource for learning about technology and you have access to this tool at RWU Law.

Using the tutorials available on, you can learn so much about so much! For example, there are tutorials on topics as wide-ranging as the evolution of typeface design to Jazz Piano lessons! 

For law students, we recommend the following lessons:

  • Essential Training for Excel
  • Prezi Classic Essential Training
  • Leading with Emotional Intelligence
  • Time Management Fundamentals
  • Learning Skype

To access these lessons, go to and enter the name of the lesson.

If you have any questions on how to use, I am sure there is a video on that! If not, please stop by the library or email us at
