Through our single sign-on system, the Swarthmore community now has access more than 5,000 courses via lynda.com on a variety of subjects. Most videos are short -- just a couple minutes apiece, which make them great to use in a pinch, or strung together for a deeper learning experience. Bookmarks help you keep track of helpful videos or ones you'd like to see in the future.
