The MDX Pavilion is now finished and open for use! Led by architectural technology students alongside industry experts, the project aimed to create a sustainable learning, events and wellbeing space on campus.
The #TeamMDX community are welcome to make full use of the Pavilion for both learning and university social purposes. Examples of how you might like to use the Pavilion include as a space for events, speed meets, exhibitions, student societies and outdoor films; a learning space close to nature. It could even be a venue for yoga and tai-chi classes; or simply a quiet place for contemplation. So get your thinking caps on !

Lynda.com moving to LinkedIn Learning
For all students using Lynda.com your account will have been upgraded on 20th June 2019 – meaning you can no longer access Lynda.com. But don’t worry, all your learning activity and history will have seamlessly transferred to LinkedIn Learning.
Please note that LinkedIn Learning is separate from the LinkedIn professional networking platform. When you activate your account, you will be provided with the option of ‘connecting’ your LinkedIn profile (if you have one already) to your Learning profile.
There’s more information on upgrading to LinkedIn Learning and the activation process, options and the benefits of connecting your LinkedIn profile on the new LinkedIn Learning website.
Law, Criminology and cyber-security students will be interested to know that over summer we have switched to the new and updated version of the legal database Westlaw.

It is now possible to mark items as favourites for easier and faster access, highlight important text and annotate material. These changes will allow you to more quickly find the precise information you need.
