    Artsy best decribes Alex Olson’s works as "abstract, but that’s not how she would choose to refer to them: “In fact, the way I approach painting is almost the opposite in that nothing is an abstraction of something else,” she says. “It literally is what it is.” Olson’s paintings aim to be exact records of how they were made, self-evident in their construction.

  • Marisa Matarazzo is an Assistant Professor in the Graduate Writing program at Otis. She is the author of Drenched: Stories of Love and Other Deliriums, which Aimee Bender called "a collection that marks its own territory and stamps it out with a textured beauty." Her work has appeared in Faultline, Hobart, Fivechapters, Unstuck, and other literary journals, and she has taught at UCLA Extension, the Art Institute of California, Los Angeles, and UC Irvine.

  • Gracie DeVito’s work challenges codified modes of art making and production; the output of the work shifts fluidly from painting, to sculpture, to found objects, to performance. Characters and motifs, manifested by DeVito herself or by the characters she creates, rotate through the 2D and 3D spaces of her pieces.

Getting Started

New login method launching in August 2015! Details below.

New Users:

  1. Go to the new lyndaCampus at Otis log-in page.
  2. Enter your Otis credentials, just like logging into Webmail or O-Space.
  3. Click the button "No, I've never had an account."
  4. Please update your profile.

And you are ready to go.

But I created a lyndaCampus at Otis account last year!

Upon first log in you will have the opportunity to transfer your history from your previous account (please note this is only available upon your first log in).

  1. Go to the new lyndaCampus at Otis log-in page.
  2. Enter your Otis credentials, just like logging into Webmail or O-Space.
  3. Click the button "I've had an account."
  4. Enter your old lynda.com username and password. The username was your full Otis email address. There is a forgot password utility if you cannot remember it.
  5. Click on the button “Transfer my account.”
  6. Please update your profile.

And you are ready to go.

I already have a personal lynda.com account.

If you already have a personal lynda.com account associated with your Otis email address, you may be eligible for a partial refund. Contact lynda.com‘s Customer Service for details.

If you have a lynda.com account associated with a non-Otis email address, you can contact lynda.com‘s Customer Service to have your account history transferred to your Otis lyndaCampus account, if desired.

What if I went directly to lynda.com? How do I log in?

Additionally, you may go directly to lynda.com and select log in from the top right corner. You will be asked to enter your organization's domain, www.otis.edu, and will be directed to enter in your Otis login credentials.
This is also the process if you are using the Lynda.com mobile app.

Why the Change?

The new log in process uses your existing Otis credentials; there is no need to create and manage yet another username and password. The account will be activated immediately without needing to verify your Otis email address.
