In OIT, Kathy Olson would be the contact. She is the service owner that includes training. At one time there was an initiative being worked for licensing Lynda.com for Big Ten schools but it didn't work out.
I'm copying Kathy on this response ([log in to unmask]).

I have heard that they do support Shibboleth. But any contacts I have would be at the technical level, not the sales level.

If we wanted to get an "enterprise" version of Lynda.com on campus who
