As part of our 10 Days of Lasagna Learning: Teaching Multiple Ages at Hodgepodge, I shared a post called Technology for All Ages. A few readers were particularly interested in a resource I mentioned called Lynda.com, so I thought I would share a little more here. Lynda.com is a subscription online training library. For $25.00 monthly, over one thousand courses can be viewed online.
There are classes from beginners to experts. You can pause, rewind, view one tutorial at a time or view an entire course in one area.
Lynda.com training covers a variety of topics, including:
- Home Computing
- Web + Interactive
- 3D + Animation
- Final Cut Pro
Our eldest son is using the Lynda.com library to learn computer programming. The courses are engaging, and the lecturers really know their topics. One of the best things about Lynda.com is that 10% of the training catalog is available free. You can truly “try before you buy”. There is no long-term commitment, you may cancel the subscription at any time.
