In this blog series, we showcase cloud tools we think help our clients run their small businesses better. We don’t have any affiliation with the companies, nor are we concerned about increasing their sales. We just like these tools and think you will too.
Our pick for online tutorials: Lynda
Have you ever wanted to learn advanced Excel? Software development? Motion graphics? Online marketing?
Lynda.com can teach you. The web tool is a training platform offering thousands of online tutorials that help members learn new web development and business skills or build on existing ones. Professionals across the world with expertise in a specific subject matter lead the tutorials. Some are organized into multi-week courses, while others take about about an hour to complete.
Ebooks and exercises help you perfect and practice your skills. Courses come with a table of contents, allowing you to skip sections you don’t need.
Why we like online tutorials
We like Lynda because the digital experience breaks down borders and removes obstacles to learning. If you’d like to learn about video editing from an expert across the globe, you can. Founded in 1995, Lynda.com has developed a solid international reputation as a learning tool, allowing them to offer certification for many of their high-quality courses.
If one of our team members needs to update his or her skills in software development, we can assign them a specific tutorial. Its web-based, so our people can take their courses while they work from home or they’re on a business trip.
A basic monthly membership is $25 and gives you access to all videos, meaning you can try courses you may otherwise not. There are discounts on annual memberships, which come with more perks like downloadable materials and mobile access.
