DealBITS Drawing: lynda.com's Online Training Library

Send Article to a Friend

Different people learn software best in different ways. Some like playing with a program on their own, others prefer reading something like one of our Take Control ebooks, and many people like attending classes. But there's yet another form of training that's becoming increasingly popular - video training via the Internet. Perhaps the best-known company in this field - at least of those that provide topics of interest to Mac users - is lynda.com, founded by Lynda Weinman in 1995. lynda.com has approximately 250 training programs, many of which cover Macintosh software and were created by the same authors who have written best-selling books and ebooks. So if you're interested in online video training, check out the list of topics in lynda.com's Online Training Library; all the titles have free samples, and you can see if any of them would prove useful in your work.
