What’s the easiest way to learn new software (or even old software that you only ‘sort of’ know)? Perhaps it depends on the person, but for most people Lynda.com would be an amazing resource. Problem is that many people don’t know about Lynda.com, or have the wrong idea of what online learning is like when it’s done well.
Here’s why Lynda.com merits your very close attention:
- It’s free to try for 7 days, so you should at least check it out so you know what they offer.
- They offer hundreds of video courses, on pretty much every commonly used piece of software.
- Their courses on Adobe Acrobat are outstanding, and alone justify investment by attorneys.
- The courses are broken down into short segments of two to five minutes, and the outline contains links to each sub-part so you can easily zero in on just the parts that you really need to learn.
Amazingly, it’s the tech-savvy people who seem to use Lynda.com most. The people who need it most don’t seem to know about it, or, if they do, then they don’t think that it can help them.
