Lynda.com – Online Software Tutorials at its Best

Updated on October 29, 2010

In my job away from writing on Hubpages, I work as an IT Trainer. I love my job and writing software tutorials forms a good percentage of the hubs I have published.

This hub is devoted to an online software tutorial site called Lynda.com that I have been a member of for a while now and continues to be of great benefit to me.

Online Video Tutorials

Lynda.com contains over 900 courses and 55,000 video tutorials online. These include using;

  • Microsoft Office applications such as Excel, Access and Word
  • Adobe software such as Photoshop, Flash and Dreamweaver
  • Programming languages such as Perl, SQL and PHP
  • Search Engine Optimisation tools
  • Game development software
  • And even training on using Twitter, iPhones, Facebook, Flickr and more

This list is constantly growing with more and more subjects and tutorials added frequently. A regular newsletter is emailed to inform subscribers of the latest releases to the online training library.

Membership Types

 Lynda.com offer a variety of membership types. Monthly membership costs less than a dollar a day for access to all online courses, with no long-term commitment. The annual plan saves $50 a year, and the Premium annual subscription includes access to instructors’ files to follow along.

Multi-user memberships are a great option for companies and academic institutions. These are available from a minimum of five memberships and offer a great discount on the subscription price. Companies that use Lynda.com for online training include Amazon, Google and Yale University.

Lynda.com iPhone Application

An iPhone app is now available for free. This provides fast easy access to the Lynda.com online training library whenever you feel the need to learn. I use mine frequently on the train when commuting in the morning and home at night. It makes watching a couple of videos quick and easy and makes learning fun.

Free Software Training

Lynda.com offer a free 24 hour trial to their entire online training library including web design, 3D, photography, business and technical training videos. Try it out and decide for yourself if Lynda is for you.
