Lynda.com Learning Paths

Posted & filed under Blog, Technology.

Eight months ago, we announced that Lincolnwood residents could use Lynda.com anywhere, not just within the library. As a result, Lynda.com usage is up 600% over this time last year!

If you have yet to take advantage of your access to this fantastic online learning portal, now is a great time to begin. Lynda.com recently introduced customized Learning Paths, sequences of courses designed to help you achieve your career goals. Among the 50+ Learning Paths are Become a Project Manager, Become a Digital Illustrator, and Become a Programmer. Completion time ranges from 12 to 68 hours.

Other recent additions to Lynda.com include guides to complex subjects like Starting a Business and ongoing weekly series such as Teacher Tech Tips and The Practicing Photographer. Curated playlists are still available in the Playlist Center, while topic overview pages now highlight Editor’s Picks and stand-alone Documentaries. Users receive certificates for every course (and Learning Path) completed; now, you can share your certificates with LinkedIn (Lynda.com’s parent company) and other social networks with a single click:
