Every Friday, I write a post here about a Lynda.com video course that I think will be of interest to InDesign users. I embed a few videos from the course, one of which is free for anyone to view, the rest require a subscription. But this week, I have something very different—and very exciting—to share. Drumroll, please…
From October 24–30, all Lynda.com videos will be free! This incredible event is called the Week of Learning, and to take advantage of it, you just need a LinkedIn account. (LinkedIn purchased Lynda.com in the spring of 2015).
Normally, only LinkedIn Premium members have access to the full LinkedIn Learning/Lynda video library, which you can get to from the LinkedIn homepage by clicking Go to Learning.
Then just search or browse what you want to learn.
The entire Lynda/LinkedIn Learning video library includes over 4000 courses, with over 130,000 videos! You can learn just about anything, from After Effects to Z-Brush. Outside the design and publishing realm, there are tons of courses on business, photography, software development, and more.
Currently, there are 145 courses, and more than 7000 videos on InDesign alone! You could watch InDesign tutorials 24/7 for the entire week and still not see half of them.
How do you decide where to start? Here’s a “Top 5” sampling of courses to explore by Anne-Marie, David, and me.
