Lynda.com – Software Training Videos

Posted in Did you Know? on February 27, 2012 by

In the moments that you don’t have time to seek out in-person assistance or read through another online tutorial – may we suggest accessing Lynda.com?
The Lynda.com Online Training Library includes training in the latest software tools and creative techniques—with videos on Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Flash, digital photography, web design and development, digital video, 3D, animation, and much more. The library also includes videos offering inspiration and insight from today’s leading creative professionals.
University of Saskatchewan students, faculty and staff may enjoy access to Lynda.com via two training kiosks located in the Murray library (in front of room 134). ITS is currently exploring broader access to Lynda.com or similar services.
Lynda.com also offers FREE viewing of many titles through its YouTube LyndaPodcast channel.
