Tuesday Tip: Empower Yourself with Lynda Learning

By Tony Coughlin


Are you one of those people who is always looking to improve yourself? Maybe you want to hone your job skills to ensure that big promotion. Maybe you want to learn a new skill to take on a big project at home. Lynda is here to make sure you are equipped to do both! 

Lynda is an online education tool that uses a combination of video, PowerPoint presentations, quizzes, and interactive downloadable files to help educate those who do not have time to attend regular classes. They recruited experts from all kinds of backgrounds that put together these tools to give you the education you are looking for.



I first discovered Lynda when I was looking to dive deeper into IT infrastructure. More specifically, network security. The amount of information I was able to find was astonishing. They have over 2,000 courses on this subject alone. Their courses range from a 30-minute video series to a 21-hour interactive course. Continuing with their technology theme, they have courses on Microsoft Excel, Word, Outlook, O365, SharePoint, Planner, etc. It is the perfect tool if you are looking to brush up on these skills.

Lynda is not limited to technology. They have a plethora of courses for all kinds of things. I have compiled a short list below:

  • Accounting
  • Analytics
  • Branding
  • Business skills
  • Communication
  • Construction
  • Design
  • Home and small office planning
  • Music lessons
  • Time management

All of these subjects have dozens, if not hundreds, of courses attached to them. If you are interested in seeing what Lynda can offer you, I invite you to check out their website: www.lynda.com. For $34.99/month, it’s a steal!
