Lynda Is Teaching Me A Few New Tricks
The Lynda I’m referring to, of course, is Lynda.com. This site is a gold mine of software tutorials all set to Quicktime Movies in bite size chunks. A client of mine recently pointed this site out and I must say, I can’t believe I never stumbled upon it previously.
Here how it works. You pay a monthly fee and can consume all the training you can eat on specific software applications like Word and Excel or on things like web graphics, CSS and HTML. There seems to be something for just about everyone, from the beginner to programmer. The courses are broken up into short lessons and you can also buy a complete 3 or 4 hour course on CD.
I think everyone on the planet should know how to create a web site. So, if you don’t think you want to learn how, do this. Buy your kid a subscription and make them go through the courses on web design, CSS, HTML, XML and Cold Fusion – It may be far more useful than that college tuition you’re paying for!
