"Lynda.com has saved me so many times! I got a job in technology and found out that I knew very little about the programs I’d be working with. I frantically searched for help on other sites, finding nothing until I turned to lynda.com. They have every tutorial I could possibly ask for on my programs and more. The videos were so easy to follow and radically accelerated the speed at which I was able to learn. In the past six months, lynda.com has taught me how to use Blackboard, Adobe Captivate (versions 6 and 7), Photoshop CS6, and Excel. I would have been lost without it, and I find myself eager to keep learning more.”
-Lauren Mitchell, graduate student
“Among the many resources CU provides to students, one of them is the access to online educational videos and training materials from lynda.com. As a student in Health Information Technology, I find the lynda.com videos helpful, well crafted, and well organized. The first time I used lynda.com was when I was taking a database management class. It was very helpful to me to go deep into the different parts of the data architecture, organization, and also the basic concepts of relational database. Videos by Simon Allardice and Gerry O’Brian are as entertaining as they are informative. How marvelous to have all those materials together on one site!”
