It’s an amazing service, but it’s not cheap. A subscription can cost an individual as much as $30 a month. But now, you can access Lynda.com for free with your Tuscarawas County Public Library card. Now owned by LinkedIn, Lynda.com is a massive collection of more than 12,000 online video courses led by industry experts and designed for any skill level. If you want to learn how to do something on the computer, Lynda.com can show you how to do it. Lynda.com also provides thousands of courses on business skills including marketing, project management, accounting, business management, and leadership. The volume of courses may seem overwhelming, but all of the content is searchable and organized by subject, skill level, and duration. Some videos are quick; other courses may take a few hours to complete. There are even learning paths that package courses for a specific role or job. Whether you’re looking to jump into a new career or sharpen your skills, Lynda.com can be your guide. You can access Lynda.com at the library or, with an Internet connection, from your home. You just need your library card number and PIN. I encourage you to pick a subject and start learning – the possibilities are endless.
