As Dylan said the times they are a changin. Nowhere is this more true than in the world of technology. By the time a print book is out on a technical topic it may already be out of date, missing a recent upgrade or off trend. This is where the latest electronic offering to Christchurch City Libraries comes in – Lynda.com!
With over 5,800 courses and 260,000 tutorials on software, creative and business skills, users of any skill level can take on bite-size tutorials for immediate problem solving or comprehensive courses on hundreds of topics.
With Lynda.com you can:
- Keep up to date with technology and gain multimedia, design, web development, and social media skills;
- Build career-boosting business know-how by exploring hundreds of topics in management, leadership, and marketing;
- Watch videos that have been constructed by industry experts;
- Create playlists and read a long with closed-captioned transcripts—or search the text to quickly find information within a course.
What does this mean to you? Lynda.com can be used either from home or in libraries to allow everyone to keep ahead of technical and business trends and updates. All you need is a library card number and password/PIN and a desire to learn.
