Online learning with a little help from Lynda

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, July 24, 2013

Online learning with a little help from Lynda.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   It started with a book on Web design and has been growing ever since.   Lynda.com has been a go to destination for learning about software and more for millions.   Lynda Weinman, who co-founded the site with her husband Bruce Heavin, says what has really set Lynda.com apart, is its simple subscription approach…

“Well it starts at 25 dollars a month and it’s an all you can learn model where we have over a hundred thousand videos on hundreds of topics.   And you can really learn not only at your own speed,  but at your own pace as well.”

Lynda.com has partnered with a growing number of colleges and universities.   What’s next?  Expansion into other countries and languages…

“We just purchased a company and so we are now integrating French, German and Spanish materials into our English speaking materials and translating the Web site and working on a lot behind the scenes.”

You can literally learn more at Lynda.com.  You can find us at BootCamp.com.  I’m Fred Fishkin.
