FREE TRAINING

It’s been a couple of years since we last visited Lynda.com, and a whole lot has happened. Lynda is the queen of Web tutorials, and now you can try out Lynda Online Trainingmore than 1,700 of them for free. They cover instruction for 75 major software titles. Many of the videos also include closed-captioning for the hearing impaired.

We took a look at instructional videos for Adobe Illustrator and one titled “Effective Email,” and both were the best teaching videos we’ve ever seen. The lessons on e-mail covered a lot of bases most people don’t think about when they compose and send off a message.

The first two chapters on any topic are free, and if you want to continue, there is a charge of $25 a month or $250 a year. This provides access to all the videos. For an additional charge you can get exercises to work on offline.
