As you watch movies at lynda.com, you may find that you really connect with certain authors and their teaching styles. And you may like to sample other courses by the same instructor. All you have to do is go to the Author menu in the Navigation bar, click the first letter of the author's first name. And locate him or her in the list. To the right of each name you'll see the number of courses that author has recorded for us. Clicking the name takes you to that author's landing page. Where you can read a brief biography, and browse the list of this author's courses. The list can be sorted by the course's release dates, which is the default sorting scheme, or alphabetically by title.
To see a complete list of all our authors, go back to the author menu, and click all authors. And on this page, you can scroll through to browse through our author list in alphabetical order by their first names. Again, clicking a name will take you directly to that authors landing page.
