Browsing the library

- In this chapter, we'll look at the many ways in which you can search for and find the content and training you're looking for. Let's begin with a brief overview of the navigation system. And then, in the following movies in this chapter, we'll cover more specific ways to search. Fixed on the top of nearly every page in our site is the Library menu option. Roll your mouse over it to search our entire library by subject. Click on any subject to see all the courses in that subject's category. At the top of each subject page, you'll see a highlights area.

Here in the Business section you can tab through the different highlights being featured in this section. Here we have information on important new software releases, learning guides, which are collections of short videos, articles, and checklists, that are designed to cover key questions you'll need answers to, as you begin learning a new skill, and curated playlists, which are collections of related courses that can help you learn the skills you need to accomplish specific tasks. Clicking on Start learning will take you to that playlist page, where you can view and watch any course you like.

Let's go back to the Business page. Below this highlights area, you'll find the recommendations area, with three tabs: editor's picks are where you can browse through the courses in this topic area that you might find most useful or interesting, most popular courses is where you can scroll through and browse other members' most frequently viewed courses. Now, depending on which subject you've selected, you may see an additional tab here, as well. For example, here on the Business page I also see a tab for documentaries related to this subject.

Underneath the recommendations area, I find the list of 828 courses related to Business. But 828 courses is a lot to browse through and most likely you have a specific type of business course in mind that you're looking for. So, you can always pare down your results using the filter terms on the left. Choosing from Topics, Skill level, Software, and Author. These filters appear in the order of the number of courses in each section.

So, for example, Microsoft has 302. Office has 106, and so on. Also, with the exception of skill level, each filter has a show more option where you can view additional filters. So, for example here under the Topics list, I'll select Home and Small Office. And now, I'm just looking at 100 courses for these search results, which is a much more manageable list of tutorials to browse through, in figuring out which one I want to watch.

Also, notice the recommendations area is now listing the most popular courses in the subcategory of Home and Small Office. And, you can continue to add filters to pare down your list, if necessary. Maybe I only want to see the courses that are related to Microsoft, under Software. So, I'll select that and now I only see 45 courses that have to do with Home and Small Office and Microsoft. If this list was still really long, I could continue filtering, by adding more filter terms on the left.

Notice that each filter term you choose is listed up here, next to selected filters. You can remove filters by clicking the X next to the filter name. Another method for narrowing down the courses you're searching for is by coming back to the Library menu and from here, you'll notice each one of the subjects contains two subdivisions. So you can narrow down your search by course topics or by specific software packages. So, for example, under the subject of Photography you could look for courses covering topics like Cameras and Gear, Color Correction, HDR.

I'm going to go down to Portraits. And now I see a list of 56 courses that have to do with portrait photography. But if you're looking for tutorials on specific software like Photoshop, you can come over to the Photography Software column and choose Photoshop. And in this case, there are 422 Photoshop related courses. Which again, is a lot of courses to sift through. But just like before, you could always narrow down the field by clicking on the filter terms over on the left.

Maybe I want to see the courses that cover Photoshop CC 2015 and maybe I'm only interested in the advanced courses. So there you'll see it, I only have one search result that matches my filtered interest. Now if the software you're looking for isn't listed under the subject Software column and you know the name of the software, you can type it into the search field, up in the main navigation bar. If you prefer to browse through a list of all the softwares we have training on, you can do so by rolling your mouse over the Featured menu in the navigation bar and selecting Software.

This will take you to an alphabetical list of all the software we have training for. You can use the letters in the heading to jump to the letter section of the longer list you want to browse software for. Once you find the course you're interested in, you can select that course's title and it will take you to the course's details page. Where you can view information on this course and you can actually start watching the course itself. So that's how to browse for courses by subject. In the following movies, we'll look at other ways to locate the information and videos that you need.

So, let's return to the home page, which you can always do, by clicking on the logo up in the navigation bar.
