Learn how to find, access, and view courses in the lynda.com training library. Staff author Garrick Chow explains how to find the "need to know" material quickly and browse other subjects you might be interested in. A full rundown of the types of training offered is included, from in-depth essential training on specific software packages, to first looks at up-and-coming technology trends, to inspirational documentaries following creative professionals working in a variety of disciplines. Garrick also shows how to use special library features such as bookmarks, the queue, certificates of completion, frequently asked questions (FAQs), and more, as well as where to turn for help when you need it. Plus, learn to access lynda.com on the go, either through our mobile site, or the iOS app, which also supports playing videos on your TV via AirPlay and an Apple TV.
At lynda.com, we offer four types of subscription levels for individual members. All four types give you complete and unlimited access to our entire library. Our most basic membership is a monthly subscription. For $25 per month, you'll get access to our entire library and no long term commitments. So, if you only want to sign up for a month or two so you can learn a few things, this is the most cost effective plan. If you think you'll be with us for at least a year, we offer an annual subscription for $250, which is like getting two months of access for free.
Now, we also have premium versions of our monthly and annual memberships for $37.50 per month or $375 per year, respectively. In addition to the complete and unlimited access to all of our training courses that you get with the monthly and annual subscriptions, premium membership also gives you the ability to download and use the exercise files from our courses. So you can follow along, performing the exact same actions and tasks as you see our instructors perform. If you're more of a hands on learner but have limited time, consider purchasing a monthly premium subscription. If you're able to commit to an entire year, the annual premium subscription is your best choice for the value, saving you $75 over the cost of the monthly premium service.
And again, whichever membership level you choose, you always have unlimited access to our entire library so you can watch any courses or videos anytime you like.
