My name is Bonnie Bills, and I’m Associate Program Director for lynda.com’s business channel. We’re on a mission to offer more courses that will help our members succeed in business, whether your business is a one-person operation or a large enterprise, whatever your field, your title, your skill level, or your operating system.
I’d like to share a bit about our plans here, and I invite you to share your ideas in the comments:
In developing our business courses, we have been talking to our members, authors, and industry leaders about how we can best meet the learning needs of today’s busy business users. The result of this discussion is that we’re creating courses that provide deep but focused instruction that targets specific needs, from mastering a critical feature in an application (think Pivot Tables in Excel), to not missing a beat through software transitions (see our Migrating courses from David Rivers and Curt Frye), to getting tasks done quickly and easily (for example, creating invoices in Excel and creating envelopes in which to mail them in Word).
Expect more of these kinds of courses over the coming year. We want to know what you need to succeed, so if there’s a business tool—or a specific feature, task, or skill—you want to master, please tell us about it!
With online video courses at lynda.com, you can reach your goals faster. Learn software, improve your skills, and get an inside look at how the professionals work.
