New lynda.com site feature: Improved Search

Our improved site search feature makes it easier than ever to find the video training you are looking for. Begin by typing a term into the search bar. Press Enter or Return, or click the search button. Our search engine looks through every course name, movie name, description, and transcript to find your search term. By default, search results are sorted by movie name. Narrow down the list of movies by clicking filter terms under the Category, Software, Vendor, and Author headings.

Under each heading, you will see terms listed in order of how many matches there are. Click on view more to see a full list of results, and click on any term to narrow down your results. You can then further refine your results by clicking on another term, or if you are looking for results from a particular year, you can click on an option under Release Year. You can also choose Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, and/or Appropriate for All under Learning Level. Remove any filter by clicking on the X next to it.

You also have the option of only showing results for courses with a DVD version or with Closed Captioning, indicated by the icons next to the movie name. Click any of the column headings to sort the results by that heading, or use the sort by drop-down menu. If you’re currently signed in to your account, clicking a movie name will immediately open and play the movie. Click on the Courses tab to display search results by course name, or click on the Site tab to show results for other lynda.com pages, such as author bios and blog entries. We hope the improved search function enhances your learning experience at lynda.com.

Learn it from the experts.
