New feature: Share information on every Online Training Library® course

SHARE button on each course listing

We've added a new feature: Each course now has the option to easily email, print, and share about it on multiple social networks or blog services with minimal clicks. Try it!

Even if you’ve never clicked on it, by now you may have noticed a Share button like the one above on many of your favorite sites. Its purpose is to expedite the sharing of news stories, blog posts, and other page content to one or more social networks, other blogs, or simply sending to your printer or bookmarks list.

Each of the courses in the lynda.com Online Training Library® now has its own AddThis Share button, located just under the course release date. If you want to share information about and a link back to the course, click on the Share button, then choose the method of sharing you prefer.

Sharing on Facebook, for example, gives the option to post the link to your profile or sending the information in a private message to one or more of your Facebook friends. Sharing on Twitter automatically creates a shortened bit.ly URL and transfers it to Twitter, ready for you to tweet.

Enjoy! And if you like this or any of our blog posts, the Share button is down here waiting for you at the bottom left of every post.

Wild about Harry

wildharryA noteworthy new Creative Inspirations video installment has been released today on the Online Training Library. Harry Marks is considered by many to be the godfather of broadcast design.

More than any other individual, he changed television by doing things with graphics that had never been attempted before. Not only did he pioneer the use of emerging imaging technologies, but he did so with style and reason. His pioneering work in the field of CGI (Computer-Generated Imagery) brought him into collaboration with many other industry pioneers, including Douglas Trumbull, Robert Abel, Carl Rosendahl (whose company evolved into DreamWorks Animation), and Dale Herigstad (who is also the subject of a different Creative Inspirations).

In the early ’80s, Harry had the idea of bringing together people who work in the disparate fields of technology, entertainment, and design, so he partnered with Richard Saul Wurman and the TED Conference was born. This installment of Creative Inspirations takes viewers on a historic journey through the extraordinary career of Harry Marks.
