Lynda.com is already ranked among the top 15 best online training sites in the world as ranked among the best 50 and over 350 surveyed (see Online Course Report and PC Magazine), but by leveraging Microsoft’s existing MS Office user base of over 1.2 billion, Lynda.com will now have the opportunity to expose 100’s of millions more MS Office, Microsoft Outlook.com, and Microsoft Windows users to their premium video content.
As the global workforce struggles to keep pace with the ever growing demand for more highly trained workers, Microsoft can use its muscle to position Lynda.com as the ‘go to’ online training platform for a variety of disciplines.
In addition to Lynda’s current selection of certification prep video courses, expect to see much more in the way of Microsoft certification training. Right now, Lynda.com members can select from over 4,500 technical and non-technical video training courses ranging from under 10 minutes to over 10 hours each — arguably some of the best video training content on the web (at any price).
We’ve listed over 15 of our favorite Lynda.com video courses for you to try. All offer free video tutorials so that you can ‘try-before-you-buy’. Complete courses are free for 10-days, and some complete courses, like Up and Running with LinkedIn (~2.5hrs) and Learn LinkedIn Sales Navigator: The Basics (~1.5hrs), are just plain free.
