Likelihood to Recommend

LinkedIn Learning (Lynda.com)

Lynda.com is an easy way to get online tutorials about a spectrum of different topics. If you want flexibility in your learning, Lynda.com might perfect for you, because you can take it on the go and use it anywhere with internet access. That said, you need to have the self-discipline to sit down and do the courses. If you are not a good audio learner and require more hands-on learning, then Lynda might not be the software for you.

The presentations helped me develop a deeper understanding of a subject. The information is a nice combination of [being] well organized and applicable to real life information. The test questions are clearly worded and really make you think (but not crazy unrealistic scenarios). I feel very confident about my ability to perform my job.

Lynda.com is very simple to use, from finding videos to watching to going back and finding the chapter you want to re-watch. Love it all!

Alternatives Considered

LinkedIn Learning (Lynda.com)

Lynda is better in some aspects when compared to WizIQ. For example, the recorded videos stream a lot faster and more smoothly on Lynda and content is neatly presented. Also the user interface is much more simple on Lynda. However WizIQ is amazing for live interactive classes and when it comes to security of your videos and documents, Lynda has a lot to learn from WizIQ's security.
