Pros and Cons

  • Great database of trainings.
  • Search feature is spot on.
  • If you have the additional access to use exercise material, the material can be very helpful depending on the course.
  • Not all topics are covered to the same extent.
  • Some courses are better than others.
  • Having to pay extra for the examples can lead to the course not being as effective.

Lynda - Blessing in a sea of online platforms

Pros and Cons

  • Lynda.com connects you to the most diverse and wide set audience.
  • It helps you market your course/videos.
  • It is very cheap and economical when compared to some of the other competitors.
  • Safety of videos is important. Lots of videos are leaked on Torrent and other sharing sites. This is very demotivating.
  • Trial period is really too short to make a call, it should be 1 month at least.
  • Should be available in live format as well as recorded videos format.

Lynda organize the training videos well

Pros and Cons

  • Lynda.com training videos are really easy to understand. The trainers have done an excellent job to walk us through the courses. Their English is easy to understand.
  • The exercise files are helpful along with the videos. It helps with practicing the explained courses within video training.
  • Videos are organized well within categories which helps with searching for a video easily.
  • A few new tools and technologies are not available to learn in lynda.com. So if they can get all trainings available immediately after a new tool comes to the industry, it would be great.
  • CRM training would be great to have within PipeDrive.
  • User management would be great. If I can have multiple users for my team under my account, then I can manage access easily.

Lynda: Must Have Self-Discipline To Use

Score 7 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • An in-depth tutorial, training, and reviews.
  • An influx of information and specialists/experts available to help.
  • Online courses for a multitude of topics—we're talking hundreds of videos.
  • Able to take this on the go. Don't have to be in a desk at work to use lynda.com.
  • Different results depending on each person's learning style or each expert's teaching style. Like in school, not all matchups will be beneficial and totally, completely informational.
  • Sometimes the videos can be long, which means it can be easy to get distracted/not pay attention. Sometimes long videos are warranted, sometimes they're not. Lynda is best for candidates with the self-discipline to stay committed.

Pros and Cons

  • Variety of Courses
  • Volume of Courses
  • Easily Accessible
  • User Friendly
  • From a management perspective, it can be difficult to manage the users' rights as you purchase rights.
  • Some of the courses have been reported as boring or monotone. I think the addition of interactive videos in the future would be beneficial.
