Overall Satisfaction with LinkedIn Learning (Lynda.com)

At a higher education institute, Lynda.com is available to students and staff for professional and personal development. Lynda.com is available across the whole institution.
  • Lynda.com has a variety of courses that can be applicable to anyone.
  • The cost of use is free for us in our institution.
  • There is access to different supplemental resources in each course.
  • Lynda.com can be overwhelming at times and the resources are not always organized in a conducive manner for learning.
  • I think there is room for additional courses on certain topics like how to use statistical packages such as R, Stata, SAS.
  • Overall, Lynda.com has provided me with a good ROI because it allows me to be efficient and knowledgeable in my job tasks.
Lynda.com and Coursera and so similar. I believe Coursera has more statistical programming courses than Lynda.com
I would highly recommend Lynda.com to colleagues and I think it's best suited for increasing knowledge on topics that you may not be familiar with. For example, if you're working on a project that requires in-depth knowledge of Excel spreadsheets, Lynda.com would be great to provide that insight needed to complete the task. Lynda.com may not necessarily be great for topics that may need hands-on practical exercises.
