Overall Satisfaction with lynda.com

Currently, we are using Lynda.com for professional development and cross-training. We have employees take training based on what they would like to learn as well as filling in the gaps on what others know. It is being used across our organization but we are using floating licenses.
  • 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.
  • We have saved a lot of money on training.
  • Some gaps still need to be filled after taking the training. This can lead to more hours of staff time which can negatively impact the investment.
  • The robust catalog has allowed for our employees to take training they may not have otherwise been interested in. It has helped encourage professional development which will show in the long run.
lynda.com is very good for getting information and training based on a topic. If you have the additional examples, it can also help with experiential learning. However, if you do not have the examples, you will be watching the videos and have to practice on your own. If you are trying to learn something, the practice is invaluable.
