WHAT'S HAPPENING - JULY 2014

lynda.com is an online learning company that hosts video-based tutorials on leading software topics, creative techniques and business strategies. The University of Illinois has contracted with lynda.com so that students, faculty and staff can access over 2,700 courses online. Over 15,000 people affiliated with UI currently use the site!
 
lynda.com is divided into various tracks based on the content of a course. For example, lynda.com/business features topics such as project management while lynda.com/developer hosts more technical-related subjects. Customers can create lists of courses that they want to watch and share them with colleagues or friends. The videos, which are taught by industry experts, are usually broken down into five to 15-minute segments. New titles are added to the site on a weekly basis. To log in, visit:
