A journey to explore the Lynda.com learning platform which provides access to thousands of courses and videos for both learning and self development and teaching.

Create a learning Plan

You can set a learning plan or goal to keep you on track and help you reach your learning goals.

This can start with setting up your SMART goals. SMART stands for Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Time sensitive.

Identify the topic you want to start learning, specify the subject field and level. Check if the topic is measurable or not. Ask yourself is this topic and subject attainable and relevant to you and or your job, finally you have to check if your topic is time sensitive and need to reach your learning goal as soon as possible or it's a future learning goal.

Whatever your learning goal is, you need to know where you should start. Lynda.com courses fall into one of 12 main sections, each area contains a list of topics related to that area, as well as software related to these areas and topics.

Taking notes

The notebook tab is located next to the contents tab.

Adding notes is very easy, all you need to do is open the notebook tab, write your note and click enter (return key). Infront of each note taken a small icon will appear identifying the time signature inside the video or chapter, if you click on that video it will start playing from the the time you added the note. If you want to delete a note just click on the trash icon. These notes can be downloaded and used if desired. Click on the down arrow (Export) and choose how you want to save your notes.
