Free Access to Lynda.com on-line training
Lynda.com is regarded as an outstanding resource for video-based on-line learning, particularly for photography software from Adobe such as Photoshop, Lightroom, Photoshop Elements etc. There are also a large number of videos on photography topics more generally including camera equipment, capturing images and post processing. Access is normally by paying a monthly subscription, starting at $US25.
However, Queensland residents have free access to all Lynda.com training videos through the State Library of Queensland (SLQ). The Library’s state-wide subscription allows all Queenslanders unlimited access to the online courses from any compatible desktop or portable device, whether on a library computer, at their home or business or on the go.
All you need to do is become a member of the State Library of Queensland. The following web site has details about joining the SLQ and then accessing all the Lynda.com training videos: http://www.slq.qld.gov.au/search/eresources/lynda.com
Thanks to one of the participants at BCG’s Introduction to Lightroom Workshop for making us aware of this great opportunity.
