Kick Off the School Year with These Lynda.com Courses

Here's a fun fact! Did you know that lynda.com now has so many training courses available that you could sit in your chair for an entire year – 8,760 hours straight! – and never see the same video twice?!

Lynda.com has tons of training courses on technology topics such as software and programming languages, but it also has an increasingly vast library of soft skill courses you might not expect. S, as a fun start to the new academic year, our team in IT Training Services has selected a few courses that we thought you might like – and a few that you might be surprised to find on Lynda.com. Hopefully, these can lead you through a fun, fruitful year. 

Remember - Lynda.com is completely free for all Penn State faculty, staff, and students - happy learning!
