Disclaimer: I don’t work for Lynda.com, I’m not in any affiliate program, I’m just a customer. But I’m impressed. I was introduced through a course in college and have been using it ever since.
Being like most of you, I’ve been very excited about the release of CS5. I wasn’t able to attend the “Launch Party” though and went looking to see if my favorite training site had anything for me. They did!
Right off the bat they had training videos that introduced, in detail, live in the new apps, all of the new features. For example, there was a set of training videos on Illustrator CS5’s new features that contained almost two hours of content.
These videos were done by the professional trainers that they use for the standard training and so these are guys or gals that already know there stuff and now know the new stuff too!
Today, with the release of CS5, the training library was immediately updated with a great list of training videos on the new CS5 applications.
Even if you aren’t a member of Lynda.com you can watch a small portion of each training video to see if you’d be interested in signing up. I’ve gone through several training programs and have learn a huge amount in a very short time, including the types of “insider” tricks and options that you think will take you years to figure out or can’t even imagine might be available.
Bottom line, I highly recommend Lynda.com, at least check it out to see if it’s something you’d like.
Here’s the list of available courses for CS5 as of today:
