Why Does Porch Pig promote Lynda.com ?
The short answer is like many others I have a great amount of trouble learning.
The main answer is I was able to learn using Lynda.coms format.
Lynda.com classes are well thought out and structured towards learning. "Beginner" truly means beginner!
I turn on the video, and utilize the the closed captioning otption so that I can listen, watch, read and do!.
Lynda.coms instructors are approachable and usually answer your questions within 24 hours. I have yet to meet a traditional instructor with a rewind or pause button let alone a closed captioning bubble above their head
I could go on and on about why I value Lynda.com but try the 7 day free trial in combination with the GIMP software and see for yourself what makes Lynda.com my preferred alternative education choice.
Is Lynda.com affordable ?
