American University has a subscription to Lynda.com, a video tutorial website that can teach you skills ranging from high-end multimedia software like Photoshop to office programs like Excel. Any active member of the AU community (current students, faculty, staff, etc.) can access these tutorials through american.edu/lynda.
But Lynda.com isn’t just for production software. The site has been expanding its selection of tutorials to include business skills, creativity, and services that you might not think would need video tutorials. A few highlights from their most recent batch include:
- Conflict Resolution Fundamentals
- The Creative Spark: Title Case, Typographic Artisans
- User Experience Fundamentals for Web Design
- Foundations of Photography: Specialty Lenses
- On Camera: Video Makeup Techniques
Lynda.com is a seriously useful resource, and it’s exciting to see them expand into new skillsets. Give them a watch at american.edu/lynda.
