Developing strong business skills, keeping up with the latest technology and running your business efficiently can be a challenge. Seminars, workshops and continuing education classes can help businesses stay current and up-to-date, but can be costly. A convenient alternative is to access the Lynda.com training library with videos on the latest business tools and topics.
Lynda.com offers thousands of online video tutorials to help individuals improve skills in areas such as computer software, graphic design, and social media including Excel, LinkedIn, Word, PowerPoint, Microsoft Office, InDesign, and Quickbooks. You can also access tutorials on good business practices including communication, leadership, finance, accounting, and marketing.
Each video course is taught by an expert, and members have unlimited access to any video they want to watch. You can pause videos at any time and you can even view a transcript of the video tutorial in case you miss anything.
A personal subscription to Lynda.com can cost up to $35 a month; however Northbrook Library cardholders (personal or business) can access the program for free. Visit www.northbrook.info/eresources and search for Lynda.com and follow the prompts to set up your account. Any business within incorporated Northbrook can obtain a free Library card with proof of their physical location shown on a printed letterhead, business card, or the current real estate tax bill.
