Design Resource: Lynda.com

Lynda.com is in their 18th year and counting. Lynda.com is a great educational resource for students, professionals, and educators. The format is virtual, via on-line or CD-ROM. The educational programs consist of a myriad of software programs graphic designers use for print and web applications.

The beauty of Lynda.com’s educational programs is that it is one on one (Lynda takes you through each lesson) and you can go at your own pace.
