22. Learning online - Ask Lynda

There are many "learning" videos on YouTube, but it is hard to find something to recommend due to picture or content quality.

Lynda is a website with literally thousands of online "courses" which are split into small biteisize chunks of 1 to 10 minutes. The quality is excellent (so files are big), and there are a good number that are free, so at least you can see what you will get for your money. At $25 a month for an individual it could be expensive. But you can then view as much as you like. This may be very cost effective for institutions.

Content covers many areas, such as Open Office as well as more specialist software such as Dreamweaver.

My son is dyslexic ,I am always interested in learning tools like "" and would love any other audio book sources .He currently uses a computer software text to audio program.however he loves to "read" via any audio tool that he may use/listen to while working etc.I have only found and am not familiar with other teaching programs that might cover perhaps Natural Resources video or Audio. so any links would be appreciated.
