Fun fact: did you know that lynda.com releases an average of 8 new courses per week?

As such, we wanted to take a second to do a summer spotlight – since summer is such a great time to try to new things or fit in a little professional development – on a few new classes that we thought might be especially relevant for you based on the tutorials the most Penn Staters watch and use. Let us know what you think! We’re always looking for feedback on new and fun ways to let you know about new lynda.com courses or what kind of playlists and updates we can provide you with.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the awesomeness that is lynda.com, lynda.com is an online education service offering thousands of premiere video courses and tutorials on software, creative, and business skills. With lynda.com you can learn at your own pace and on your own time (it’s available 24/7), plus the best part is that it’s FREE to all Penn State faculty, staff, and students!

Based on courses that have been popular at Penn State over the past year, here are some new releases to check out:
