Lynda.com is one of the net’s most popular video learning services. I recently spent 30 days using this service and in this blog post, I answer the question: is Lynda.com worth it?
What You Get
I signed up to a 7-day free trial before ponying up for a paid account. It cost me just under EUR19 for a month’s access. For this, I was able to watch any of Lynda.com’s 2,120+ courses and use their service on my computer, on my iPhone and on my Android device.
Lynda.com offers a premium version for just under EUR28 per month. This premium service gives users access to all of Lynda.com’s source files and lets users save videos for offline access. Lynda.com also offers a discount if you subscribe for the year.
Every time I logged into Lynda.com, I was prompted to upgrade to the premium service, and the instructors for several of the courses made reference to it. This hard sell actually put me off paying more for the service.
