What is Lynda?

Lynda is an online learning website with courses on a large variety of topics, including Microsoft Office, Visual Studio, Apple, Adobe, business skills, and much more.  You can access it anytime and anywhere that has an internet connection.  It keeps track of where you are, so if you leave in the middle of a course, it can tell you where you were when you return.
