Check out new features in lynda.com
Lynda has introduced three new features:
||Assessments. Measure improvement and verify training was worthwhile. An assessment can be taken before and after a course, allowing learners to skip instruction they already mastered and understand how much they have learned. Already deployed to the most popular lynda.com courses, new assessments will be added regularly.
||Practice environments. Make learning to code faster, more concrete, and more engaging. Learners can work on coding skills in a window located next to the instructional video. Most lynda.com web developer courses now include a practice environment, and we are rapidly assessing other developer courses for the addition of this beneficial tool.
||Enhanced playlists. Distill training to a user’s individual learning path or a team’s specific needs. A social tool, playlists enable the aggregation of full courses, sections of courses for micro learning, and even more-granular content. These elements can be arranged in any order and shared across an organization.
