Introducing your new best friend, Lynda.com!
Remember that time you were working on a project late at night and if you knew how to use the software correctly you would have been done hours earlier? There is something on MyFairfield.com that could have helped you all along, Lynda.com. This is a learning site that provides instructional videos that teach a myriad of topics. Whether you are learning how to utilize the animation feature in a PowerPoint presentation or how to better balance your work within a team project, there is a presentation for you.
So you are asking yourself, how can this help me? Depending on your major there are areas you are going to want to know more about before you enter the workforce. For instance, if you are a communication major you had better know how to create a website or a blog. You also are going to want to be proficient in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint (and really proficient, not just say you are). Luckily, you can learn how to do some of those things you might need in the comfort of your own room. Lynda.com releases about 10 new courses a week to add to its already large 2,400 across a variety of categories not just technical. And it is open for business 24/7!
