Download lynda.com Course Notes

If you love the convenience of online learning, you’ve no doubt heard of lynda.com. If not, run over there and check it out; I’ll wait. I’m a huge fan, not just because several of the course instructors are my friends and colleagues, but because I spend so much time there learning—and dabbling—myself.

One of the features introduced with the site’s new layout last year was the ability to take notes while watching a course video. Taking notes is as easy as clicking the notes tab, then entering information that will help with recall later on. The notes are timestamped when you start the note, which allows you to jump to the corresponding point in the video when you need to review. Up until this week, the notes you took were only accessible when you were online and logged into your lynda.com account.

You now have the ability to download all your course notes so that you can review them at your convenience. Clicking on the download icon gives you the choice to download as a Word file, PDF, or plain text file or to send to Google Docs or Evernote. In addition to information about the course—including title and description—you’ll also be able to see the note’s timestamp and a thumbnail of the video at that point. The notes are also organized into chapters and videos for easy review.
