Perhaps even more incredibly, half of that number—1000 courses—have been added since the spring of 2011. That’s an average of more than one new course per day, on a range of topics from photography to Photoshop, web design to InDesign, business skills to design skills, you name it. So many CreativePro authors are also lynda.com authors that we can’t help but feel some pride and excitement here as well.
Here’s a little lynda.com trivia:
The 2000th video course was Working with Raw-Format Photos in Lightroom and Photoshop by Adobe senior product manager Bryan O’Neil Hughes. By the way, the 1999th course was Creating an Interactive PDF Magazine by yours truly. Missed by that much.
Of the 2000 courses, 785 are on Adobe products. And among those, 239 courses offer Photoshop instruction—not 239 videos, 239 courses! Software siblings InDesign and Illustrator have more than 80 courses each.
About one-sixth of the library is devoted to photography (333 courses). And there are over 400 courses in business topics.
The most prolific lynda.com author is David Rivers, with 83 courses to his credit. While Chris Orwig and Deke McClelland are tied for second place with 60 courses each on Photoshop, Lightroom, and photography.
Finally, if you’ve ever wondered about the process behind the creation of all those videos, you can get a peek behind the scenes by checking out a brief documentary released last year called The lynda.com story, which includes a video called “How we do it.”Tags
