Adobe Just Updated All Of Its Products – Use Our New Courses to Master Each One
November 2, 2016
It’s been a big year for LinkedIn and Lynda.com.
In September, we brought the power of both platforms together to form LinkedIn Learning. Our new online learning platform combines the high-quality, expert-led content from Lynda.com with the professional network of LinkedIn, to provide data-driven recommendations that empower professionals to learn the skills they need to advance their careers and achieve more.
For over 20 years, Lynda.com has been the creative professional’s trusted source – the place to learn new creative skills, stay on top of new trends and technologies and get inspired. All told, Lynda.com, and now LinkedIn Learning, offer more than 1,200 courses on Adobe products alone and more than 2,400 courses for creative professionals, including numerous weekly series covering print and web design, video production, photography and more.
And that commitment to creativity continues today.
Minutes ago at Adobe MAX, Adobe announced the 2017 versions of its Creative Cloud applications, including Adobe XD, Photoshop CC 2017, InDesign CC 2017, Illustrator CC 2017, and After Effects CC 2017, to name a few. To ensure you don’t miss a beat, we’ve worked closely with Adobe to release new courses on each, the moment new versions became available.
Our new LinkedIn Learning courses include:
- Photoshop CC 2017: New Features
- InDesign CC 2017: New Features
- Illustrator CC 2017: New Features
- Premiere Pro CC 2017: New Features
- After Effects CC 2017 New Features
- Adobe XD CC: New Features
- Photoshop CC 2017 Essential Training: The Basics
- And more...
But our presence at Adobe MAX goes far beyond our new releases. More than 30 LinkedIn Learning instructors will be taking the stage, many of whom are “MAX Masters” – speakers who have earned top ratings at previous MAX events. Some of them, such as Julieanne Kost, are Adobe employees who lend their expertise as Adobe course instructors on LinkedIn Learning.
If you are attending Adobe MAX, be sure to check out some of our speaker’s sessions, including:
- Rich Harrington on Premiere Pro and After Effects
- Chris Orwig on Photoshop and photography
- Julieanne Kost on Photoshop and photography
- David Blatner on InDesign
- Anne-Marie Concepción on InDesign
- Bert Monroy on digital illustration and painting
- Chris Converse on web design and user experience
The breadth of topics being covered at this week’s conference gives evidence to the fact that there’s more to being a creative professional than simply mastering software. It’s also important to always be expanding your skillset and to learn the business strategies that can help you succeed.
We’ve got you covered with:
- Skill-based courses. Learn concepts that go beyond specific software tools. This includes foundations for all creatives, including courses on typography, color and layout. And we go deep into emerging trends like design thinking and virtual reality photography and video production.
- Relevant business courses. LinkedIn Learning offers business skill courses specifically for creatives, including freelancing and starting your own business – courses that teach the skills necessary to thrive within the industry.
- Courses for creative inspiration. Our library features more than 100 documentaries that showcase top designers, photographers and other creatives. They’re a great way to see how working pros tackle creative challenges, such as designer Aaron Draplin does when he designs an incredible logo on film.
- Learning paths. In a library containing more than 5,000 courses, where do you start? That’s where our learning paths come in – each is a carefully curated list of courses that will help you excel in your field of choice. For example, our Become a Graphic Designer learning path presents the graphic design skills you need through 24 hours of courses and 53 quizzes that help you test your knowledge.
To many creative professionals, this shouldn’t come as a surprise – Lynda.com has been providing this breadth and depth of instruction for years, and LinkedIn Learning makes this experience even better.
By coupling the same great Lynda.com content with the intelligence that comes with a 450 million member network, LinkedIn Learning can provide personalized course recommendations as well as unique insights into what courses are trending within the creative industry and within specific companies you’re most interested in. We’re taking the guesswork out of learning so you can achieve your greatest career goals.
