Elevate your enterprise data technology and strategy at Transform 2021.

LinkedIn’s acquisition of Lynda.com is finally bearing fruit. The professional network is now offering members free access to Lynda’s online courses for a trial period.

Premium members will get 30-day access, while non-paying users can try out courses for 21 days. Lynda also has a 10-day trial for anyone interested in perusing its classes.

In April, LinkedIn acquired Lynda.com for $1.5 billion. For over 20 years Lynda has been a mecca for instruction, tutorials, and workshops on a variety of tools for designers, coders, video editors, photographers, and entrepreneurs. Today the site offers directions on everything from designing an Apple Watch app to managing a business.

For LinkedIn, Lynda will bring more premium content to its customers. The site not only wants to serve as the home for your resume and a place to network, but also as a source for career-building tools.
