Lynda.com is a leading online learning company that helps people learn business, software, technology and creative skills to achieve personal and professional goals.
Spokes members have access to the lynda.com video library of nearly 3,000 top-quality online courses and more than 100,000 engaging tutorials taught by recognized industry experts.
Spokes’ August training calendar was dedicated to marketing and in keeping with that theme, we did a quick search on lynda.com to find courses about marketing – and we found hundreds! Below are just three that we felt would be most beneficial to Spokes members:
- Building an Integrated Online Marketing Plan with Matt Bailey
- Up and Running with Facebook with Justin Seeley
- Blogging for Your Business with Morten Rand-Hendriksen
However, there are plenty of other tutorials that may be of interest to your organization? What about how to better communicate with employees or board members? Or leading better board or staff meetings? Or, using excel to track member data or create graphs for donor reports? What about designing a program brochure? Each of these tutorials can help:
- Communication Fundamentals with John Ullmen
- Leading Productive Meetings with Dave Crenshaw
- Excel 2013 Tips and Tricks with Dennis Taylor
- Designing a Brochure with Nigel French
