Lynda The MOOC

 

Lynda was established in the mid-90’s. It is based in California, and it wasn’t originally created to be a massiv indexe open online course (MOOC) website. Online courses began to make an appearance in 2002, and by 2008 Lynda Weinman (the founder) was producing and creating her own series of documentaries on learning, art, and education. Check out more amazing education oriented content at Edumuch.com.
Lynda is international, and it has offices in England, Australia, and the United States. In 2015 it was acquired by linkedIn, and it is still helping many students improve their situation in life. Whether they are learning for business or pleasure, Lynda is a wonderful platform for learning and training.

Lynda has its own in-house team of experts, and they produce videos which are easy to use with varying degrees of skill and know how. There is a 10-day free trial, for those who want to see what it is all about, and there are three main categories to choose from:

Business
Creative
Technology
Within each of these are many sub-categories. There are also learning laths tailored towards reaching a specific goal, such as becoming a digital marketer, project coordinator, or graphic designer. Lynda has some 600 expert teachers, and the site enables the student to learn anywhere, and to switch between devices (computer, tablet, phone) quickly and effortlessly with their designated app.


Lynda also provides educational services for companies, and offer group memberships for those who are interested. There are over 4,000 videos on Lynda.com, with more being added every week. There are two individual membership options: Basic membership – the monthly fee is $24.99. There is also the option of a single annual payment, which comes out to $239.88 ($19.99 per month).

Premium membership – $34.99 per month, and here there is also the option of an annual payment, which comes out to $359.88 ($29.99 per month)

Lynda can sometimes feel too big for a first-timer, but you get used to the platform and the design quickly. Once you choose your courses and are up and running, everything runs smoothly. Lynnda is also supposed to have great customer service, though I never used it personally. I may have, had there not been a video titled “how to use Lynda.com”images

The interface of the Lynda platform is very well-designed. You can tell that the creators of the website have a keen eye and attention to detail. The courses can be view in a number of resolutions, and the player is easy to use. Alongside the player is often a transcript of the course, which makes following much easier. FAQs created by students are also available, and there is a vibrant community of users on the Lynda website. Learning becomes a much more social and pleasant experience, which is something which a lot of MOOCs have in common. Lynda’s goal is “to help you learn the skills you need to achieve your full potential.” Plain and simple, it is a place where people can grow and evolve. Lynda is doing a great job at educating those who frequent its digital halls. It provides students with the tools they need to really advance themselves, and that is no small feat.

Argan baby!

Caring for you hair and skin is something that we should all do, but all too frequently we let fall by the wayside. And no, I’m not talking to you girls, I’m well aware of how much you gals care about making sure you’re flawless, I’m talking to all the guys out there. Surprised? You shouldn’t be, skin and hair care is hardly a girl thing alone. We have skin just like the girls do, and we definitely need to take care of it just as much as the girls do, perhaps even more than girls do, as we have been neglecting it for far too long. You may think that grabbing some random shampoo off the shelf and whatever bar of soap you think has the best shape is sufficient in deciding what products to use, but let me tell you, it really isn’t.

Sure you may be able to get by, but there are things that you just are not considering when you go about acting like this. You completely forget about conditioning, and let me tell you, if your hair is longer than a buzzcut, you’re going to be needing conditioner. Trust me, conditioner is not just a girl thing, and if you want healthy hair, you’ll use it. And you definitely need something to clean out your pores, which some bars of soap just do not do a well enough job at. It’s a real shame that you’re still getting zits, despite being well past your teens, but it’s easily fixable. In fact, both problems are fixable with the same thing, which is to start using argan oil based products such as argan oil shampoo from Maple Holistics.

So no more grabbing stuff randomly off of the shelves, either you look at the ingredients to see if it has argan oil in it, or you just buy online where you can clearly see what’s inside of the product.argan-oil

Honestly, argan oil has really helped me out, as it helped me with both my acne problem and (although this is probably more than just the argan oil by itself) helped get rid of my dandruff. I pretty much only use products with argan oil in it now, and I’ve actually started eating argan oil with my food, as it is full of omega 3 and vitamin E. Argan oil is a truly versatile substance, not only great for healing scar tissue (did I mention that it can be used to heal up scar tissue? Because it totally can) but also great as a topping on bread.

It’s no wonder that the Moroccans have been doing this for years, as morocco is where argan oil originates from. And they definitely use it in their everyday life. Not only as a topping, but also as a treatment for minor skin ailments and hair maladies. It was a truly marvelous day when we discovered argan oil, not only for morocco, but also for the rest of humankind as well. Truly, argan oil can and does do it all.
