MINNEAPOLIS (Oct. 6, 2014) – Globe Education Network and Lynda.com have partnered to provide online learning tools to enhance the educational experience. All students, staff and faculty at Globe University, Minnesota School of Business, Broadview University, Broadview Entertainment Arts University, Minnesota School of Cosmetology and the Institute of Production and Recording now have access to Lynda.com, an online training library that offers thousands of courses and video tutorials that are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
“This is a valuable resource for not only students, but faculty and staff, too,” says Katrina Neckuty-Fodness, project director of curriculum development for Globe Education Network. “Students can learn additional concepts by watching online video courses outside of class, and their instructors can reinforce student learning with hands-on application during class, making class time even more meaningful.”
Lynda.com can be accessed directly through the Web with login credentials, or via the colleges’ learning management system, CampusConnect, on an iPad™ or computer. Thousands of courses and video tutorials are available on a variety of topics, including education, software programs, IT, media production and design, marketing and many more. Courses and tutorials can be searched for by topic, skill level, software and author. The content is continuously refreshed and delivered by industry experts, ensuring the most up-to-date information is available.
“We’re always looking to provide our students with additional resources,” says Neckuty-Fodness. “Some of our faculty members were already using Lynda.com for their personal and professional development, so it just made sense to expand the partnership formally.”
The Lynda.com subscription aligns with Globe Education Network’s mission of providing hands-on, career training to prepare graduates for the workforce through applied learning projects, technology and flipped classrooms.
