Understandably, there’s a heavy emphasis on Office 365 and Canvas training so far. It’s worth noting that there’s also interest in both technical skill development in areas such as programming languages and general professional development on business topics, such as customer service and time management.
An emerging trend in the usage data points to faculty who may be using Lynda.com as supplemental learning materials for their courses. For instance, we’ve heard positive feedback about the quality of the statistics package training available.
