Macquarie’s Top 40: What we’re watching on Lynda.com

We’ve only just launched Lynda.com but hundreds of Macquarie staff and students are already discovering a world of new possibilities. We’re counting down the most popular videos and courses watched so far – and the diversity of subject areas might suprise you…

What we’re watching

It seems lot of us are heeding the ubiquitous calls to learn to code, and we’re also hunting for ways to get more out of Office365 (no surprises there!).  We’re also keen on teaching tips (flipping the classroom, teaching future-ready students, foundations of online instruction) as well as employability and inclusive design.  We’re also getting up to speed with social media (#FOMO?), as well as ‘soft’ skills like communication and time management.  Read the Top 40 in full below!

  1. Interesting stats! It’d be interesting to see the overall numbers too and not just the ranking.

    P.S. I suspect JavaScript and AJAX is number 1 because COMP249 students were linked to it 🙂
