Design Matters from the Archive: Lynda Weinman

To learn a skill you a) go to school or b) teach yourself. But to be self taught you need books, you need manuals, you need hands-on experience. In the digital age, some of the greatest resources for people learning on their own are found online. On sites like lynda.com. In 1995, Lynda Weinman co-founded the site with her husband. It has since grown into a company with nearly 500 employees.

On this episode of Design Matters, Debbie talks to lynda.com’s Lynda Weinman about how the internet is challenging the traditional classroom model. "That worked because of the scarcity of information. I think, in an age of abundant information, we have a completely different challenge."
