How Much Does Lynda.com Cost?

Is Lynda.com free?

Sadly, Lynda.com is not free.  You can get a free trial for the website for 10 days, assuming that you’ve never signed up for Lynda before.  After that, though, you will have to pay either a monthly or annual subscription fee in order to continue using Lynda.

One last thing: Lynda also has group membership options if 5 or more people are going to be using it at once.  This might be the case if you’re running a business, nonprofit organization, school, government agency, or library.  We’ll talk more about these in our Lynda.com for Libraries article.

While Lynda isn’t free, it is priced fairly considering the plethora of high quality educational content!
