So far, I have enjoyed using the tutorials on Lynda. The videos are easy to follow and I think having the visuals makes the tutorials worthwhile, otherwise the instructor’s direction gets lost in the language. Also, I really like that the instructor includes keyboard shortcuts that will be useful later.
Having the tutorial on the iPad and Flash open on the desktop made it very easy to test out the functions of Flash for myself. I will probably need more experience fumbling around with the program to get a better handle on Flash, but I think this was a good start. I have to say that my favorite function is the deco tool options. A flame option? Of course I am going to try and use it every opportunity that I get.
