If you are interested in creating your own app, this is an easy way to learn how to do it.
If you are a professional app developer, this is an easy way to sharpen your skills.
If you are a manager, this is an easy way to ensure that your employees are growing their skills and boosting productivity.
Harvard Business Review recently posted an article titled If You’re Not Helping Employees Learn, You’re Not Doing Your Job. In this article, Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic and Mara Swan state that managers need to select employees who want to learn, nurture learning within their teams, and reward employees for learning.
The Learning Paths at Lynda.com are one way for you to nurture learning within your teams. You can help create citizen developers by making the training available to your current employees. You can also incorporate this training into your new employee onboarding.
Once an employee has completed the “Become a FileMaker Custom App Developer” Learning Path, he/she will receive recognition on his/her LinkedIn profile for having completed the training. As a manager, you can further encourage your employee’s learning with a small reward and by giving them a project to create a custom app that will make your team more productive.
Lynda.com author Cris Ippolite conceived of the idea while recording his FileMaker training videos in the Carpenteria, CA recording studios of LinkedIn. After bringing the idea to executives at LinkedIn the Learning Path was then announced at the FileMaker Developer Conference in the opening keynote.
