Free Video-Based Training From

Would you like to access free video training courses on Mac OS, iMovie, Keynote, Photoshop, Lightroom, InDesign, WordPress, GoogleDocs and other topics? For about 20 years, has offered video-based training on thousands of business, software, and creative skills. Typically, a monthly subscription costs $20-$30. I recently learned that the Seattle Public Library offers access to video training. You can access is either a computer at one of the 27 branch locations or from your Mac, at home, as long as you have a library card. To access this from your own Mac, follow these simple instructions:

  1. Visit the database page on the SPL web site
  2. Click on
  3. When prompted to login type in your SPL library card number and associated PIN number then click the Log In button.

This is a great resource and way to add some computer skills.
