For our latest episode of GovTech Innovators, I spoke with Deanna Grady, sales manager for the state and local government sector of Lynda.com, a training company that offers online video courses for customers who want to increase their proficiency with several kinds of software.

Government workers can use online training from companies like Lynda.com for convenient, cost-effective professional development. It’s probably cheaper to purchase an enterprise license for employees to take video courses in Excel or software development than it is to fly them out-of-town to a remote training facility. These benefits make online training an attractive option for those who need it.

I spoke with Deanna about online training for government workers and how her company plays a role.
