From my experience, Lynda.com has the best variety and most interactive
training options.  A sales rep contacted me a short time ago about site
licensing. She also mentioned that even without going the site license
route, we could save quite a bit of money if we pooled our funding
together. Perhaps we could band togther if site wide licensing does not
work out.

Community,

I am interested in lynda as well.  UW-Madison I know has it available to
most faculty/staff.  Would their be interest in joining forces and
investing in a large seat count.  I would be fine leading the charge on
this if the interest is there.

Would another tool or tools for training be more beneficial?

Let me know you thoughts.

Sending note to UVUC (University Video User Community) as well.
