(Updated) Lynda Courses Downloader with GUI [v2.0.0] Free Download – Google Drive Links

I am learning C# and wanted to make a project that helps me practice it. I made a lynda.com 20 account a while ago using @SaM ‘s method 56 whick made me want to create a program that downloads courses for offline use and at the same time practice my c#. I had no intention to share my program until @Makaroni_Makaroni asked for a program that downloads courses by scraping lynda.com 20. I was already doing that with my program by using Selenium so I thought why not share my program.

GUI is available for the windows version with CLI version for macos and linux
Moreover, I am working on the ability to download the course to Google Drive directly.
