Introduction to LinkedIn Learning course
This LinkedIn Learning course is a comprehensive introduction to Premiere Pro CC 2017 (the version that the university is currently using). Using a project-based approach it begins by touring the interface and then goes through the entire post-capture process - including ingest, organisation, editing, refining, audio editing, basic effects, colour correction, titling, output and more.
The above LinkedIn Learning course is six and a half hours long. If you prefer to jump straight in and learn as you go, you could try this twelve minute video that covers a lot of the basics, from starting your first project to exporting your first video.
Alternatively this curated playlist list of suggested videos covers topics for beginners and more advanced learners in a bit more detail.
