A Cloud Guru (Linux Academy)

Where it's strong: Linux, open source technologies, web development administration, virtualization and automation, cloud platforms like AWS and Azure, CI/CD trainingWhere it's lacking: The more traditional aspects of IT -- Windows, Active Directory, IT Service Management. storage administration and networking basics... advanced networking also, like CCNA, would be nice.

Rosetta Stone Language Learning Software

While there are things that Rosetta Stone could do to help the teachers and district with providing educational data, I have seen a tremendous improvement in many beginning ELLs. This program has given them the confidence to move from silence in the classroom to be able to share their thoughts and demonstrate their grasp of the class material.

Pros

A Cloud Guru (Linux Academy)

  • The videos are short and easy to ingest. This is super important! Long videos get boring and people lose interest quickly
  • New training videos for new technology are always being added regularly
  • In addition to new videos, existing training videos are updated when software or technology changes, ensure that you always have current information while you're learning

Cons

A Cloud Guru (Linux Academy)

  • The merger with A Cloud Guru has confused things a bit. They're slowly replacing the Linux academy branded training with ACG training (which is fine) but if we found ourselves losing access to training videos while we were in the midst of watching them
  • A more robust community would be nice. There's the Slack channel, but I wish there was more robust community features
  • It would be nice to be able to download videos locally on desktops and laptops. This helps greatly with rewinding the video to reiterate key learning points

Rosetta Stone Language Learning Software

  • One has to have a high speed Internet connection to use Rosetta Stone. Not everyone has that.

The site can have some issues. It can be difficult to return to the training module you were viewing after some time away from the site and you have to relogin. We've also had issues where the session will time out at random points, which makes it frustrating to move on to the next videos in the module when you have to re-login and try and find which one you left off on.

Rosetta Stone is a very comprehensive program with several different components. In truth after an initial orientation by a teacher, students (adults or school children) are able to use the software and navigate through its sections.

I've never had to communicate with Linux Academy's customer support aside from some minor billing issues, which were easily ironed out in a very quick manner.

I would have liked to give a 10 but there are some areas where Rosetta Stone could improve that would help those using it in an educational setting. That being said, I have seen such good results in my students that I feel this is a very worthwhile product. One of my biggest fears going into this new school year was that with all the changes being made to the Leaning English Language Programs in the district we might lose Rosetta Stone as a tool for our ELLs. I'm happy to say that the district also saw the value of this program.

Alternatives Considered

A Cloud Guru (Linux Academy)

We've tried CBT Nuggets, Pluralsight, ITProTV, and even official training programs directly from the software vendors. Linux Academy outranks them all simply because of the quality of the training videos compared to the monthly costs. It's hard to beat its affordably, especially when the training material is such high quality and engaging

Rosetta Stone Language Learning Software

I have used Memrise, Busuu and Duolingo which are similar language learning programs. I would rank any of those above Rosetta Stone. I don't see much "value added" from paying to use Rosetta Stone, and my students get more enjoyment from the other mentioned programs. I believe that comprehensible input is the best approach to language learning which isn't accomplished with solely online instruction.

  • Students have gone from silent bystanders to valued participants in the classroom.
  • The students who work with fidelity in the program become English proficient with more confidence and more quickly than those who dabble.
