CBT Nuggets

Many Microsoft servers and Cisco networking topics are covered which suits me best. Some IT topics are not covered as opposed to other training platforms. Things that require a hands-on lab can be difficult to simulate as well.

It is well suited for enhancing your current curriculums and allowing learners the ability to expand their knowledge with current book selections. It is a valuable asset to eLearning courses and for developing your employees

Cons

CBT Nuggets

  • Because it is on-demand, it's difficult to carve out time to dedicate to training.
  • I've had trouble with following along with some of the lab exercises.
  • It's rare, but videos can freeze up. You'll need to close the tab and start over.

Books 24x7 is a useful tool for growth, knowledge sharing, and overall intellectual health within the company. Our company has been very forward thinking in offering this to every employee. As a result, people have been able to grow in areas they may not have previously explored because of the free access to resources they may not have bothered with before they had free access to them.

The ability to read and/or listen to books offline is very helpful especially while flying and in remote areas with no internet. The books are easy to load on your laptop, phone or tablet. This is invaluable.

Alternatives Considered

CBT Nuggets

While you don't get the live instructor that you get with some other solutions, I've found the videos to be extremely helpful. If something is unclear, usually going back to re-watch clears things up for me. I like to get my hands in lots of server and networking functions and CBT Nuggets is great for both.

We have used no other products similar to Books 24x7. I am certain that HR probably tested or reviewed several options before settling on this product, but I have no information related to why they decided on Books 24x7.

Return on Investment

CBT Nuggets

  • Training is always an important goal each year but always the first to be cut from the budget. This is a cheaper alternative and can offer more than a single course.
  • We don't need to send someone away for an entire week for training, it can be viewed any time.
Curt Sminkey | TrustRadius Reviewer

Skillsoft Books

  • The product has improved the furthering education aspect of all jobs within in the company by offering access to books both inside and outside the employees job description.
  • Workgroups have be able to read books at the same time while cooperating on a certain initiative, allowing for open conversations in relation to what they are reading.
  • Our company's leadership initiatives have been strengthened due to the free access to leadership related material offered within Books 24x7.
