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.

Udacity

Udacity is great for working professionals who want to continue their education by learning relevant technical job skills. The platform offers a well-produced content library with new courses added regularly. Overall, Udacity is best suited for individuals who need to gain technical industry experience and certifications in order to better perform in their workplaces. Udacity is a very valuable resource, however, I would not recommend it for all organizations - as there are more cost-friendly options on the market.

Pros

CBT Nuggets

  • It's on-demand. You can take zero or 100 courses for the same price and at your own convenience.
  • Courses are organized extremely well and instructors are great.
  • You can cover a wide range of training topics - Microsoft, Networking, database, ETC.
  • You can go back and re-watch videos to get a better understanding.

Udacity

  • More than fourteen projects between two Nanodegrees. You can showcase these projects in your portfolio.
  • Real-time feedback and a community of supporters.
  • Knowledge hub/base with easy search and some really useful information.

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.

Udacity

  • Quiz questions in some cases could be made clearer. I didn't feel the questions were always phrased in a way that I could easily understand what was being asked.
  • Requests for support can sometimes take a very long time to get resolved.
  • Cost structure changed from a fixed-price model to a subscription-only model, and prices are significantly increased as such.

They are already very good. But, would be great if Udacity improves the area of standardizing offline projects and exercises so that people could attempt to work offline. Including documentation on how to do it. More practical or real-world projects to choose and work on after course completion. Maybe a community can do it.

I didn't personally have any issues with the program, but scheduling time to review the final project was easy, and the assistant was pleasant to work with.

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.

Udacity

I combined my learning from various platforms and did on exclusively reply on any one. However, the free courses in Udacity lacks the comprehensiveness as Coursera.

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.

  • I am already in a great position as a CTO with a great company. I hope to be able to build some new technology with what I am learning, but I haven't applied any of it yet to my own real-world problems. I will though.
