Lynda.com is great for on-demand, self-paced eLearning - both technical and soft skills.

Pluralsight

If you're a web developer you definitely need Pluralsight to stay relevant in this industry. If you're a web designer that uses tools to draw or paint web pages Pluralsight may have something for you, but not much. Another thing where Pluralsight is great is the self-assessment tests. They are a geat place to find questions and answers to use in technical interviews.

Pluralsight

  • When it comes to Microsoft tools, languages and techniques, Pluralsight brings its customers the very latest in content. Just after the release of ASP.NET Core 2.0 came out they had a course available online.
  • The instructors are top-notch. You get incredible presenters such as Paul Sheriff, Shawn Wildermuth, Scott Allen and more. All are incredibly articulate and provide great download code.
  • Pluralsight offers a cool set of tools that let you take a test and see where you stand on the learning curve of a given technology. This lets you know where you should be brushing up on a given technology.

Cons

LinkedIn Learning (Lynda.com)

  • I find it helpful to have more interactive pieces to accompany the lessons and not just the workbook that you do as you watch the video. But something to practice a few more times after to make sure the lessons sink in.

Pluralsight

  • Easier to understand material such as bullets and lists that allow for note-taking. Some courses offer but some do not.

Lynda.com is very simple to use, from finding videos to watching to going back and finding the chapter you want to re-watch. Love it all!

Alternatives Considered

LinkedIn Learning (Lynda.com)

Lynda.com is more comprehensive and professional [than alternatives].

Pluralsight

Pluralsight is simply more robust and makes more sense for an organization like ours where we want our employees to have the freedom to explore a wide variety of disciplines, and the adaptability to start/stop courses at any skill level. On a trial basis, the feedback from our team was nothing but positive, and had a major impact in our selecting Pluralsight over other alternatives.

Return on Investment

LinkedIn Learning (Lynda.com)

  • Very positive. I was able to implement our group SharePoint site after watching the training and now I'm the SME in my group. Same for JIRA.

Pluralsight

  • One positive impact is it has kept our employees engaged in the material they work with every day. Instead of becoming stagnant and complacent, they are actively searching out ways to develop skills and do more with the tools available to them.
  • It saves money when it comes to offering training and development opportunities company-wide. It would be much more costly to invest in specialized training for that number of employees.
  • One potential negative is the amount of company time spent on coursework over work responsibilities. A balance must be struck and individuals should be encouraged to explore the training on their own time.
