Renaissance myON® Reader

Renaissance myON Reader is great for student engagement in reading! This platform provides many choices for students to make about their reading. This program also allows students to work on their reading level without showing their peers the book they are reading. Renaissance myON Reader pairs very well with the Renaissance platform and Accelerated Reader!Renaissance myON Reader would be less appropriate where internet access/devices are very limited

Pluralsight's best demographic is already-seasoned technology for professionals who are looking to improve their skills and train themselves to move up in job titles. There are competitors that are better suited for absolute beginners. While the content is excellent and presented in a manner significantly less boring than reading the documentation, it's still up to the user to ensure they're comprehending the information.

Pros

Renaissance myON® Reader

  • Students can choose books based on their reading level.
  • Students and teachers can read books together as if we were in reading circles.
  • Students can choose books by categories of interest.

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

Renaissance myON® Reader

  • When using myON from a mobile device, the layout/icons can take some time to understand.
  • The Lexile level isn’t under each book title.
  • The avatar incentive could be updated for student engagement.

  • I'd like to see Pluralsight better indicate where technology might be deprecated in favor of something newer. Continue to offer that content, but this would give users an opportunity to reconsider the skill they're learning.
  • Pluralsight should offer a native Roku app. There have been several times where I'd like to sit and learn something from the comfort of my couch, but Pluralsight's Roku integration is mediocre at best.
  • Pluralsight could better provide code examples and sample repositories for some of its courses.

I believe this product provides students with faster and easier access to books. This increases their time spent on task reading. myON reader is a product that is great for students and teachers.
If there are any issues and concerns while using myON, there are many help resources available to offer assistance.
myON Reader works so well with the rest of the Renaissance Platform. This consistency is great for everyone!

Each feedback I do for them, I get no response. Minimal communication and followups!

Easier to use and has a better availability to students reading habits.

Pluralsight

Before using Pluralsight, staff was using YouTube to help them with developing certain aspects of their knowledge. However, YouTube is much less structured/organized than Pluralsight. Pluralsight has a very wide offering of courses and it has lot of good content. One quick search and we can get started.

Return on Investment

Renaissance myON® Reader

  • My students love getting on myON because they have so many choices between books and articles.
  • It has helped their A.R. testing scores.
Vanessa Brown | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.
