The platform does a good job of offering a content offering fit for the needs of the business. My organization can select the learning courses that are offered in order to fit with the people and technologies we serve. The courses are structured well enough for users to pick up where they left off and in a way that enables them to listen or engage while performing work. The content itself allows individuals to learn technologies and concepts important to the professional world. I would say Skillsoft is best suited for individuals to choose their own learning path and to engage with the content that is suited for them. I would say it is less likely that users would actively engage with content if it was mandatory. Therefore, I would recommend managers put a lot of thought into the strategy they have for Skillsoft.

They have a large library - make sure you clearly study the library offerings and choose the courses that are best for you as you will never be able to use all of them. Make sure you survey your user base before purchasing the licensing of the library courses so the courses are 'marked' with an employee in mind to keep costs minimized. Only purchase the Books 24x7 if you have a large IT department - otherwise you might want to lease a smaller content portion. Their Leadership Development, Project Management, business series and critical thinking and technical products are exceptional.

Pros

Skillport

  • Good capability to host all kinds of training types (PDF, Powerpoint, captivate-created training content, etc.)
  • Gives an easy way for me as an administrator to track completion of the training content through the reporting feature
  • Easy to add and remove users to certain training groups as needed

Skillsoft Leadership Development Program

  • Covers a wide-breadth of topics ranging from desktop / office skills to communications skills to leadership development
  • Offers knowledge portals (Knowledge Centers) around specific topic areas such as Management Development, Six Sigma, Professional Foundations, Sales, etc - that aggregate content from the large Skillsoft resources and present it in a way that is both meaningful and relevant to the learners. Plus, they have editors update the featured topic each month.
  • Include a wide variety of learning media such as eLearning courses, books, book summaries and videos.

Cons

Skillport

  • I've had issues in the past when I have completed a training, but it doesn't show up that it is completed.
  • I think Skillport could be more visually pleasing.

Skillsoft Leadership Development Program

  • The platform does have room to improve their response time for assistance. Depending on the issue an internal "help team may be required"
  • They removed what was called "knowledge centers" which could be summed up as an accumulation of books, courses, exams, practice exams, articles and basically any asset within the platform surrounded by a particular subject. This was a great benefit to some of our customer. It was a one-stop-shop but now you would need to search independently for all of those assets.
  • Because the platforms library can be customized its a bit of a struggle to have certain assets changed or modified within Skillsoft. You basically are on their time when it comes to updates or any major changes you as a customer would like to make.

I would recommend to renew as this is part of our employee development goals and we make a strong commitment to develop employees' people skills. I think SkillSoft has a very innovative approach to develop people's interpersonal skills other than traditional classroom learning.

The integration between the main Skillsoft portal and Books24x7 could use improvement. Most users don't realize there is actually a separate books portal because the link to it is not that visible. Yet, once they discover it, they realize that the books portal is actually easier to use to search for books, ebook summaries, and videos.

Just that it takes a village. It cannot be done alone. Everyone needs to know what you are doing and what their role is in the implementation. Tightly managing the project management schedule and resources is important in ensuring that everything gets done on time, and with quality. Education is KEY

Alternatives Considered

The products we used are not listed. Element K had an e-learning module. It was difficult to use and was not cost effective. It did not have the breadth of topics to choose from and the courses were limited to the instructor lead titles.

I used Skillsoft before discovering lynda.com at my current firm. Both have strong offerings. lynda.com has broader offerings and seems more technically oriented

Return on Investment

Skillport

  • Access to quality educational content for employees to take advantage of and invest back into their work.
  • Technology training at scale - Users can access courses at any time apart from dedicated training sessions.
Joshua Melder | TrustRadius Reviewer

Skillsoft Leadership Development Program

  • We are not fully utilizing it due to lack of human resources. It could be better, but there is little time to devote to it.
