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.

Following the pandemic students are made to sit in their computers all day absorbing learning, we as educators have little time to assess what they have learned, and students are often overloaded with information. The SplashLearn is like the moment in class when everyone zooms out of their auto-mode and gets active in class to compete. The students love playing, learning, and checking their skills along the way.
Read full review Pros 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.

SplashLearn does a good job at gamifying the learning process. Read full review Cons 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.

There sometimes are glitch in showing the grades for students. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
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.

The free usage of SplashLearn, coupled with the extensive coverage of math topics from kindergarten to grade 5 puts it ahead of competitors.
Read full review Return on Investment The ability to have on-demand training saves money in not having to have an in-house trainer. Employees can complete training on their own time (even at home), so if they need more time for a training, they can complete it on their own time. Read full review I think SplashLearn has increased the speed at which my children learn mathematics, and thereby has been a positive ROI. I think SplashLearn has improved my kids' desire to learn mathematics and as such has had a positive ROI. I think SplashLearn has been a negative ROI at times because it shifts attention from learning the core aspects of mathematics to playing games. My kids love to play games, but sometimes it doesn't work to play them all the time in order to learn the material. Read full review ScreenShots
