Skillsoft Leadership Development Program

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.

Udemy for Business

Udemy for Business is a perfect solution for lower-cost training that enables your team to learn and explore new skills without having to pay the literal $10's of thousands of dollars to engage an external trainer for remote or in-person training.However, Udemy is not as good for situations where your reports may feel that they will have lots of questions to be answered. Udemy for Business's responsiveness to questions is good, but can never be as good as real-time questions and feedback.

Pros

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

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.

  • The lectures are sometimes great, but it is also sometimes hard to stay engaged.
  • The grouping of categories could be refined.

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 support of the person that made the courses varies some are fast others are very slow to get any feedback or help. A knowledge base could be helpful. I haven tried to contact Udemy for Business for platform support reasons. The web platform overall seems to be stable and the same across all devices.

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

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

Udemy is used for different profiles. There are some specific skills that some people need to learn that other platforms don’t offer. On the other hand, this platform is sometimes cheaper than others.
