Pros and Cons

  • I really like their library of leadership videos where leaders share their best practices. They're short and easy to use in a variety of settings (e.g. trainings, business meetings, etc.).
  • I find Skillsoft to have strong customer service. They do a very good job of listening to your needs and advising a variety of solutions within the given parameters.
  • N/A. I was quite happy with them as a provider.

"Management Made Easy" by Skillsoft

Score 7 out of 10
Vetted Review

Pros and Cons

  • The platform provides an extensive amount of learning material that our customers can take advantage of such as books, courses and practice exams.
  • The Skillsoft platform can be used on your desktop, laptop and tablet formats which make it accessible at anytime.
  • The magnitude and detail of the reporting that Skillsoft provides is great. I have yet to come across a scenario where the information i sought was not available.
  • From an Administrative standpoint, assigning anything within the platform is extremely simple and does not require any prior knowledge to use.
  • 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.

Skillsoft the best of the best and heads above the rest

Score 10 out of 10

Pros and Cons

  • Best instructional design process in the world thanks to the vision of Sally Hovis.
  • Best thought leaders in the world in their respective fields contracted to handle the courses thanks to Lee Ritze
  • Best Learning Management System in multiple languages
  • Ability to customize your content and even put your logo in your training content
  • Wide range of product categories to choose from
  • Ability to get college credit, CEUs and certifications from leading organizations when taking certain training programs
  • I wish they could figure out how to use their older method of process simulation while keeping the flexibility of the mobile device size - it is not something they are doing incorrectly it is just the size of the icons get too small.
  • Sometimes their learning path seems tedious to the normal student, but as an instructional design professional I understand why they need to teach the way they teach.

Dynamic Duo of a Support Team

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review

Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Customer service/Account representation
  • Provides useful information in the bi-yearly account reviews
  • Updates to courses/content
  • They are getting better, but keeping up with the IT times and keeping their site modern and user friendly
  • Compliance - we had 2 seperate interfaces between the compliance part (Academy) and the Business Courseware catelog and our custom content - this created a lot of confusion around what was what. Support and the usablility of Academy was not up to par with what we were used to with the normal SkillPort.
  • Technical support doesn't always have the answer

Skillsoft is Fundamental to your Enterprise Learning Strategy

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review

Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • 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.
  • Some of the courses are too long - (eg. 4 hours) - however, a learner has the option to only access 1 or more sections making it easier to consume.
  • Some of the courses are outdated and boring. Skillsoft has gradually been updating these courses - but there is still room for improvement.
  • Courses provide a good foundation for learning - but Skillsoft needs to do more to attract millenials with their courseware.
  • Change their contracting to provide pricing more in line with what is needed in developing countries / third world nations.

Soft Skills 24x7

Score 9 out of 10

Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Skillsoft regularly updates its knowledge center with up to date courses and retires outdated materials.
  • Skillsoft has a dedicated representative to help resolve technical issues and create a client community to help clients with customized needs.
  • As it has 24x7 access our users can use the tool any time they have free time and learn as much as they can and save the progress.
  • I would love to see SkillSoft have live sessions. For example, user and instructor can have discussions through Skype or other online tools.
  • Some of the courses may take too long to complete. Suggest to split the course to several one or simplify the content.
