Overall Satisfaction with Pluralsight

PluralSight is being used only by the IT organization in my company which now has more than 100 employees. This tool was implemented to allow users to get general and specific training to help them learn their current jobs and the ability to learn new things with the intention to move into other positions that are more skilled. Currently, this seems to be working well because they have a large range of topics and usually have what you are looking for.
  • Video training with lecture and examples
  • Large range of topics
  • Available over the web
  • No lab environment
  • Some subjects need updating
  • Programs can be very long and intense
  • Prepared training that the company did not have to make
  • Saved cost sending people to training and classes
  • overall low usage by employees
Lynda is a very similar experience. Used it for a very short time and it was tied to classes at a university that I was taking. I think overall it would be very comparable. We only watched small segments that the instructors of the class found to be relevant. It was also great being the class was online in this case.
MS SharePoint, AirWatch, Skype for Business (formerly Lync), Cisco Unified Communications Manager (Call Manager), Microsoft Office 365, ServiceNow
The system is well suited when you want to learn something very specific and aligned with other similar training courses. It is also great because you can make learning paths for employees to have them learn things you think they may need. We also use this for security training. The only downfall is that sometimes things may be a little out of date and the length of some training programs. It is a lot of information thrown at you and not really any knowledge checks or labs to make things really sink in for the trainee.
