Great Product for Extra Trainings

5,0 3 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: It has solved the issue of having all employees having access to extra training so that they can improve their skills or build new skills. It is also cost efficient since it is not possible to send every employee to outside training's. It also has allowed my employees feel that I am here for them and wanting them to succeed which I do.

Pluspunten:

Skillsoft is a great product with a variety of topics one can learn on. It allows you to build up your skills and resume with the variety of courses one can take. It also has test one must pass to make sure that the material was learned from the course. Upon passing you are given a certificate of completion which is great to store and have on file in case ever asked. Its great that it shows all courses in your profile that you have completed and it allows you to save courses to do at a later date. this allows me to construct my own path of courses I want to take. It also has topics you would have never thought about which is great to learn off of and improve your skills whether you are already in s supervisors/managers position or striving to achieve a new position.

Minpunten:

There is nothing that I dislike about skillsoft it is a pretty awesome tool for an organization.

Skillsoft-Percipio

5,0 3 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Compliance Training is so easy with this Percipio. All new hires that are set up automatically get the required compliance training that is crucial in this day and age.

Pluspunten:

This product has so many options to offer as it relates to training, compliance. A great LMS tool and the customer service is outstanding.

Minpunten:

In the beginning it was a little intimidating learning how to navigate and set up employees. As time has passed, it has definitely gotten much easier to use.

Legacy LMS that was really a Content Portal turned LMS

2,0 5 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: If you have purchased the Skillsoft catalog, and you are getting SkillPort as an addon for no additional cost, then it is fine to use and perhaps less problematic than asking Skillsoft to make their catalog available to another LMS. Otherwise, avoid. There are many other LMS and learning portal options that are better. Many of them for free.

Pluspunten:

Surpringly, the one feature I can vouch for in the system was the ability to update eLearning content without de-registering users or causing them to lose progress in their courseware. I have seen several systems where this is not the case.

Minpunten:

Skillsport seems to be an LMS that was built around the fact Skillsoft offered a large content catalog, and needed to offer tracking, and also had to allow companies to upload their content into that portal because customers wouldn't want an LMS for just Skillsoft and the expense of a second system for their own content. As an admin of the system converting over from an LMS (which they acquired), it was a very clunky system to user as an Admin as well as a user. The UI on the Admin side looked like a Windows 3.1 application (the user side was a bit better, but still dated). The basic setup of any course was overly complex, taking more steps than was truly required. The reporting was extremely weak. There was raw score and pass/fail, but no question-level analytics.

Good platform for technical eLearning, not the best admin functionality

4,0 3 jaar geleden

Pluspunten:

Skillsoft has certainly come a long way since the days of Skillport. Percipio is no doubt a sleeker user experience, and their content has received a much needed refresh. As an admin for eLearning now in several different organizations, I've always leaned more towards Skillsoft as a vendor when it comes to technical content (programming, IT, cert prep, etc.), although their soft skills catalog is also pretty decent.

Minpunten:

As a platform, my main gripes are with the admin side. I've used other eLearning platforms in previous roles, and Skillsoft's admin interface is always the clunkiest. Terminology used is not always intuitive, and user and content management requires too many clicks.

Skillsoft Review

4,0 7 maanden geleden

Opmerkingen: The experience has been great, overall I would recommend it to other outside of our school. I use this training as well myself to keep myself up to date.

Pluspunten:

Having the ease of access that this software provides is very helpful to our student, especially the ones that are making a career change.

Minpunten:

There has been outages, luckily it is not frequently. The issue is that when one thing goes out, after it is fixed the other goes out. For example, once the lab outage was fixed, the videos went into an outage as well. Again, this is not frequent. We have not had an outage in about 2 years.

A great help for professional development

5,0 vorig jaar

Opmerkingen: My experience with Skillsoft has been excellent . New hires attended the initial classroom training and after that they were enrolled in a step-by-step program with Skillsoft. We could monitor progress and identify any problem with enogh time to intervine and help.

Pluspunten:

Skillsoft is the best resources for people who want to keep learning and developing skills for work and personal life. It offers a huge catalog of courses and excellent step-by-step training to achieve certifications, gives the opportunity to build a portfolio and facilitate compliance in many areas of knowledge.

Minpunten:

Everything is adequate and high quality in Skillsoft. Nothing to complain about.

Makes training easier and more accessible to users

4,0 4 weken geleden Nieuw

Opmerkingen: My organization launched a whole professional development program based on the pathways and it was great for developing skills for the workplace.

Pluspunten:

I like that we could complete training asynchronously at our own pace, both at the desk and on the go (via mobile access) and that the learning pathways were a guide to making the most of your coursework by achieving a cohesive learning objective.

Minpunten:

Adding/removing courses was a little tricky, the deadlines were hard to change

One of the best self-paced learning platforms I've used. Great for quick sessions or certifications.

4,0 5 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: This software helped prepare me for some essential business certifications that helped me land a job soon after.

Pluspunten:

This platform is great for improving your business and technology skills. its has a wide variety of courses from the basic such as Time Management to more specialized topics such as CompTIA industry certifications. The courses are structured in a logical progression which does not require new users to need a lot of 'hand holding' to master the concepts. The content delivery system is simple and easy so that users don't need to be tech savvy to start learning. Content is delivered in a mix of formats including video, text, and interactive simulations for some courses. Unlike other some other platforms, the content is broken down down into small time portions so that you can learn one concept when you have a few minutes to spare. This make it easier for persons who can't commit to hours at a time to get started. The platform is accessible on Windows and Mac systems and even mobile devices using Android and iOS. The makes for great anytime/anywhere learning as long as you have an internet connection. Companies can have their own branded home page and customise what content they want available to team members. There is also a set of Skillport apps that allow for offline viewing of courses. Team members can share recommendations and motivate each other to learn through the Skillport community.

Minpunten:

For a platform so well established the app could be better. While it does allow you to log into your account and search for courses, it doesn't have the other bells and whistles that make the web learning platform so advanced. For example you can pick up where you left off in a course you started on the web but you have to search for the course from the full set. The app doesn't seem to sync history with the web version. There's also no sign of the transcript section in the app which shows you all the courses you did before. Hopefully there are planned improvements.

20+ years of data packed into a robust reporting system

4,0 5 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: The ability to track completion of required courses to a global employee population.

Pluspunten:

The reports we pull out of Skillport are amazing. You can dive down to the deepest level of information and extract exactly what you are looking for. The organization of courses and users was spot on. We have over 15,000 users and are able to track their progress in the system accurately.

Minpunten:

The system seems a bit cumbersome at times - uploading new content, pulling data that has been archived. We can't remove particular courses as they will delete the history that goes with them. The history needs to stay. The class information needs to stay, but the course needs to go away. The occasional users have a hard time finding a particular course to take. We require each employee to take 6 courses upon hire. At times we have to register them for the courses because they cannot find the one they are looking for.

Decent Content

4,0 4 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Customer service was always very helpful and attentive when an issue arose. The system reporting was a little clunky and required a lot of v-look-ups of separate reports to get all the information we wanted in one, comprehensive report for our business units. Ended up going elsewhere where we could get more course selection and content for our money with more language options already existing.

Pluspunten:

If you purchase their content you receive their host platform for free which was nice, however we switched content providers that had some newer content, and more content for the price.

Minpunten:

Not a lot of language options currently although they're working on adding more. Most of the courses are pretty outdated but they've been working to upgrade them. Not a lot of content for the amount of money you pay.

One of the best e-learning platforms

5,0 3 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Necessary skills are being learnt and these are being used by my staff for personal development.

Pluspunten:

User friendly. One can log in using any smart device. Can store passwords and can also easily re-set user details just in case one has forgotten. I love the variety of courses offered, but also that you can pause an ongoing course then resume later. The sound and images are usually clear,like one is watching a movie. Illustrations are very catchy that you can't easily get bored. I love the fact that certificates are generated after course completion, these can easily be downloaded in color and added to ones education qualifications.

Minpunten:

This platform works very well for me, i have never experienced any negatives in my environment.

I have utilized Skillport and Skillsoft eLearning content for years and it has never let me down.

5,0 5 jaar geleden

Pluspunten:

The software is easy to use, understand and consistently quality checked. Their eLearning courses help us check a lot of regulatory boxes.

Minpunten:

Pricing structure for the content itself is a bit robust with different courses falling under different categories and it often gets confusing but the support teams and account managers do a decent job of assisting.

Community Health Center's Take on Skillsoft as an Excellent Content/LMS Resource

5,0 vorig jaar

Opmerkingen: We were incredibly happy with Skillsoft for our leadership content. The support we had with our customer success manager is the best, and she was instrumental in helping us launch and promote the resources. The cost was a little high, and so when we needed to expand learning access to more staff, we ended up going with a different vendor because of that reason.

Pluspunten:

The production was incredibly professional, the presenters are the best in class, and the service from all Skillsoft staff is unmatched.

Minpunten:

Our teams preferred learning content that felt was more relatable to our office setting. The sophisticated production that Skillsoft had made it feel very corporate, which doesn't align with our company culture.

Excellent learning software

5,0 5 jaar geleden

Pluspunten:

I have used this while working with Ericsson and I found it to be an encyclopaedia for learning programs. It's got everything. From the most basic to the most complicated. A must try

Minpunten:

The software takes time to load. It's kind of heavy and plus the UI could be much better. Some of the learning programs take a lot of time to load.

5,0 5 jaar geleden

Pluspunten:

Skillsoft by Skillsoft is easily integrated with existing HRIS sysrems. The number of available resources observations the Skillsoft library is unbelievable.

Minpunten:

There are a few missing critical features in the basic Skillport LMS. The primary missing feature is the lack of manager tracking dashboards outside of the reporting tool.

Pluspunten:

SkillPort by Skillsoft is a wonderful third-party vendor that offers a wide selection of training to complement our in-house built eLearning training.
