Skillsoft Broadens Video-Based Learning Offering with New IT and Desktop Video Content

To further broaden its already wide range of content formats for online learning and performance support, Skillsoft has expanded its video-based learning solutions with IT and Desktop Video collections that cover popular and emerging technology topics. The 3-5 minute performance support videos deliver targeted learning to individuals, allowing them to quickly learn about a wide range of subjects including Android and iOS mobile application development, cloud computing, cybersecurity, virtualization, HTML 5, Windows 8 and Microsoft Office 2013 applications. Many Skillsoft customers are already benefiting from these new IT and Desktop Video collections, which complement Skillsoft’s video-based learning that includes thousands of leadership videos in its Leadership Development Channel™ and 50 Lessons collections. Skillsoft is a pioneer in the field of technology-delivered learning with a long history of innovation and delivering solutions for its customers worldwide, ranging from global enterprises, government, and education to mid-sized and small businesses.

“Busy professionals are demanding rich and easily digested content that allows them to keep pace with constantly evolving technologies,” said Priti Shah, Skillsoft director of product management. “We’re excited to expand our already significant investment in video-based learning content as a component of our comprehensive, continuous learning solution. In combination with our in-depth Books24x7 coverage, interactive elearning courseware, live web-delivered classes and online certification mentoring, this new IT and Desktop video format continues to make Skillsoft a must-have learning resource for IT professionals and business users. We’re thrilled at the level of customer response and positive feedback we’re receiving for this total solution.”

“At UniGroup, our LMS is about putting knowledge in the hands of the people who need it– whenever they need it and wherever they are. The Desktop and IT Video collections help us do exactly that,” said Josh Dix, training and development consultant for UniGroup. “It's a bite-sized but impactful portion that’s perfect for when our people need to develop a skill quickly. Got five minutes to learn how to do a pivot table? Need to brush up on your PowerPoint skills in between meetings? We can do that now. As a learning and development consultant, I love our ability to deploy targeted micro-learning solutions to our associates. As a user, I loved learning how to use Adobe Flash in under 15 minutes!"

These new IT and Desktop Video collections, which will continue to expand significantly in the coming months, are an important addition to Skillsoft’s cloud-based learning solutions. The videos are available at the time of need through Skillport®, Skillsoft’s Learning Management System. Users can collaborate and share feedback on video content through inGenius®, Skillsoft’s social learning platform that allows users to contribute their own knowledge and expertise to subject areas.

“Aberdeen's research has shown that video is a fast-growing segment in the world of learning, and an extremely useful part of best-in-class development practices. Skillsoft’s IT and Desktop Video collections allow individuals to know how to do something they didn't know five minutes ago – the ultimate goal for just-in-time learning,” said Mollie Lombardi, vice president and principal analyst, human capital management for Aberdeen Group. “Access to the breadth of topics such as those offered in Skillsoft’s IT and Desktop Video collections makes it extremely useful to a broad spectrum of organizations.”

One of the biggest challenges with adopting a DevOps mentality is: new applications are easily adapted to cloud-native, microservice-based, or containerized architectures - they can be built for them - but old applications need complex refactoring. On the other hand, these new technologies can require relearning or adapting new, oftentimes more complex, methodologies and tools to be ready for production. In his general session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, Solutions Marketi...
