Pluralsight Skills complements the platform’s extensive library of on-demand video content from the world’s top tech teachers with hands-on learning skills in challenging technology skills such as cybersecurity, IT operations, and software development. Hands-on learning is a critical component of any effective skills development platform and strategy. The preservation and application of knowledge from practical learning experiences is dramatically improved compared to alternative learning modalities, and the combination of practical and on-demand skills development techniques gives companies the tools they need to develop technology skills effectively on a large scale.
“The most successful business organizations take a structured approach to skills development that includes a combination of practical, on-demand and teacher-led training, live or virtual. This expansion of hands-on learning opportunities enables our customers to more effectively develop their technical talents on a large scale and ensure that they have the necessary expertise to complete their most pressing technology projects effectively and cost-effectively, “said Gary Eimerman, GM of Skills, Pluralsight.
As companies work to address new technological advances and ways of working after the 2020 pandemic outbreak, skill gaps have widened in critical technology areas such as cloud computing, data, cybersecurity, AI, and machine learning. In Pluralsight’s latest education progress report, technology experts said their confidence in their current jobs being done (–13%) and their ability to do their jobs over the next three years (–8%) compared to last year have decreased.
With the introduction of these new labs, Pluralsight Skills now offers more than 900 laboratory-based hands-on learning experiences for technologists who want to fill skill gaps and stay one step ahead of today’s rapidly changing technology. These hands-on learning opportunities include:
- 772 labs for cloud computing
- 21 labs for software development
- 63 cybersecurity laboratories
- 44 labs for IT operations
A clearer path for certification
In addition to expanding the practical learning experience, Pluralsight is introducing a new technology certification landscape within Pluralsight Skills, the so-called Certification Prep Center. This new experience enables learners to browse more than 130 certification preparation paths offered in Pluralsight Skills and receive clear, step-by-step guidance on how to develop the skills necessary to pass the certification exams.
