Are you detecting a theme? Success is all about making learning accessible whenever and wherever it will prove valuable. At Skillsoft, we’re committed to integrating learning into the very fabric of your team’s work.

This week we released two exciting new capabilities aimed at this goal.

Our newly-launched Skillsoft Percipio app for Microsoft Teams brings our powerful learning experience platform directly into the corporate learning platform, Microsoft Teams. Our customers can restore the sense of community that empowers learners to build, share, and apply knowledge together in an exciting new way.

Skillsoft’s June acquisition of Global Knowledge brought to the market the broadest and deepest technology and development developer offering in the digital learning space. Learners can now benefit from combined self-paced micro-learning with live instructor-led training in a single solution. Customers can now access a combined offering of nearly 28,000 contact hours of instruction, including a blend of virtual and on-demand courses, instructor-led training, hands-on labs, and real-world challenges, and coverage across more than 170 technical certifications.

The Skillsoft technology and developer library include both vendor-authorized and expert-validated content across six key areas: cloud, cybersecurity, software craft, programming, data, and IT infrastructure.

Additionally, Skillsoft provides personalized coaching through the acquisition of Pluma, adding a new modality to Skillsoft’s blended learning model.

Your feedback is invaluable. We encourage you to schedule a demo and let us know what you think.
