Please be advised that some Skillsoft customers have recently reported encountering "Application Blocked by Security Settings" warning messages when attempting to access Skillsoft products. Skillsoft Support has determined these warnings are due to an update to the Java installation by Oracle. To resolve this issue, and restore access to your Skillsoft training, it is recommended that you update to the latest Java release (currently 1.7.0_25).


SkillSoft Courses and Resources

How to Get Started

The online courses and related resources from Skillsoft offer a rich array of content to support the learning needs of professionals working in the fields of computing and IT. The 16 Knowledge Centers are organized by asset type to help you find the resources you need and include:

Selected Books – to access specific Books24x7 titles, click on View All Selected Books to see the titles for the particular KnowledgeCenter. You can also click on the Books24x7 link from the home page, located in the upper right-hand corner, where you can browse titles by topic or search for a book.

Roadmaps – access courses through Learning Roadmaps, which are organized in a way that makes it easy for you to locate and use the most appropriate courses for your needs.

Featured topic spotlights – refreshed regularly, to provide an in-depth focus on particular topical areas

Unlike the online courses provided through Element K, there is not a "catalog" from which to select available courses. To enrich your experience and view all available resources, use the Search for box on the Skillsoft home page by simply entering a topic or key word/phrase. Search by All content, or select a specific category from the drop-down menu in the Category box.

For example, if you enter "Cloud Computing," your search will give you Books, Courses, Skill Briefs, and Job Aids related to this particular topic. The Search function allows you to use complex search expressions, and results are ranked by relevancy so you can quickly find what you need.

For a more structured plan of learning, use the individual KnowledgeCenters. Each KnowledgeCenter contains comprehensive resources and tools to enhance your learning experience. Practice Labs and Learning Roadmaps are located on most KnowledgeCenters to help guide your way through certification programs. In addition, Learning Sparks help you find immediate solutions to challenging problems.
