For ACM Members, the Learning Center offers complimentary access (both desktop and mobile) to thousands of e-learning assets across multiple platforms, including:

  • More than 40,000 online e-books, video courses and conference archives from O’Reilly for ACM Professional Members.

  • More than 6,000 courses, 11,000 e-books, and thousands of “bite-sized” videos from Skillsoft and Books 24x7 for ACM Professional and Student Members.

  • More than 5,000 e-books from Elsevier’s ScienceDirect service, offering DRM-free downloads from publishers like Morgan Kaufmann and Syngress for ACM Professional and Student Members.

Members and non-members alike enjoy access to ACM TechTalks, our popular series of webcasts presented by A.M. Turing and ACM Prize in Computing recipients, ACM Fellows, up-and-coming researchers, and accomplished practitioners.

In addition to many e-learning resources, ACM members are also eligible for special offers: exclusive tuition scholarships from online university partners, discounts on training toward popular vendor certifications, and more.
