About ACM Learning Center

The ACM Learning Center is a major part of ACM’s commitment to the lifelong learning and professional development of computing practitioners. Explore online books, courses, videos, and tutorials from top content publishers; ACM-produced keynote-style talks and deep technical dives on bleeding-edge topics from leading researchers and practitioners; and a variety of special member offers and other resources.

For ACM Professional and Student members, the Learning Center offers complimentary access (both desktop and mobile) to more than 55,000 e-learning assets across multiple platforms, including:

  • 50,000 online e-books, video courses and conference archives from Safari and O’Reilly,

  • More than 1,800 courses, 4,800 e-books, and thousands of “bite-sized” videos from Skillsoft and Books 24x7

  • More than 1,200 e-books from Elsevier’s ScienceDirect service, offering DRM-free downloads from publishers like Morgan Kaufmann and Syngress

Members and non-members alike enjoy access to ACM Learning Webinars, 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.
