Skillsoft Learning Program Highlights:

ACM E-Learning Catalog

ACM’s new Skillsoft Learning Collections offer learners access to courses covering a variety of top skill sets and in-demand vendor certifications. The new Skillsoft Collections are periodically updated for currency.

In-Course Features
Course features include task-based software simulations and guided task exercises enabling ACM members to learn their chosen skill areas by performing real-world tasks. Guided task exercises help you learn incrementally. Printable course scripts help learners track their progress and record achievement..

Many of Skillsoft’s certification-track courses offer support from a community of professional mentors. This service includes real-time chat and email interaction. 24/7 mentoring is available for some certification-aligned tracks.

The SkillSoft Course Manager (SCM) allows you to take your training offline so you can access content even without a live Internet connection.

Chrome users: As of Chrome v42, which was released on April 15, 2015, Google has disabled Java support (but support can be re-enabled). When a Chrome v42 user visits any web page (not just Skillsoft) that requires Java, Chrome will now silently block the request. This means that there will be no no error message or warning. See for more info and troubleshooting in the unlikely event you encounter a problem.
