Chapter 3: Organize content for learners
Pluralsight Skills can fit into the goals you defined in Chapter 1, without you needing to spend extra time organizing or choosing content -- the platform can do the heavy lifting for you. If you like, you can add adjacent content.
Tip: If you’ve identified goals for your team, but don’t know which skills or roles you need to get there, Pluralsight's skills strategy planning service will help guide the way. For more details, take a look at our Skills Strategy Plan whitepaper.

This short, learner-focused video below goes over some high-level experiences such as assessing their skills, starting down a path, creating custom channels, and more. We recommend sharing the video course with all learners on your team.

Get familiar with Pluralsight's content types
Pluralsight Skills offers thousands of expert-led video courses on cloud computing, machine learning & AI, cyber security, and development. We've built our video player to have developer-friendly learning resources as well as transcripts and closed captioning for many courses, exercise files, and discussion boards.
Pluralsight Skills isn't just a library of video courses, though. Interactive courses and projects bring a hands-on element to learning that brings new life and greater interaction to closing skills gaps.

How to use Interactive courses (learner course clip)
Let our platform create a skill development plan for your team
You don't have to organize all the content for your team members. Pluralsight's machine learning algorithm and expert-organized content library can create tailored skill development plans for each individual.
Start with a skill assessment and a personalized skill analysis
Tailor your team's skill development plan with curated content
While our individualized and expert-organized content can create a personalized skill development plan for each of your team members -- there are also things you may need to share with all team members.
For example, you may want your team to know about your organization's best practices, or must-watch Pluralsight Skills security courses.
Pluralsight Skills gives you the ability to create lists of content both within Pluralsight Skills and externally, and share those lists with groups or all team members -- as well as see your team members' progress in completing the content. You can do all these things with channels.
Curate content with channels
- Create a channel and add Pluralsight Skills video courses, projects, and interactive courses to create a curated journey for your learners. Here's how.
- External links are an excellent way to pull in team reference guides, best practices, or assets stored on your organization’s website or cloud storage.
- Set an objective for your channel such as Onboarding, Switching technology, and Skilling up.
- Have subject matter experts on your team? Add them as channel contributors so they can choose content to add to your channel.
- Explore the different ways to share channels with people: adding members and teams, and sharing them company-wide.
- You can check your learners’ progress toward reaching your objectives with channel analytics.
How to design custom Role IQs (enterprise only)
Pluralsight Skills and our partners have designed dozens of role IQs -- as an Enterprise plan admin, you can design your own role IQs custom to your organization's needs.
Great, you've got tailored content set up for your learners. But how will you know that your channels you created are getting used? How will you identify your top learners?
