Chapter 3—Organize content for learners

Tags: Skills

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 to help your teams meet your strategic goals. Chapter 3 shows you how to do this.

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.


Show your team how to use Skills

In Chapter 2, you sent an email announcing Pluralsight Skills to your team. Your team redeemed their licenses and they're part of teams. Now, let’s go a step further.

You can introduce your team to the Skills platform with the Getting started: Skills learner guide. This two-part series teaches your team how to start with Skills and how to make skilling up a weekly habit.

You can also share the short, learner-focused video below with your team. This video goes over some high-level experiences such as assessing their skills, starting down a path, creating custom channels, and more.

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.

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 Skills security courses. 

Pluralsight channels index page

Skills gives you the ability to create lists of content—both within Skills and externally—and share those lists with groups or all team members. Then you can 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 Skills video courses, projects, and interactive courses to create a curated journey for your learners.
  • Use external links 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, or skilling up.
  • Leverage subject matter experts on your team by adding 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.
  • Check your learners’ progress toward reaching your objectives with channel analytics.

Design custom Role IQs (enterprise only)

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 the channels you created are getting used? That your strategic goals are being met? How will you identify your top learners? Let's explore that in Chapter 4.
