Free content access
If you have a Skills account, you now have access to free content on A Cloud Guru, including:
To explore your free ACG content, log into Skills and use the app-switcher in the top right navigation to switch to ACG.
Likewise, if you’re an A Cloud Guru user, you now have access to free content on Skills, which you can access by logging into your ACG account and using the app switcher in the top right navigation to switch to Pluralsight. See what you can access with a free Skills account.
Cloud recommendations and integrated continue learning
To make it even easier to find free cloud content, we’ve added a new Recommended courses in Cloud carousel to the Skills home screen. Skills users can click any of the recommended courses to switch over to ACG and start learning.
Once you’ve started one or more ACG courses, you’ll see them appear in your Continue learning carousel alongside any Skills courses you’re taking, making it easy to pick up right where you left off.
Improved ACG dashboard recommendations
ACG learners are getting an upgraded Recommended for you dashboard widget to replace the former static one.
This new feature leverages Skills machine learning to tailor content recommendations to each learner’s specific cloud journey —creating a more dynamic and personalized experience.
Hands-on cloud labs for Skills
Skills learners with the labs add-on SKU will soon have access to some ACG hands-on cloud labs at no additional cost.
Once a learner clicks on an ACG lab, they’ll be automatically redirected to the ACG platform to complete their lab. Skills learners won’t need an ACG license to access these labs and they’ll maintain access to them for the duration of their plan subscription. Learn more about ACG labs for Skills.
Skills learners now have access to ACG’s Community forums (opens in new tab). Forums are a public resource to ask peers and experts questions about cloud course content and get help with your cloud learning.
