What can I do with video courses?

Pluralsight Skills organizes courses into paths. You can use channels and bookmarks to organize your courses. When you complete a course, you'll get a certificate of completion.

There's no limit to how much you can view with a paid subscription. See Apps and offline viewing to find out the maximum number of courses you can download for offline viewing.

Individual trial users are subject to a 200-minute maximum during the trial, but that's removed when you purchase a subscription.

From a video course's page

  • Watch the course (this opens in a new tab).
  • Bookmark the course or add the course to a channel.
  • View the course's transcript (see below).
  • Download exercise files to follow along with the author.
  • Participate in discussion boards.
  • Take an author-written learning check.
  • View recommended courses you might also enjoy.

Tip: If you have questions specifically about the video player, such as questions about closed captioning, video speed, and video troubleshooting steps, please visit our video player section.

How current is our content?

To see how recently we published a course, check for the Released date in the course details right sidebar.

course details released date

Pluralsight authors regularly review our courses to make sure we’re delivering you the most up-to-date content possible. If an author makes changes to a course after we first published it, you’ll see an Updated date instead of a Released date. 

course details updated date

If an author reviews a course and determines that the content is still fresh and doesn’t need changes, you’ll also see a Reviewed date below the Released/Updated date field.

Within a course, look for the Transcript section in the navigation bar.
