Learner releases

Search results

Now you can filter search results by content, skill level, and time frame. This makes it easier than ever to find content aligned with your skilling-up goals.


Learners on an Enterprise plan can now sort through topics in your organization using the simplified topic bar. This helps you easily jump to a specific topic of questions.

Pluralsight Google Chrome extension

Now you can search for Skills content in your moment of need, without having to first visit the platform. You can search straight from the extension as well as from Stack Overflow or Google searches.

Skill assessments

Once you've completed 60% or more of a level of a path, a path-based skill assessment retake unlocks. This used to be an instant unlock, but now there’s a 72-hour waiting period after your most recent attempt at that  skill assessment. Why? This ensures you've retained the information you learned, rather than learning "to the test".

ITIL® and PRINCE2® certifications

You can now take Skills courses to prepare for—and count toward—certification with ITIL®, PRINCE2®, and PRINCE2 Agile®. See the following for more information:
