Introduction to channels

With Pluralsight, you can organize your learning experience, or your learners' experience, and align it with your company's goals. Combine courses, paths, and even content outside of Pluralsight to create a custom learning journey. 

Learners can watch their progress increase as they complete channel sections, and plan admins and team managers can tap into powerful channels analytics.

By default, all Pluralsight accounts can create a channel and add content to it. 

Professional and Enterprise group plans can add members to channels, set advanced sharing and privacy settings, set objectives for channels, and view analytics. For information, visit these articles: Roles in group channels, adding members to a channel, and channel analytics.


How can channels help me learn?

Channels help you organize the content you want to learn. Where bookmarks help you save individual pieces of content, channels allows you to collect courses, paths, and external content such as reference guides. Some learners create channels around a topic, such as understanding cloud security, or towards a goal, like preparing for a PMP exam.


How can channels help my team learn?

You can skill up your existing team with targeted channels to increase proficiency in certain subjects, such as JavaScript or soft skills. You can also onboard new hires faster by integrating your own company's content. Label these channels with objectives such as Onboarding, Switching technology, or Skilling up, or create your own custom objectives.

Anyone on a group plan can create a channel, and you can add contributors and share a channel company-wide so that your time as a plan admin can be spent on your most important tasks, and you can allow the managing and creation of channels to experts within your team.
