Last year, during quarantine, Pluralsight opened their entire library of courses to the entire world. I was anxiously waiting to hear whether they would do it again this year and was delighted to see that this morning, April 1 (this is not an April Fools joke!) they did it again!
Over 8,000 Pluralsight Courses
I want to share some ideas on how you can best take advantage of this. First, go sign up. No credit card required (THANK YOU PLURALSIGHT!). That means you don’t have to worry about getting billed next month, or having to cancel anything. Just get your account and get free access.
This can be a bit overwhelming, I know. Who is going to watch 8,000 courses in a lifetime? Nobody. Who is going to watch 80 courses (1% of the library) this month? Probably NO ONE.
Don’t let this be a Netflix moment, where you spend hours scrolling through the entire library and not figuring out what you should watch. Instead, make a plan, make a list, and then schedule time each day to watch a course.
30 Days of Soft Skills Courses (an email reminder)
I just created a new 30 day email drip series. Sign up below and I’ll send you a VERY SHORT email with a course suggestion every day.
In addition to my own soft skill courses, there are plenty of other amazing courses. You can pick topics, like project management or product management, leadership or management, communication or teams, and use the search box to find relevant courses.
Or, you could look through the cultivated learning paths, like these:
While it’s true that Pluralsight was designed for developers, and goes very deep into most aspects of technology, there are plenty of non-techie courses. I have 36 of them here.
Figure out your topic.
Then make a list of courses to watch.
Schedule time on your calendar… and take full advantage of a free and open library during the month of April!
