Pluralsight is giving free, unlimited access to its entire library of more than 7,000 video courses for the entire month of April. The offer is open to new users who have to sign up but don't need to provide credit card details.
Explaing why his company is making this offer, CEO Aaron Skonnard said:
“In these uncertain times where government leaders and healthcare experts are asking us to practice social distancing, Pluralsight wants to offer an incentive for technology learners to follow that advice and better themselves. With this free offering, we want to encourage technology enthusiasts to stay home and improve their skills. Technology can help us build a better tomorrow when we’re able to return to normal, and we want to provide as many people as possible with the opportunity to stay safe, stay home, and skill up.”
Pluralsight’s library of over 7,000 courses cover the most relevant aspects of technology, including cloud computing, big data, artificial intelligence and machine learning and software development in dozens of programming languages - you may remember that in 2015 Pluralsight acquired Code School and all its courses. Its platform not only provides courses but also skill assessment and learning paths for individuals.
Courses are authored and taught by recognized experts in their respective fields. They are thoroughly vetted in a process that, according to Pluralsight is more selective than the world’s most elite educational institutions. Its instructors include:
Pluralsight’s free offering of access to its entire skills platform for the month of April extends to individual learners that have not yet subscribed to the platform. No credit card information or future obligation is required, but those who want to continue beyond the free period a monthly subscription is $29, or $299 for an annual subscription.
Pluralsight is also expanding its trial periods for workforce teams of ten or less from 2 weeks to 30 days and providing 30 day trials of Pluralsight One, its initiative in partnership with Code.org to increase access to computer science education with a particular focus on expanding opportunities for girls and underrepresented minorities around the world, for non-profit teams of ten or less.
In addition the company has made all of its on demand conference content (19 conferences) free until July 1st.
