Product Overview

Skillsoft offers training content and services in areas such as leadership skills, digital skills, IT certifications and compliance training. In this review, we’ll focus on Skillsoft’s content delivery platform, Skillport.

Skillport is a cloud-based learning management system (LMS) that streamlines training content delivery. The intuitive interface is agile enough to adapt to a user’s learning preferences, whether on mobile or desktop devices, and provide content for all types of learning styles. Skillport can support more than 25 spoken languages, and its localization capabilities can support up to 13 site languages.

The LMS can be used on its own or integrated with a company’s existing applications.


Skillport is a learning management portal for users to complete assigned training while exploring additional learning materials. The platform has access to Skillsoft’s catalog of more than 40,000 multimedia content items, including books, videos, courses, learning portals, articles and more.

As a cloud-based solution, Skillport can be accessed anytime, anywhere, so employees can learn at their own pace.

Here are some other key features Skillport offers:

Search & discovery  The Skillport platform offers seven learning administration features: quick links, recently viewed, see what’s new, view learning plan, browse the library, visit community and the to-do list. These options help employees navigate the course catalog and manage their learning materials and deadlines. Users can search through the catalog of materials based on topic, role, function and more.

Learning administration: Employees can launch and organize training courses and content assigned by the company, as well as the content they’ve assigned themselves to complete. A status indicator for each course allows users to easily see the progress of training.

Social learning & collaboration: The community page of the Skillport platform is a social and collaborative tool where users can view and make comments on specific learning materials, recommend content items and follow subject matter experts within their organization.

Learning app: Skillsoft’s learning app gives users access to training materials, wherever they are. The app is available for both Android and iOS devices, and it has all the features of the cloud-based platform.
