SkillSoft to extend mentoring services to third-party Learning Management Systems

SkillSoft is making its mentoring services toolkit available through a number of third-party learning management systems. The services are designed to provide additional support for learners undertaking Project management and IT certifications. Previously, mentoring services were available only to customers using SkillPort, SkillSoft's learning management platform.

The company's mentoring services are provided by a team of SkillSoft employees who the company report collectively hold more than 1,000 certifications and accreditations. They offer a range of services including 24x7 on-line chats, study aids and test preparations.

"According to our clients, the team has helped thousands of professionals successfully and efficiently complete certification processes," said Lee Ritze, SkillSoft's senior vice president of marketing and corporate development. "The mentoring toolkit for third-party LMSs now makes these proven collaboration and support services available to a much wider audience of learners."

SkillSoft say they have completed preliminary testing of the mentoring toolkit on product offerings from charter members of SAIL, the SkillSoft Alliance for Integrated Learning, and that their interoperability lab is now in the process of final integration verification on these LMS systems. SAIL members include Oracle, Pathlore, Plateau, Saba, SumTotal Systems, and THINQ.

Examples of supported certifications include: Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE), Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer (MCSD), Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS), CompTIA A+, CompTIA Security +, Oracle Certified Professional (OCP), Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP), and Project Management Professional (PMP).

The mentoring toolkit is available for a standard annual license fee. Mentoring services can be accessed for no additional costs by licensed learners of SkillSoft's IT and project management course collections. For more information visit:
