Element K/Skillsoft provides web-based training on technical skills needed by systems developers and administrators. Element K is currently available at no charge to IS&T staff and IT Partners only. Other members of the MIT community should use lynda.mit.edu for courses in desktop software.
- You must be a member of IS&T or IT Partners to use an Element K license.
- For the most recent recommendations for minimum hardware and software requirements, see the Element K System Requirements.
Can I expect on-campus support for all products for which Element K offers a course?
No. Some of the courses are taught on IS&T supported software, others are not. It will be only for those supported products that you can receive help from the IS&T Help Desk. Other courses are offered to allow the MIT community to learn about other products that they might wish to use. We do not recommend, nor support, the use of those products in the MIT environment.
Where can I expect to get support for using the Element K product?
If you have a problem either using the Element K site or with a course, you should first go to the Element K Support Options page. If it is more technical, connect directly to the Element K technical support page. At this time, the IS&T Help Desk is not assisting users of the Element K website.
For help with web-based training courses in Element K, see the Element K technical support page. They offer an online chat, or you can call them at 1-800-250-5013. Contact us if you can't find a solution.
