MIT has an agreement with Skillsoft to provide web-based training on IT professional technical skills needed by systems developers and administrators, and others. In addition, Skillsoft also provides training on a wide range of business, management, and leadership topics as well as many other workplace interactive skills. Books 24x7 may also be accessed through Skillsoft.
Skillsoft is available for unlimited use by MIT faculty, staff, and students with active kerberos accounts and MIT IDs.
From the My Training tab in Atlas, open the Learning Center to access the Skillsoft portal. You will be directed to authenticate through Touchstone with your personal certificate, or you can choose to log in with your Kerberos username and password. Complete instructions are available in the Knowledge Base.
You will need to enable pop-ups in your browser, and may need to install or upgrade Java.
Before upgrading Java: If you have a local IT provider, we strongly recommend checking with them before installing or upgrading Java. Users who do not have local IT support and have questions about access to web-based training should contact the Service Desk (617-253-1101).
