Read the following description and decide for yourself:

Addressing worldwide customer demands for a more visual and flexible presentation of learning content to improve workforce productivity, SkillSoft today introduced SkillPort 8®, a revolutionary cloud-based learning experience that contextually organizes relevant and aligned learning around the user instead of the traditional course-catalog approach of other Learning Management Systems (LMSs).

SkillPort 8 quickly pinpoints targeted content that connects formal, informal, social and mobile learning—when, where and how people want to learn. It also transforms web-based learning from a solitary event to a richer, continuous community-oriented experience that has strong cross-generational appeal and can be integrated with Talent Management Systems, intranets and portals. 

SkillPort 8 features an innovative user interface that gives the learner a unified experience with all their learning content in a friendly, intuitive and highly visual format that is easily accessible from anywhere and from any web-enabled device. Filters and tools to refine search results make it easier than ever for learners to find the information they need.

Learners also have more opportunities to collaborate with others across their organization through social features like commenting, ratings and recommendations that are embedded throughout SkillPort.
