SkillChoice Complete by Skillsoft
We strongly recommend that you finish what you've started by Sunday, 24 February 2019, in case it is removed from the library.
Throughout the year we work with our partners at Skillsoft to review the 67,000+ resources available on the SkillChoice Complete online learning portal. Our goal is to maintain an updated portal that has the most current content and to remove content that is outdated, has been updated with a newer version, or is no longer supported by the Skillsoft Technical Support Team.
Nearly 1100 resources were marked to be "retired." More than 700 resources that have not been accessed in the past 6 months have already been removed from the online learning library. The remaining 350+ resources will remain available in the online portal until they are removed on Monday, 25 February 2019.
Again, we encourage you to finish what you've started by Sunday, 24 February 2019, in case it is removed from the library.

Mobile App Access Now Available
Download the App Today and Learn on the Go!
IEEE Computer Society Preferred Plus, Training & Development, and Student members can now access SkillChoice Complete using the Skillsoft mobile app. Download the app today to ensure you have 24x7 access no matter where you go.
SkillChoice Desktop and Skillchoice Mobile vary slightly. The directory of folders normally seen on the main and side navigation is not included in the mobile version. When logging in the first time, it is recommended that you set interest areas as prompted. Use app search as the primary way to navigate. Filter your resources, by audio books, books, challenge/impact series, courses, summaries, & videos, or on all content to include them all.
The mobile version allows for most, but not all of the content. The app does include: all books, most of the videos and courses.
Below are the download instructions that include the specific URL to the IEEE Computer Society online learning portal to gain access.
Step 1: Go to the Apple Store or Google Play on your mobile device and search Skillsoft. Download “Skillsoft Learning App” not the Skillsoft Event app.
Step 2: Once downloaded, open the app. It will prompt you to enter the first part of the portal URL. Type “ieee” and hit “Next”.
Step 3: When promoted enter your Computer Society ID and password. Then click “Log In”.
Step 4: Next select your 3 interest areas. Unfortunately, you cannot bypass this, so please either choose from the initial selection you see on the screen, or click the “View More” button, or use the search bar at the top to find your interest areas. Note: You can always change interest areas by going into the settings of the app.
Step 5: Once interest areas are selected the app will be ready to use.
