BOSTON—August 10, 2020—O’Reilly, the premier source for insight-driven learning on technology and business, today announced that the company has been named to Training Industry’s Top 20™ Online Learning Library Companies List for the third consecutive year. Training Industry, a leading research and information resource for corporate learning leaders, prepares its Top 20 List to inform professionals of online learning library providers that offer the strongest and most diverse set of services and offerings.
O’Reilly was recognized for offering one of the world’s largest selections of content in business and technology today. O’Reilly’s online learning platform provides 2.5 million users with 45,000+ titles, 30,000+ hours of video, and hundreds of live online training courses on over 1,000 topics. Each year, the company adds thousands of new titles and learning resources in a variety of formats including live online training courses, learning paths, case studies, certification guides, books, and videos—guaranteeing a breadth and depth of learning content to 66 percent of Fortune 100 companies.
“As the pace of technological change continues to accelerate, the most important thing businesses can do is to continue to follow the trends on new technologies and provide their teams with the tools necessary to build skills and learn new technologies as they come to market,” said Laura Baldwin, president at O’Reilly Media. “Our purpose at O’Reilly is to ensure businesses and technologists get access to the learning content, training, and expert resources they need to continue to learn and innovate. We’re extremely proud to be a trusted partner to the thousands of organizations who rely on us to share the knowledge and teach the skills people need to stay ahead in an ever-changing economy.”
This year, O’Reilly introduced the following improvements to its online learning platform:
- With the acquisition of Katacoda, interactive learning environments and sandboxes enable users to learn new technologies hands-on in real environments with actual production tools. Users progress through guided, contextual steps running next to a live coding environment.
- Certification Guides help learners prepare for exams with content created by official certification vendor partners—including self-paced books, instructor-led videos and interactive practice tests.
