We will finally be moving from Skillport version 7 to Skillport version 8 this summer. While there had been hope of doing the migration from Skillport version 7 to version 8 last summer, it was advised that we hold off and allow others to work out the beta bugs. To great relief of EditU managers and Administrator, one of the most exciting features of Skillport version 8, is that it will do away with the use of Java.  This should eliminate some of the issues faced administrators and new users who experience access problems. If you are your organizations Skillsoft Administrator this should be a must attend training. Other new features include: Mobile devises access to Skillport training resources.  What’s New pages allow local training administrator to  have special landing pages for each of their sub training groups.
