Pluralsight Web-Based Training

Learn about UC San Diego access to the technology learning platform Pluralsight, including CodeSchool.

Pluralsight logoInformation Technology employees at UC San Diego have acces to the most relevant and in-depth online training taught by industry experts in software development, IT ops, data, security and more thanks to the partnership between IT Services, Health Information Services and Pluralsight.

Pluralsight (with CodeSchool) is a technology learning platform with over 6,000 expert-authored courses, skill tests, learning paths and more. Pluralsight’s platform provides you with tools to keep your skills up-to-date, apply new knowledge to your projects and innovate with the latest technologies.

Your manager can add you to their team and build training channels, a group of courses and/or paths organized in a specific order. Paths are curated classes intended to guide you through training. This is a great opportunity for each of us to elevate our skills to the next level.

Get started

  • Sign in to Pluralsight with your UC San Diego Active Directory credentials, or
  • Accept an email invite from a Team Manager:
    • If you are entirely new to Pluralsight, select the “Create a new account” box.
    • If you previously had an account with Pluralsight (through a free trial or as an individual subscriber), select “Already have an account?” and log in with your existing credentials.
  • CodeSchool can be accessed at the bottom of the left-hand navigation.

How Pluralsight works

  • Measure your skill: Uncover knowledge gaps with an in-Path assessment that gauges your skill level in as little as 20 questions.
  • Start at the right spot: Based on your skill test results, you’ll jump into a spot in the path that allows you to start learning where you need to and skip what you already know.
  • Master a brand new skill: Gain a foundational understanding of programming languages and frameworks you haven’t experienced with Code School’s interactive, hands-on labs.
  • Customize your learning: Organize courses and content unique to your role or specific projects using channels. Share your channels with team members, or follow expert-crafted channels by others.
  • Learn what matters: With new courses added daily, there’s no limit to what you can learn.
