My organization is looking into different online training companies and I was wondering what everyone has had the best experience with? We would like the company to provide training for Cisco certifications (videos and virtual labs), Security, Microsoft, VMWare and Adobe. These are the ones I know of:
  • CBT Nuggets
  • Cisco E-Learning
  • Lynda
  • Stormwinds
  • Knowledgenet
  • Global Knowledge
  • Boson
  • Skillsoft
  • INE
  • Learning Tree International
  • Microsoft Virtual Academy
  • IT University Online
  • Pluralsight
  • QuickCert
  • TestOut
Does anyone know of other companies or can share their experience with any?

    I'm just running through the ones I know.

    IT pro TV
    I really like IT pro TV
    Quick customer service, virtual labs, you can see the hosts talk during the videos( no slides), and transcender tests are included in the subscription.
    Also, you can put in for course requests and do Q and A with the hosts. IT pro tv is from Florida.

    CBT Nuggets
    CBT nuggets is pretty good, I like their news Windows Server MCSA lab.

    Boson is more of virtual labs and practice tests.

    Microsoft Virtual Academy is free, so you could use that one right now if you wanted to.

    Pluralsight is ok. Seems like they moving more towards programming and web development.

    + for CBT nuggets and Boson. I have used them both for my CCENT.
