Pluralsight: By the Numbers

Pluralsight: Catalog Growth Over the Years

Our colleague @suparn helped us collect data about Pluralsight’s course offering.

We found that since 2012, Pluralsight has launched over 14,177 courses. Some of these are just conference talks, and many of the topics are no longer relevant. Today, Pluralsight boasts a catalog of about 7,000 active courses.

The average length of these courses is 2 hours 10 minutes, while the median is 1 hour 55 minutes. Here’s their difficulty distribution:

Free Certificates

My Pluralsight certificates of completion

One week of free access isn’t all that long. But Pluralsight specializes in short courses, with durations ranging from 30 minutes to a few hours. So if you’re motivated and have a little bit of time on your hands, you can squeeze a lot of learning into a week. Above, you can see some of the certificates of completion I’ve earned since the offer went live.

100 Top Pluralsight Courses

At Class Central, to write articles like the 250 Top Free Udemy Courses or 100 Most Popular Online Courses of All Time, we leverage the platforms’ enrollment numbers.

But unlike other platforms, Pluralsight doesn’t share how many learners are enrolled in each of its courses. So for Pluralsight, we used the number of ratings as a proxy for popularity.

Without further ado, here are the 100 top Pluralsight courses of all time.
