Pluralsight: Catalog growth

My colleague @suparn helped me collect data about Pluralsight courses. We found that since 2012, Pluralsight has launched over 12,300 courses of sorts. Some of these are just conference talks, and many of the topics are no longer relevant.

The average length of these courses is 2 hours 20 minutes, while the median is 2 hours. Here’s their difficulty distribution:

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 providers’ enrollment numbers. But unlike other providers, 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. Then, we filtered out the courses created before 2018, to focus on current topics.

Here are Pluralsight’s top 100 courses (since 2018, sorted by number of ratings):
