Cool Resource: CBT Nuggets
This information was presented to AITP by one of our members, Casey Nitcher. An incredibly valuable resource that not many people have heard of is called www.cbtnuggets.com. As Casey stated, “They have A HUGE selection of IT learning videos in all aspects of IT. The downfall is that it’s pricey, but again, it is VERY worth it! Especially for those students that were like me before I started my internship, who know next to nothing about the Networking/Telecommunication path of IT.”
However, since a subscription to cbtnuggets can be costly, Texas Tech offers their own library of cbtnugget videos which are available at cbt.ttu.edu. Casey also mentioned a great disclaimer in regards to the Texas Tech collection, “Disclaimer- I’m not sure how old some of these videos are, they might be outdated..but the ones that I have watched, seemed to be fine for what I was looking for. Regardless, these videos are free, and any extra knowledge is good! I have ran into an annoying feature about it, sometimes it’ll prompt you to pass a pre-test before you can continue the course, but the pre-tests are easy enough that it shouldn’t be a concern. The best way to find what you are looking for (from my experience) is to just search what you’re looking for in the search bar. Another way to find content is to click on the “Browse the library” tab at the top of the page. There are several tabs for many different types of videos, even Business skills, which some IT majors might find useful for potential interviews and such.”
