Compare learning content: Skillsoft vs Lynda

Interested in anyone's experience comparing content from Skillsoft/Skillport versus Lynda for 

  • Currency: how up to date is content? How often updated?
  • Quality: does content reflect current best practices in soft skills and non-technical categories?
  • Coverage: are non-technical categories (Business Skills, Leadership, Communication) comprehensive--or at least as comprehensive as the technical topics?
