Hello, Opportunity!

You’ve got things to do and dreams to fulfill. KC eLearning is here to help. With thousands of courses, videos, and books, there’s bound to be something to spark your learning, build your knowledge, and increase your skills.

For employees with King County email

Single sign on for KC eLearning is now available to all employees with a King County-provided email address. You can access the portal here.

What does this mean?

If you're on a computer connected to the King County network and using Internet Explorer, you can seamlessly connect to the KC eLearning portal. Whether you're connecting with the access the portal link at the top of this page, a desktop icon that you’ve linked to the site or you're following a share link, KC eLearning resources magically appear. (Well, not so magically if you're our tech folks—thanks to KCIT for your wizarding skills!)

If you're on a computer connected to the network and using Google Chrome (or a different browser) or if you're using a computer not connected to a King County network, a Microsoft Windows logon screen will appear. Simply use your King County email address and your standard Windows logon password.

How do I activate single sign on?

Use this link to go to login page for employees with King County email addresses. After that, you can continue to go through this website, bookmark the link in your browser, or build yourself a desktop icon with link. If you're following a share link from the newsletter or from a friend, no "activation" is required.

For employees without King County email

We haven't forgotten you, but unfortunately we don't have a super simple sign in solution for you . . . YET!

No worries though: you still can access the system. Use this link to access the portal for employees without King County email.

  • To log in use your 9-digit PeopleSoft number; include the leading zeroes. If you don’t know it, you can find it on your pay stub.
  • If you’ve logged into KC eLearning before, your password will be the one you set.
  • If this is your first time to KC eLearning, your password is welcome.

If you find you're about to give up or rip your hair out, submit a help ticket, enjoy a cup of tea or a yoga pose, and someone will be in touch to walk you through the process.

We want you to be able to use the resource and are here to help!

To help you take your learning mobile, there is an app you can use for KC eLearning. It’s an excellent way to read books at your convenience, make use of your commute time with audiobooks, or kick off meetings with videos from subject matter experts. You also can access executive summaries and skill briefs.  
 
Currently, many mobile-ready courses are being added. Only these courses will appear when using the app. You will be able to access the content except for the final test. You’ll need to log back in on a desktop or laptop computer to take the test. The system will remember where you left off on your mobile device. If you don’t see a course when using the app, it’s probably not mobile ready. Check back for it when you’re connected via your desktop or laptop. 
 
Following are instructions to get you going with the app. 
 
Download the app from the App Store for IOS devices or from Google Play for Android devices. It’s called Skillsoft Learning App. 

iPhone | Android

Configure the app. Our sitename is KingCounty
 
Sign in. Sign in with your Skillport credentials. Skillport is the platform we currently use to power KC eLearning. 
 
Important note: For employees with King County email, you can use your email address as your username and your Windows logon password as your password.

For employees that do not have a King County email address, your username is your PeopleSoft number. It has nine digits. Be sure to include the leading zeroes. If you don’t know it, you can find it on your pay stub. If you’ve logged into KC eLearning before, your password will be the one you set. If this is your first time to KC eLearning, your password is welcome
 
Personalize your content experience. Once you’re in, select at least three areas of interest. This helps the app automatically populate your home page with potentially relevant resources. 
 
And you’re off! Enjoy the ease and flexibility of learning on the go!
