Product Review: Cornerstone OnDemand
DECEMBER 12, 2011
The same can be said for Cornerstone OnDemand. In 1982 a film called Tron appeared on the silver screen. It was without a doubt one of the most hyped films of all time. I remember seeing the ads, being excited about the possibility of such a movie with never before seen computer graphics. The line to get in was long. Chatter was everywhere. Anticipation was running high. Not bad, horrible.
The Cornerstone Effect
OCTOBER 13, 2014
First off let me be clear, this post is not about the Cornerstone OnDemand LMS in the sense of whether it is a good or bad platform. Talk to the vendors who pitch this term as if it is similar to your city being destroyed by Godzilla, and you will find that it similarly aligns with Cornerstone OnDemand’s platform.

SCORM 2004 data in Cornerstone OnDemand
MARCH 17, 2017
When speaking with other Captivate authors who publish their files in Cornerstone OnDemand (CSOD), the most frequent complaint regarding CSOD is the lack of quality, usable reporting of SCORM 2004 data. Unfortunately, all of the data you get is aggregated together so you can’t see how individual users did on specific questions. The image below is how I really want the data.

Top 50 LMS Report for 2016 – What you need to know (criteria, approach, and yeah some vendors)
NOVEMBER 3, 2015
I identify the Big Dogs as SumTotal by Skillsoft (yes, that is the actual name), Cornerstone OnDemand, Saba, SucessFactors and Oracle Taleo (although, I ask myself who is using this and if you still are why?). Cornerstone OnDemand – The whole separate Salesforce solution makes little sense to me, considering the number of vendors who have API or used Salesforce Canvas in their systems and thus it is a part of it. Cornerstone OnDemand. It’s nearly here. In a little over two months, my 2016 Top 50 LMS Report will be available for purchase. Not everyone gets in.
LMS Low-Cost Webinars Hosted eCommerce Subscriptions
OCTOBER 13, 2011
I was talking with a startup that has an existing audience and now want to provide a monthly subscription for access to training to this audience. They will only convert a portion of the audience to the new service. The learners will get access to webinars, recorded webinars, videos, and other online content that they will author separately. They don't really have a tech team, so going with a hosted solution that would live at a subdomain would be best, i.e., subscribers would go to: learn.company.com in order to sign up, pay, and get access to webinars, content, etc. What?
B2B Top Five LMSs
JULY 17, 2014
I give it an edge over Cornerstone OnDemand, who still has major UI challenges to solve among some other items, and while their e-commerce is extremely extensive, if it and the admin side for that matter overwhelms you, then not even a great e-commerce will work. If you want uber e-commerce and can deal with the subpar UI and some other challenges, then explore Cornerstone OnDemand. #4 I admit I love lists. I’m one of those people who sees a book of lists about anything and then I must have it. I must read it. I just like lists. Yep, people love lists. But Back to B2B.
The Peformance Improvement
JULY 19, 2012
Vincent Belliveau , general manager at Cornerstone OnDemand , links continuous learning to employee engagement, which, he argues, results in greater productivity, reduced turnover, and a better company reputation. Why should you keep on learning? You have a college degree, maybe a terminal degree such as MBA or Ph.D. You have a job that you know how to do and you’re good at it.

LMS Decision Making Criteria B4 U Buy
OCTOBER 17, 2016
Ask someone to name a few LMSs or at least one, and I suspect it will be Cornerstone OnDemand or SumTotal. People either love or hate Cornerstone OnDemand, SumTotal Learn, Saba, SuccessFactors. The problem I have with all these items, is wondering how many of these people have bought an LMS, i.e. been on your side – the buyer’s side? And if yes, what verticals? I have.
#HRTECH Learning Vendors Preview – Who to see and who to avoid
OCTOBER 14, 2015
Cornerstone OnDemand. If I was to compare the Big Dog Four – SuccessFactors, Saba, Cornerstone OnDemand and SumTotal by Skillsoft, Saba would win hands down. Welcome, welcome all! To those from HR who are new to this blog, I give a high five. To those who have been constant readers, I give a high five with a low five to boot. And to those who are constant readers from all over the world and training, L&D and other professions, I give two high fives, four low fives and a bucket of joy. Why am I so happy? It is HR Tech.

Special Post – Why the Big Four are not on my latest Top 10 LMS List
MAY 7, 2013
“While the pricing is outrageous and the Saba as a whole seems better suited as a HCM, their learning suite is a better alternative than those who want Cornerstone OnDemand.” Since my Top 10 list of LMS vendors has been posted online, I have received quite a bit of e-mail wondering why the biggest names: Cornerstone On Demand, Saba, SumTotal and SuccessFactors are not on the list. A LMS should first be a LMS. You can have TM features – regardless if it is an add-on or included (turn on/off), but it shouldn’t really be the core. Think about it. I know I do. Fact.

E-Learning Jargon: What you might think it is.well…
SEPTEMBER 22, 2014
The most well known vendor to use modules are Cornerstone OnDemand. As many of you are aware the e-learning world is well known for its jargon. In turn it is this jargon that can create confusion and misunderstanding not only for newbies into the space but also for hardened veterans. While it would be so much simpler if everyone used the same terminology – consumer world equal to e-learning world, that would be to easy and as anyone who has even put their toes into the online learning world, easy is a word that is rarely afforded. Gamification and Gaming. The E-Learning World.

Video’s Role in the Enterprise
JANUARY 21, 2015
OnDemand video is the most widespread form used, but live video has an impressive presence as well. Video is everywhere, transforming the way we learn, work, shop, communicate, collaborate, and entertain. So, it’s not surprising that video has become a critical tool for communication, learning, and knowledge sharing in modern enterprises. With its unique ability to capture and illustrate information and engage viewers, enterprises leverage video to improve communication, collaboration, and employee knowledge and productivity. So, what kind of role does video play in the enterprise?

Cornerstone OnDemand. It is over. A big expo with several LMS vendors along with a few HR focused vendors who had a “learning component” to their systems. Lots of interesting stuff happening over in the HR space, but this analysis is all about our beloved e-learning and thus wonderful LMS flying machines (anyone see that movie? Anyone?).

#25 to #11 LMSs of 2012
DECEMBER 5, 2012
While the pricing is outrageous and the Saba as a whole seems better suited as a HCM, their learning suite is a better alternative than those who want Cornerstone OnDemand. It is the holiday season and for those who see me as the grinch (okay a few vendors do, but I digress) here is a special post. Next week, 12-12-12, will be #10 to #1 learning management systems for 2012. This week: #25 to #11 (cheering and booing is allowed, but please keep it to yourself).

Learning Solutions Series: Social Learning Appealing, but Not Widely Used

However, Element K has made substantial, progressive improvements to their LMS, most recently by building custom integrations between Jive Clearspace and KnowledgeHub, Element K’s LMS.
