Product Review: Cornerstone OnDemand
DECEMBER 12, 2011
The same can be said for Cornerstone OnDemand. The hype on the product was huge, after all, the company’s revenue has increased significantly over the past two years. Search Connect – their search capability within the product. Product in general. Yet the product prefers to go with the toolbar and sub set of options. The line to get in was long. Admin.
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. It can make or break any product. You either buy all their products or as much as you can OR you go against them and buy Android OS devices and non Apple products, including Microsoft PCs. I also picked up on statements made by consumers.
The Peformance Improvement
JULY 19, 2012
Other than your supplier’s new products and services, what is there left to learn? 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? Learning and work have merged.
2010 LMS Products of the Year
DECEMBER 27, 2010
LMS Products of the Year 2010. A lot of great products out there this year, new updates and latest versions; new companies, new services and just some real innovation. Big Dog (Saba, SumTotal, Plateau, Cornerstone OnDemand, Learn.com). If you are seeking TM as your focus and you want one of the big dogs – I found Plateau’s system to offer appropriate functionality for it, but found some real concern in other areas (see my product review). The product is Flash based, which is nice, but lack of mobile optimization for the iPad. These standout to me.
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. And BTW, nearly every LMS can interface with Oracle products. It’s nearly here. Not everyone gets in. No. Not in.

Resellers who are part of your business learning network – maybe you provide them courses on how to sell your product. 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 must read it. I just like lists. Sweet.
Readers Q&A on E-Learning
JULY 29, 2015
Cornerstone OnDemand. Q: We use Cornerstone OnDemand for our LMS and have to ask – where do you see them today? However, the people I have spoken with at CoD tell me that Learning Cloud (the LMS) is their biggest seller in their product line. If the financial numbers quarterly are so strong, then why is the product, Learning Cloud, lagging in some areas versus others (in comparison with the LMS space on average)? This last quarter saw the most questions ever asked, which was quite cool, but made it difficult to select which ones would appear this quarter.
Special Post – Why the Big Four are not on my latest Top 10 LMS List
MAY 7, 2013
When I talk about a LMS, I am saying specifically a learning management system and the vendors themselves should see their own product first and foremost as a LMS, not as a TM/PM or whatever. There is a wide assumption that if a product sells a lot it means that it is better than anyone else. Yet if you look at the marketplace of any consumer product you will see that is not always the case. But can you tell me it is a better made product than BMW, which has less sales than Honda? From a general product standpoint, go take a look at Amazon.com or Consumer Reports.

Between the two systems, I am leaning more towards LMS365, just because I honestly believe it has a future in the SharePoint space much more so than their other product (nothing against it, but…). I’m not sure why they “appear” as separate products on their site. Cornerstone OnDemand. If I was to compare the Big Dog Four – SuccessFactors, Saba, Cornerstone OnDemand and SumTotal by Skillsoft, Saba would win hands down. HCM product all the way, but learning is offered. Anyway, the product is dated. Welcome, welcome all!

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. Did they sound interested and passionate about their product? And if yes, what verticals? What challenges did they face? How long have they been on the buyer side? I have. Been there.

For the masses of the e-learning audience, people do not shoot video at a production facility or have one in house; but some do. Some people might convert their PPT to a video (it can be done) OR they have that production facility and shoot their own high quality videos OR they purchase 3rd party content video courses. The most well known vendor to use modules are Cornerstone OnDemand. The biggest and best known of the initial RCATs is Articulate Studio, which uses PowerPoint as a cornerstone to their product. .

OCTOBER 23, 2015
My source tells me that this new version is in production as we speak. For folks who use their product, I was told by a salesperson that xAPI is not on their radar, nor is any type of on/off synch mobile app. . Considering that the rest of their product was live on various computers, I’m a little confused. Again, if the “Experts” don’t know what it is or why it can be useful, what does that say about the product – from a learning perspective? Talent Pool comes with the learning product. At least they have a product. .

With its m-learning capability including on/off synch and rather solid UI, the product continues to be an effective solution.

What they found, according to Leighanne Levensaler, senior vice president of products at Workday, is that LMSs are “disconnected, impersonal, and not easy or fun to use.” Historically, Workday has worked with Cornerstone OnDemand and Saba to help its customers find learning solutions.

Update June 2008 - added one free flash quiz tool based on a question I received. This tool is listed at the bottom. A client wanted to create online quizzes that would live inside of a larger site. They didn't really need tracking of user responses, instead they wanted them to be fun. So, the eLearningGuild research again to the rescue.
