eLearning 24-7

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. Nor is it about the company itself, rather it is about the effect the system has on the entire LMS industry.

It might come off as an indicator that they need a new system, however, I’d argue that the reason you see the hands is because whoever made the final decision, selected the wrong system.

While UI on the front and back end of a system continues to be all over the place – from generally awful to very nice – regardless of the price point, its the features that stand out (or in some cases -you should stand clear off) in the space.

Answering your LMS Questions
