"Subscriptions" Field Added to the Course Catalog and Course Console

Cornerstone's Content Delivery connectors enable a seamless integration between content providers and Cornerstone's learning management system (LMS). Using Content Delivery connectors, courses are automatically streamlined to the Course Catalog.

In February 2020, Cornerstone upgraded Content Anytime to utilize Content Delivery connectors with automated synchronization technology. In addition, both the Coursera for Business and edX for Business integrations use Content Delivery connectors.

In the Course Catalog and Course Console, each content integration is represented by a subscription, which is a collection of courses bundled for a specific provider or mutual content purpose. Content Anytime consists of several subscriptions, such as Content Anytime Essentials, Content Anytime Digital Transformation, and more.

With the May 2020 release, the following enhancements have been made:

  • A new Subscriptions field displays for training in the Course Catalog and in Course Console for learning administrators
  • When a user launches an AICC, SCORM, or Online Content course, the content source is visible in the launch URL.

Use Case: Learning Administrator Views the Subscriptions Field

Julie, a learning administrator at ACME Co, wants to view which subscriptions that are linked to a certain online course. This information is helpful to her because online courses may be included in different integrations, and therefore associated with more than one subscription. In the ACME portal, some courses are included in a Content Anytime subscription sold by Cornerstone, and the same courses are also delivered by a direct integration, using a content provider.

Julie navigates to the Course Catalog page for an online course and views the Subscriptions field available on the Course Catalog - General page. This allows her to see the source of the course and better manage her organization's courses, subscriptions, and providers.

Implementation

This functionality is automatically available in all Learning portals using a content subscription.
