Provider Field Disabled for Subscription Content

Cornerstone's Content Delivery Connectors enable seamless integration between content providers and Cornerstone's Learning platform. Using the 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. Coursera for Business, edX for Business, Percipio by Skillsoft, and several other providers use the Content Delivery connectors with Content Anytime. In the Course Catalog, each content integration is represented by a subscription, which is a collection of courses that are bundled for a specific provider or mutual content purpose. Content Anytime (CCA) consists of several subscriptions, including Content Anytime Essentials, Content Anytime Digital Transformation, and more.

Prior to this enhancement, administrators with access to the Course Catalog or Course Console could modify the Provider field for all CCA subscription content, as well as for subscription integration content. However, manually updating the Provider field for subscriptions content can negatively impact reporting and create misleading data.

With this enhancement, the Provider field in the Course Catalog and Course Console has been disabled for subscription content and can no longer be edited by administrators. Disabling the Provider field for subscription content prevents future misalignment between subscription providers and subscription courses.

Implementation

The Provider field is automatically disabled for subscription content courses and playlists in all portals using a content subscription.
