Cornerstone Learn - Launch AICC Courses in External Browser (iOS)

For the legacy version of the mobile app, there was a Course Catalog setting specific to AICC courses which allowed administrators to configure AICC courses to launch in a mobile browser, as opposed to through the application course player. AICC courses often launch in multiple windows or pop-ups, and sometimes include redirects. The setting to allow AICC courses to launch in a mobile browser created a better user experience in the legacy app, but was not yet available for the redesigned Cornerstone Learn app.

With this enhancement, the iOS version of the Learn app can launch AICC courses in the device's external browser instead of via a single web view. In many cases, this external browser will be Safari or Chrome. This added flexibility allows the Learn app to seamlessly launch many more courses, which may open in multiple windows or tabs.

This feature is not available during UAT.

Considerations

This feature is only available for the iOS version of the Cornerstone Learn app. The Android version of the Learn app already handles courses that launch in multiple windows.

Implementation

This functionality is automatically available to iOS users of the Cornerstone Learn app. If the apps on a user's device are configured to auto-update, no action is required from the user in order to receive this functionality. If the apps on a user's device are not configured to auto-update, the user must download the latest version of the app from the Apple store.
