Learner Home - Skills Carousels

Prior to this enhancement, the Cornerstone Learning Management System (LMS) had various ways for learners to add the skills they were interested in developing and skills critical to success in their role. However, the learners had to dig into their profiles or conduct searches to view training related to these skills.

With this enhancement, Learner Home now includes two new skills carousels that help learners view and access training related to their skills directly on Learner Home. It displays content tagged to skills in a learner’s skills profile. The skills carousels update based on data from the learner’s skills profile. It helps learners optimize their skills and the skills they want to develop.

The two new carousels that are available to be configured to Learner Home are:​

  • Based on Skills You Want to Develop​
  • Based on Your Critical Skills

Configuration of Skills Carousels​ in Learner Home

The new skills carousels are disabled by default. An administrator can customize the configuration and add or remove the carousels at any time. To enable the skills carousels, go to Admin > Preferences > Learner Home Preferences > Scroll to Content Arrangement. Under the Based on Skills You Want to Develop and Based on Your Critical Skills section, click Disabled to activate the skills carousels.
