Android Learn App - Learner Home

The Learner Home page functions as the landing page for the Cornerstone Learn app, allowing mobile learners to browse for and request relevant training, search and filter for specific training, and prioritize mandatory training. The Learner Home includes several features which enable learners to easily select subjects of interest, discover training based on machine learning, and quickly access and request new training.

To access Learner Home on the app, log into the Cornerstone Learn app. To navigate back to the Learner Home after navigating to other pages, click the Options icon in the upper-left corner of the screen, then click the Home option.

Note: The permission to access Learner Home is NOT required in order to access this page in the app.

Search

The Search bar can be opened at the top of the Learner Home page by clicking the Search icon, and allows users to search for training.

Welcome Banner

Across the top of the page, a carousel of banners created by the learning administrator display to the mobile learner. The carousel cycles through all available banners. If the user taps the banner, they are navigated to any URL that the administrator associated with the banner. The link associated with the banner opens in a web browser, and the user does NOT need to log in again if the link is to a Cornerstone system page.

The following considerations apply to this functionality:

  • No button displays on custom banners in the Cornerstone Learn app.
  • The Learn app displays the same banner that is uploaded for the web experience. For information about configuring the banner: See Learner Home Preferences.

Below the banner carousel, the message, "Welcome to your Learner Home, [User]" displays if the user is accessing the page for the first time. The message, "Welcome back, [User]" displays if the user has previously accessed the page. These welcome messages display the user's name as it appears in their user record.

Training Metrics

In the Training Metrics section, the following information about training on the user's transcript displays:

  • Training Past Due - This field displays the number of training items on the user's transcript which have due dates that have passed.
  • Training Due Soon - This field displays the number of training items on the user's transcript that are due within the next ten days.
  • Assigned Training - This field displays the number of training items on the user's transcript that have been assigned without a due date.

Training Carousels

Below the welcome message, several different carousels of training may display to the user if applicable training is available and the learning administrator has enabled the carousel via Learner Home Preferences. Each carousel provides relevant training recommendations to learners, and learners can page through the carousel to see all recommendations.

Note: Only mobile-enabled training displays in the training carousels on the app, unless the user has not opted to enable the Only Show Mobile Training option on the Settings page of the app.

Note: Not all the carousels available on the desktop version of Learner Home are available on the mobile version of Learner Home.

Each training tile displays with its associated thumbnail image, training type, and training title.
