I think CSOD is great for most organizations it does have a hefty price tag so making sure the robustness is leveraged is important when choosing the correct system for your organization. I appreciate that they have quarterly releases so the product is getting updates often versus some other LMSs when that is less frequent.

Moodle Workplace

Moodle Workplace is well suited if you are working remotely in a virtual organization and the job involves constant learning to compete in the market. This LMS resolves the logistics issue to assemble all participants [in] one place and makes it easy to deliver self-paced curated training programs. Through [an] e-learning platform, the trainer can share relevant readings and references in real time and conduct assessments at regular intervals.Moodle Workplace is [not] well suited for organizations where the job roles are largely standardized, and the work is static in nature. In such cases, an in-person learning workshop in an auditorium/learning hall is more appropriate.

Pros

Cornerstone OnDemand

  • The user group community is unlike any other. It is easy to connect with other clients and the CSOD team is actively engaged, always interested in what clients want and need.
  • Vast content catalog from a wide variety of providers. Content delivery service makes my job easier. I don't have to deal with course files and metadata!
  • Ease of use for non-admin admins! I was not a LMS administrator prior to implementation so I learned as I went which was fully supported by the robust training available to system admins.

  • E-Learning - The module helps in developing and assembling online training content that can be organized into a course catalog or browsable library. The in-built video player provides an interface for employees to engage with content and take courses at self-pace.
  • Device-agnostic - The LMS can be easily accessed on laptops or a specially designed mobile version. The experience, in either case, is the same and employees can schedule live web-based classes, meetings, or trainings.
  • Learning administration - The course administrators from the HR team can manage the content and users on the platform through in-built permission controls. It also provides insights into course completion, engagement with learning content, etc. that makes it easy to assess the employees' learning progress.

Cons

Cornerstone OnDemand

  • Reduce the number of clicks: for competencies bank management, it is necessary to save twice at least before submitting any modification.
  • Allow sorting by different means (names, ID etc), by default competencies are listed by alphabetical order which for our particular field is not the most convenient.

  • From UI perspective, I believe the assessment interface could be improved. The software could display detailed results of the tests/quizzes conducted on the platform, including the user's answer, the correct answer, and explanation thereof.
  • Another improvement could be providing more plugins to ensure that users don't have a completely different experience in terms of the platform's aesthetics. Perhaps, the UI/UX could be aligned with [the] Microsoft suite of applications to make the user feel more comfortable in using this SaaS platform.

As long as pricing stays reasonable, we will likely stay with Cornerstone for at least one more contract renewal. It would be a large task to migrate all of our content to a new system. However, the LMS landscape is diversifying with new startups that are showing some real innovation.

The system is huge so, even after using it as an administrator for a few years, I still find there are lots of pieces and things I do not know. Some of the more everyday tasks have cumbersome user interfaces that you become accustomed to but would be greatly helped by a redesign. The availability of assistance articles and the new knowledge bank help greatly with usability as you have a quick place you can go to for help with figuring out how to do various tasks.

Pages do not load quickly. Often times any action or selection of a box, drop down, check, pretty much ANY Javascript interaction causes the whole entire page to load/reload/start doing something in the background. This makes a nightmare for having to mass edit courses or upload ILT sessions. It's the one of the archaic web designs they use that really bugs me as an admin and makes working in the portal at times intolerable and insufferable

I included this information in my overall review, but I thought ADP was THE vendor to highlight for their bad customer service. [I feel] Cornerstone OnDemand goes above and beyond (or should I say down and below) anything ADP had set up for customer support: Only certain people can call / email directly if there are issues, so you must play "telephone" a bit to get your issue defined clearly; you can sign up for a weekly "office hours" session, but you must queue up and then listen to other customers as they try to resolve their issues; you can submit recommendations, but you NEVER hear back or your recommendation is just dismissed.

The online modules are pretty good. You can access them at any time, which we have done. You learn a lot in the beginning, but having the ability to retake short lessons when you are working on those items was very helpful.

Dig deep on what your current processes are and how they match up to Cornerstone OnDemand functionality. It's not that the Cornerstone OnDemand is bad, it just the amount of work it requires you to do to get your current data to fit into their system.

Alternatives Considered

Cornerstone OnDemand

Cornerstone OnDemand exceeds the features of these other LMS systems by offering more modules and features. CSOD is a one-stop shop LMS for talent management. The robust reporting and customizable options also make this a step above the other Learning Management Systems out there.
Marie Cheshier | TrustRadius Reviewer

Moodle Workplace

Moodle Workplace provides the most intuitive learning experience when it comes to organizing online training programs. It is easy to configure and integrate with the organization's ERP. The user interface is very smooth and aesthetically appealing. Further, the in-built video player can buffer videos even at poor bandwidths. Another advantage is that self-paced programs can be completed on multiple devices without any deterioration in user experience. I selected Moodle Workplace as I feel it provides the best value for money.

Return on Investment

Cornerstone OnDemand

  • Our initial goal was to track course compliance. We have met and exceeded that goal. The system provides an easy way for administrators, managers, and learners to track their assignments and course status.
  • Our secondary goals was to increase employee engagement. Once we migrated to their Learner Home page, we saw an increase in non-regulatory course registrations and completions.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Moodle Workplace

  • Moodle Workplace has certainly had a positive impact on our return on investment. With one purchase, we have avoided all the costs incurred in organizing in-person events and arranging logistics for the trainer and the trainees. The freed office space has been put to more efficient use for other purposes.
  • The team is now better prepared to face business challenges as curated training content have helped them upgrade their skill set and enhance their knowledge. This has improved the performance of [the] business as a whole.
  • The only negative impact could be [a] lack of face-to-face interaction in a class-like environment. The LMS offers numerous benefits but the sheer joy of asking questions to the trainer and performing group learning activities cannot be enjoyed in a digital platform.
