Pros

It's been a wonderful experience with Blackboard, i love how other applications integrate so well with Blackboard.
Blackboard is wonderful for students, it is very easy to use and they constantly do updates that help improve the system.
Overall I had a wonderful experience and I’ve talked to other students about their thoughts and the overall consensus was it’s great for the busy college student.

Pros

I like that CSOD is an integrated HRIS system. It has a great end-user experience and a nice interface.
I also LOVE the Cornerstone Success Center and the Knowledge Base. It's so amazing how theyve built a community of their customers that's actually engaging and helpful.
Excellent UI and End User experience. Great product and customer teams, quarterly updates that always add meaningful, high quality new features.

Cons

We ran our own host and it had nothing but problems, and I am not talking hardware. Every time we went to run an update, it broke something.
When you first enter blackboard it can seem hard to navigate and seem overwhelming for both student and teacher. The options for customization for teachers are somewhat limited.
Blackboard Learn is a frustrating platform to use.

Cons

Since 13.1 came out, we've had nothing but problems with files not loading, 404 errors, server errors, and to make matter worse, expect to wait a week or more to be told, there is nothing they can do.
Learning implementation was difficult, because of all the configurability and our lack of understanding of the limitations.
The worst experience I have ever had with a software or company.

Blackboard Learn is a Bit Outdated

Reviewed a year ago

Considering the price point and many good features, this is still a good platform to manage online courses. There are just some features that need innovation.

Pros

The ease of use is a very great feature of this software. Adding and managing online courses and lessons is a breeze. The import/export function of the test maker built in the software is also a plus.

Cons

The interface feels a little bit outdated as compared to other LMS.

Blackboard is a bit more complex and layered than other LMS. I have had a better experience with their support team than other LMS

Pros

The best part about Blackboard to me is their new version Ultra. Ultra is a much more modern, user-friendly interface.

Cons

It is lacking a lot of features that other competing LMS have, for example, copying content across courses that will be automatically updated.

For me personally the interface was not intuitive for the task we were using it for. While I don't think this is normally used in a college-classroom setting we were considering it for that and it just didn't meet our needs. It may work for you

The software is adaptable to different ways of organizing a course and I do manage to use this software to help teach my classes.

Cons

Although the new update has improved the user interface somewhat, I still find it to less than user-friendly. You spend a lot of time entering test questions and the like. The video conferencing feature is very difficult to use -- you can't see everything you want to see.

We have the Lite version of Blackboard LMS and even with on site training for our teachers the product is not user friendly enough for our teachers to use it. The usage percent of the LMS portion of Blackboard in our K-12 school district is 0% and we would no longer have this portion of it if it had not been housed under our web hosting services for a priced bundle.

Pros

All of the products and integration that our school needs with an LMS.

Cons

The lite version is not user friendly and thus is not useable.

My overall experience has been somewhat frustrating. I used a different platform at the previous university, and the transition to Blackboard Learn has not been an easy one. I have not had the time to learn all the functions available, and some of the features I would like (from my previous platform) are not available with Blackboard Learn.

Blackboard Learn employs a feature where many other apps and learning platforms can be smoothly integrated into the LMS.

Blackboard Learn: The Leading LMS Platform for Higher Education

Reviewed a year ago

Very great experience. I rely on Blackboard Learn in managing all my online/face-to-face courses. I also rely on it in providing training sessions, tutorials, and office hours.

Pros

I have been using Blackboard Learn to support my undergraduate and graduate university courses. I mainly use it to flexibly:1. Post course lecture notes and recorded videos.2. Post assignments and manage their submission policies and due dates3. Conduct exams and quizzes4. Post grades to students and link it to Banner to be on the University database system5. Use many tools such as Blackboard Collaborate to conduct video conferencing sessions and office hours with students

Cons

Creating exams and assessments can be streamlined in a better way to create questions of different types more flexibly and rapidly. I recommend having a tool to do MCQ grading (such as Gradescope) integrated in the Blackboard LMS. Moreover, integrating video editing tools into the LMS itself would be a great addition as well.

Blackboard: The Gold Standard LMS

Reviewed 5 years ago

Overall, blackboard has been great to us. The only reason we left was due to the customer support (or lack thereof).

Pros

Blackboard set the bar so high many years ago that a lot of companies are still trying to catch up. They are innovators in the LMS world and there's a reason they've had such success and longevity. Blackboard is robust with what it comes with out of the box. As cliche as it sounds, Blackboard really is a one-stop shop LMS.

Cons

The Support Team on Blackboard could certainly be improved. Many of their technicians work weird hours due to being oversees so screenshare sessions can be difficult to setup. There is also a language barrier that makes troubleshooting more difficult than it should be. There is also a lapse in communication between their departments, so you usually end up telling 3 different technicians the same exact thing.

Tried, True and Old

Reviewed 5 years ago

The best thing about this platform is it robustness and age. It has years of development behind it which means that it's unlikely to break an supports nearly all external tools available for LMS'. Aside from that, it's clunky, un-intuitive, ugly and does not allow nearly as much customization as newer LMS'. Avoid this if possible.

Pros

- Robust and solid - Supports integration with many external tools

Cons

- Outdated design - Cluttered interface - Un-intuitive layout

Blackboard works well enough, still trying to catch up.

Reviewed 2 years ago

Blackboard works well enough for what we need to use it for. There are other LMS that work equally as well, if not better, so there is healthy competition to push Blackboard to improve.

Pros

Blackboard is a relatively stable platform with few major bugs that restrict users from completing tasks. It has a long history and many users are familiar with the LMS.

Cons

Some of the tools don't always work as smoothly as you'd like. They are making major improvements but there are still issues that come up to make it a cohesive experience and tools not feel as disjointed.

The thing that I like most about the software is how easy it is to learn, and pick up on. When I came into this role, I had no prior cornerstone or LMS experience, but it was super easy for me to learn and navigate. Highly recommend Cornerstone to those who are looking for a new provider.

Cons

There really isn't anything that sticks out that I like least about the software. Their support model can be tricky to deal with from time to time, but that's about it honestly.

Cornerstone LMS

The most flexible tool I've seen

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall after careful analysis we have remained with Cornerstone as they provide the most flexibility and options to train our diverse workforce.

Pros

There is a tremendous amount of flexibility in the tool to address various audiences. We are able to use our PeopleSoft user data to funnel what is seen by whom, assigned to whom, etc.

Cons

With the flexibility comes a lot to learn. It takes quite a while to become proficient in all the areas of the tool.

Excellent and versatile LMS

Reviewed 3 years ago

It is difficult to learn simply because it is so versatile and there is so much to do. Having Stage and Pilot portals is very helpful for practice and learning the system!

Pros

Cornerstone LMS (and other features) is extremely versatile and can handle everything that we throw at it. We operate with a co-op sort of set up with many different business units in the same LMS, and it works beautifully.

Cons

Some aspects are a bit "steppy" to create, such as building performance tasks. It would be extremely handy to be able to create a review process all in-line, instead of having to build each subsequent piece separately before putting the whole task together.

Pros

I like the how it helps me learn new skills and and new information through this platform. As a visual learner it can provide interactive options by answering quiz questions.

Cons

Sometimes the system is faulted by not showing a training task is completed; however, this only happened in one situation.

Cornerstone Learning has been essential to our learning culture!

Reviewed 3 years ago

Cornerstone is a great partner to work with. I have been so pleased with our main contacts over the years and I feel that they truly do advocate for us and help us achieve of institutional goals. Their tier 1 support is 5 stars- I've never been disappointed with the help and attention I receive from tier 1. I do think that tier 2 support could take some pointers from tier 1, as this year I have not been happy with how a couple of my escalated tickets were handled. I will say that I wrote in feedback about this and Cornerstone immediately contacted me to gather information. They are truly a responsive company that I have enjoyed working with for almost 6 years.

Pros

I love the versatility of it. There isn't just one way to do something. We have come up with creative ways to achieve and end goal. I also LOVE the Cornerstone Success Center and the Knowledge Base. It's so amazing how theyve built a community of their customers that's actually engaging and helpful!

Cons

The system itself is not difficult to learn. Just like any other system, you have to learn it and get comfortable with it. I also dislike that some of the functionality is antiquated (like groups) or just looks "old" (like the test engine). Cornerstone is making strides in updating pieces of the system and we have been so happy with their updates in reporting, the LAT, the content uploader, and Edge.

Top notch Learning System For Our Premium Needs

Reviewed 4 years ago

Cornerstone Learning has been firmly a part of training and development workflow for as long as I have been a art of this organization, and it has served us well. The UI is easy to the train for both our end users and administrators/educators. Yet, we have just only cracked the surface with the modules that we have employed.

Pros

Cornerstone Learning is intuitive to learn with a mostly clean interface. Some newer systems have more modern and updated features, but Cornerstone does the job for us. I love how relatively easy it has been to engage our users and deliver quality learning objects.

Cons

The content development tools are growing, but find external authoring applications is still essential.

Trying out a new LMS!

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

This program offers a lot more options than our previous Learning Management System, including more interaction for employees. It is also easier to include other resources.

Cons

There was a large learning curve and we had several different supporters of our transition, which made it difficult to build a partnership and learn from the support we were provided since we had to catch up our newly assigned client manager.

CSOD Getting Better Every Year!

Reviewed 5 years ago

We are very happy with the applicatoin. We have been with Cornerstone for over 3 years now and signed a new contract for another 5 years. The support we get from them is excellent and would not look elsewhere.

Pros

Constant improvement (quaterly) is something I really like about this application. Users do not complain about it, which is a huge plus for us supporting the app in our organization. The application is big and there is always something new to learn or better way of doing things.

Cons

There is not much that I can say negative about the application. One thing that I would like to change is character count when creating groups. It might seem small for some organization admins, but for us its a important as our groups can be very large. It is frustrating when creating a group and you are unable to save it because you succeeded the character limit. Not a deal breaker but for sure an annoyance that can perhaps be fixed in the next releases.

The overall of this system is that it can do almost anything. The choices are limitless. We are able to track our employees' required training, certifications, other classes they have attended etc. It is highly functional, and helps us to support this daily. The only con if you will, is there is so much to learn that we feel sometimes we aren't maximizing the system due to the fact we just need to get things live.

Full of Features to Streamline Your Business

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

There are a ton of features to help streamline your business processes. The reports feature is one that we use frequently. Our employees enjoy CyberU, the training course catalog, and find it helpful to have so many options at their fingertips.

Cons

Trying to figure out exactly how to do what you want to do is not easy. The videos offered that are intended to help you learn the functionality are not really helpful. They are very cut and dry and don't offer many scenarios. The help feature in the Cornerstone Support Center is nice, but you have to be very specific when searching for your topic, or you won't find your answer, even if it's there.

Cornerstone Learning Management System

Reviewed 3 years ago

Cornerstone is a highly customizable solution. Although there is much training needed from an admin perspective to optimize its functionality, the user experience is a positive one.

Pros

Cornerstone offers a large base of resources to use and learn the system. Not only is it user friendly for employees, but also allows for ease of tracking training from an admin perspective. Although security can be complicated, the system offers many choices in how companies would like to set up user access. The ability to customize the system to meet organizational needs is great. Continuous updates to the system in order to make improvements and add enhancements is definitely a plus.

Cons

Some older features can use a facelift. When questions are submitted, the response time is slow. Instead of removing features in order to add new ones, would be beneficial to leave those that work well while adding additional features instead of removing those that clients appreciate in order to make room for new features. Improvements to the mobile app are needed in order for it to be a full experience for users as it is on the web.

Awesome LMS and Company--definitely a leader in the business

Reviewed 9 years ago

One of the things that helped Cornerstone stand out from other LMS vendors was the company itself. Their culture was very similar to our own company culture, which was a plus. However, I think we were most impressed with their communication, support, and resources. Once we decided to go with Cornerstone, we were given ample time to learn how to administer the LMS and test things in a pilot environment...
