Accueil » Blog » Product updates » The Cornerstone x Teach on Mars Integration: everything you need to know!

Many of Teach on Mars’ clients also use Cornerstone OnDemand (CSOD) to develop staff skills. Good news! You can now synchronize Cornerstone onDemand with Teach on Mars. The integration has many benefits for learners and managers alike.


Transparent synchronization and better monitoring

Apart from expanding the CSOD catalogue with Teach on Mars’ fun, engaging and mobile-first content, the CSOD – Teach on Mars integration provides 3 significant benefits:

  • For managers/administrators, performance management becomes far easier because monitoring of the training system is done from a single platform: all the training statistics are transferred to CSOD.
  • For learners, we prioritize ease of use: if learners are used to connecting to Cornerstone, they can now find all the courses from the Teach on Mars catalogue in CSOD. If they’re used to connecting via Teach on Mars, their data is automatically transferred to CSOD.
  • Finally, within CSOD, seeing as Teach on Mars training content is “converted” into Online Content, it can be used in CSOD tools including Playlist, Curriculum, Learning Assignement, Certification, etc.

The Teach on Mars training catalogue in Cornerstone

Thanks to the Cornerstone x Teach on Mars integration, learners will find all their Teach on Mars courses in their Cornerstone environment (presented as Cornerstone Online Content).

From the Cornerstone app, the link will automatically direct learners to the Teach on Mars application (mobile or web) to do their training.

Technically speaking, the synchronisation is made possible thanks to APIs developed by Teach on Mars according to Cornerstone specifications. Daily synchronisation enables you to update in Cornerstone any training content which is added, modified or archived in Teach on Mars.

A significant amount of information is synchronised for each piece of content: course name, description, key words, miniature (thumbnail), default language, as well as translations of these elements into every language in which the course is offered.

This gateway is an opportunity for learners, who are passionate about their CSOD environment, to gain easy access to Teach on Mars content and to expand their training catalogue, in particular with the wealth of content in our Learning Station offered by CEGOS, Skillsday, etc.

Statistics transfer to facilitate system performance monitoring

Apart from synchronising the training catalogue, the Cornerstone – Teach on Mars integration enables the synchronisation of statistical data, to allow managers to monitor system performance more easily.

In this way, managers can use the Cornerstone Reporting 2.0 tab to consult and manage all the statistical data regarding learners’ progression, completion rates and time spent training using Teach on Mars content. This data is transferred in real time at the end of each activity.

Learners, meanwhile, can check their completion rate and time spent training on the Cornerstone User Transcript page.

Simply connecting to Cornerstone is enough. Learners save time and gain direct access to an array of fun training content, designed for mobile use, and with better engagement rates.

With this full integration, Cornerstone and Teach on Mars are enabling their clients to offer learners an expanded training offer, while ensuring streamlined management for trainers and L&D managers.
