So long, MLearning. Hello, Cornerstone Learning! Plan now for blackout period (Nov. 3-7), learn where to find resources + support


MLearning will retire for good on Thursday, November 3. Cornerstone learning will go live on Monday, November 7.

Every year, Michigan Medicine faculty and staff have a number of training and learning modules that they are required to complete via MLearning.

While those modules will still be available — and mandatory — moving forward, their home will be changing over the next few weeks.

Here’s what you need to know about Cornerstone Learning, a new talent management platform coming to Michigan Medicine.

MLearning to be retired

Michigan Medicine Human Resources, Organizational Learning and Health Information Technology & Services are partnering to establish the new comprehensive Talent Management platform to serve all of Michigan Medicine.

The first major step in the process is retiring MLearning — the system the organization has long used to manage and deliver required and optional learning opportunities. It will be replaced by Cornerstone Learning.

Key transition details:

  • Thursday, Nov. 3: MLearning will be retired at 5 p.m.
  • Monday, Nov. 7: Cornerstone Learning will go live at approximately 7 a.m.
  • Nov. 3 – 7: During this period, no Learning Management system will be available, and access to ALL learner activities (e-learning and training registration) will be unavailable.
  • All current MLearning “mandatories” will be migrated over to Cornerstone — and anything that’s currently assigned will carry over.
  • Please note: Anyone with in-progress online training in MLearning must complete it by 5 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 3 – or start over again in Cornerstone Learning on/after Nov. 7. No in-progress trainings will carry over, meaning you will have to start from the beginning of the module.

Benefits of this change:

As a more modern, cloud-based platform, Cornerstone Learning offers many advantages over the existing system, including:

  • Improved search
  • Easier navigation
  • Greater access
  • Integration of additional learning resources, including LinkedIn Learning

Resources and support: 

To help the Michigan Medicine community prepare for this upcoming change, a Resources and Support page has been developed featuring a “transition toolkit,” information geared to different job roles and a new overview Video that introduces the new Cornerstone Learning “Welcome” page and provides a tour of its major features.
