Michigan Medicine to replace MLearning, first step in developing new Talent Management platform

Editor’s note: This project’s timeline has shifted from July to November 2022. Michigan Medicine Headlines has full details.

This July, MLearning – the system Michigan Medicine faculty, staff, and students use to register for and complete many regular, required training activities – will be replaced.

In conjunction with this change, the “MLearning” brand is being retired, and will become “Cornerstone Learning.”

The transition to Cornerstone Learning is part of a broader effort to develop and introduce a new, online Talent Management platform to serve all of Michigan Medicine, including faculty, staff and learners from U-M Health, the medical school and shared services units.

In addition to taking a more unified and holistic approach to professional and personal development, Michigan Medicine’s new Cornerstone Talent Management platform will leverage cloud-based, AI-driven technology that’s much more reliable, and designed to provide a more intuitive and user-friendly experience.

As highlighted in this “Quick Look” video, Cornerstone Learning offers many advantages over the current system, including:

  • A more modern, user-friendly interface that makes it easier for individuals to search for relevant learning content and manage their progress toward goals. It also enables managers to assign and track learning among members of their teams.
  • Greater reliability and flexibility – the cloud-based system will be updated regularly, and will enable learners to access training anywhere, anytime, using virtually any browser on any device. 
  • Integrates additional types of learning resources (including LinkedIn Learning) into a single, convenient hub – making it easier for managers and staff to develop customized learning plans, and providing everyone with easier access to a wider variety of professional and personal growth opportunities. 

To help the Michigan Medicine community become familiar with Cornerstone, and to help everyone prepare for a successful transition to Cornerstone Learning, the project team has created a website (michmed.org/cornerstone) that provides complete details.
