Anders Pink Content Curation Plugin, by Northern Star

Do you want to drive traffic and engagement in your Cornerstone platform to keep learners coming back?

One way to do that is to bring in fresh, relevant content from around the web to keep learners up to date. That’s what content curation is all about.


The good news

That’s what learners want. 83% of them consider external content from the web essential for learning – compared to 39% for elearning (Workplace Learning Survey, 2018). Modern learning professionals want to go beyond courses to find, filter and share great external content inside their platforms.


The challenge is the time and effort involved, if you’re doing curation manually. You could

  • Check thousands of sites, social networks and sources for relevant content…
  • Copy and paste links into Cornerstone…
  • …and do that every day, for every audience.
But that’s not very scalable.

More good news: There’s a better way to bring fresh and trending content into Cornerstone.

What if you could:

  • Create content feeds specific to the topics and interests of your learners
  • Plug those feeds directly into the relevant place in your Cornerstone platform
  • Automatically get updated content in your feeds, every few hours



That’s exactly what you can do with our Anders Pink content curation plugin for Cornerstone.


What’s Anders Pink?

Anders Pink is an award-winning content curation tool for learning. Used by over 1m learners, it keeps learners and teams up to date by bringing the best content from around the web directly into your Platforms and apps based on your interests, automatically updated every few hours. You can create custom content feeds (called briefings) using a combination of filters including:

  • Topics and keywords you want to track
  • Sites
  • RSS feeds

You can ensure only content from specific sites is shown, or block domains or keywords you don’t want. This content is then delivered into CSOD and updates every few hours with new content. You can also save the very best content into a folder, and display only the specific content you’ve chosen.


How the curation service works:
