What is Acorn?

Acorn is an intuitive cloud-based learning management system that empowers organisations to manage the learning, onboarding, recruitment and performance management of their entire workforce.

The platform is not solely focused on learning management – instead using eLearning as the foundation for end-to-end professional development and strategic workforce planning. Produce personalised learning pathways; design and tailor workflows; and structure content to populate SCORM or TinCan material.

Integrations with your existing HR and payroll systems, as well as Acorn’s robust reporting capabilities, further allow you to easily track individual progression. Acorn is also mobile-ready, so you and your staff will never miss a training session.

Acorn is under constant development. We are forever striving to offer a platform that grows with each organisation and provides functionality based on the latest in educational research and best practices.

Trainisiting over to Acorn has been great as we have been able to significantly cut down on administration activities which acorn now do automatically for us. Having Acorn integrate and connect with other systems that we use is amazing. Our end-users (our students) have found it easy to use. As administrators in the system we have always been supported by technical and support staff. Overall a fantastic product.

As an RTO organisation this product is easy to navigate for both the administrators and the learners. It is clean and offers a fresh look to e-learning. There a number of excellent features that have been developed with e-learning in mind, for example, the live learning function where learners can book for live learning events and see their calender of up coming events. Reporting functions also help us keep us update with what are learners are up to and where extra support might be needed. Intergarition with other systems is a massive advantage.

We needed a system that could have multiple tenancies which we have achieved that function in different ways. This has allowed us to have our internal training for staff and contractors separate from our external training that is a revenue line for the business.

Pros: The platform has been easy to set up with the support of the Pursuit Technology developer. The course set up structure is also easy to use.

Cons: There is no option to have a course changed from self-enrolment to admin enrolment only. There is limited functionality to choose different selections in setting up cohorts to use fields not equal to. The set up of new users is clunky with having to upload the whole user dataset again as we don't have a HR system to draw the data from. The other issue is the inability to change the home page to feature the elements we want to have eg a blog.
