At DigitalNow, Meridian Offers Trade Groups On-the-Run Learning

HERNDON, VA--(Marketwire - April 4, 2011) - Learning just became a lot handier for America's nearly 100,000 professional, trade and non-profit groups. With a new learning management system (LMS) mobile profile made by Meridian Knowledge Solutions, trade groups can now help their members sign up for, launch and track training courses with smartphones, including Droid, iPhone and BlackBerry. Meridian's mobile profile links learners to Meridian's LMS software, which delivers and tracks education via the Internet.

"Our new mobile profile ensures that access to our LMS is just as optimized for a mobile workforce as it has been for conventional desktop and laptop users," said Vinay Nilakantan, director of product development and research at Meridian.

Meridian's new mobile profile detects which browser a learner is accessing the LMS from, and delivers a view that is tailored to the type of device at his or her fingertips. Meridian will show off its new mobile profile from April 7 - 8, 2011, at the DigitalNow conference in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. DigitalNow, produced by Fusion Productions and Disney Institute, is an annual gathering of some of the most influential professional and trade associations in America. 

Donald Dea, co-founder of Fusion Productions, added, "We conducted extensive due diligence in qualifying Meridian's platform, organization and product road map to bring forward an enterprise platform that is geared to solving the learning portal needs of associations."

Meridian's learning portal for associations mirrors the "unique processes, integration, and interface considerations of associations and non-profit organizations," said Dea. The Meridian portal supports members by tracking continuing education, managing competencies and delivering professional development courses. Meridian's new mobile profile gives trade groups a way to access Meridian's LMS platform via smartphones, not just desktop and laptop applications.

Meridian has implemented its flagship product, the Meridian Global LMS, for an array of professional and trade groups including PMI and Local 32BJ of the Service Employees International Union.
