Free Webinar From Tagoras and Meridian Helps Associations Choose Right LMS

HERNDON, VA--(Marketwired - May 1, 2013) - There are hundreds of learning management systems (LMS) that deliver and analyze training. But, according to research from strategic analyst firm Tagoras, only a few dozen meet the requirements of trade associations and professional societies. Beginning in May, Tagoras and Meridian will present a series of webinars designed to help associations understand issues surrounding LMS selection, cloud technology and mobile platforms.

The first one-hour webinar, titled "Selecting a Learning Management System: Picking the Right Technology for Your Association's Vision," takes place on May 9, 2013, at 1 p.m. EDT. Register here.

The presenters are Celisa Steele and Jeff Cobb, principals with Tagoras, and Jason Marceau, chief operations officer with Meridian Knowledge Solutions. Steele and Cobb will take attendees on a fast-paced tour of the LMS landscape and outline a 7-step process for choosing an LMS that supports an association's membership and revenue goals. Marceau will provide insights and highlight associations that increased revenue by delivering education with an LMS.

"As associations seek to expand non-dues revenue, the right LMS can make all the difference," said Marceau. "The Tagoras process makes sure associations consider all the angles for their selection."

Webinar attendees will receive a checklist of key questions to ask prospective vendors and will leave the session with a clear understanding of how to develop appropriate use cases and what to expect in the LMS selection process.

The other webinars in the series are:

"Clearing Up the Cloud: What Is It -- and How It Impacts Your Learning," June 13, 2013

"How Mobile Impacts Your Organization's Learning and Marketing of Learning," July 18, 2013
