Meridian Releases 2013 Version of LMS Software for Global Audience

New Shopping Experience Reaches Extended Enterprise Learners

HERNDON, Va., March 19, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Meridian Knowledge Solutions,
a leading provider of learning management solutions, is announcing the latest
release of its Meridian Global LMS. This version gives associations, retailers
and global organizations a way to showcase educational content to members of
their extended enterprise – such as vendors, distributors, partners, members
and customers.

Extended enterprise learners can choose a course, video or other type of
content by logging into the LMS to purchase what they want in the currency of
their choice. The LMS supports over 120 international currencies, 28 languages
and operates seamlessly across disparate localities and time zones.

"In the 2013 version of Meridian Global, we're giving associations and
commercial organizations a simple way to present a 'store-front' Public
Catalog on their web sites to sell online and classroom courses," said Vinay
Nilakantan, vice president of Product Management and Marketing for Meridian.
"This provides a familiar shopping experience, like the kind they find
elsewhere on the web."

The Public Catalog in Meridian Global LMS 2013 proactively serves content that
is relevant to each learner's locale, while also allowing users to search for
educational content. All of this can be done without the need to log in to the
LMS. Click here to view a sample of the Public Catalog in Meridian Global LMS

"Associations, among other organizations, want a learning-technology platform
that they can easily manipulate to promote and sell content," added
Nilakantan. "What we're delivering with our newest version of Meridian Global
will improve an association's bottom line."

Meridian Global LMS 2013 also includes a social module for customers to
integrate discussion forums, wikis, blogs, document sharing and chat within
the application's collaboration spaces. There, learners can share know-how or
discuss courses they have taken, and post comments and links about courses,
videos or podcasts to Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Meridian Global 2013
fully supports the Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) 2004 4th
edition to enable the interoperability of content.
