Free Webinar From Tagoras and Meridian Helps Associations Choose Right LMS 
HERNDON, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/01/13 --  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
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
