TEC Analyst Observations on Meridian Global LMS 2011

By comparing  the  Meridian Global LMS to the  average  of competitors in the  LMS space, it’s clear in which areas  this product  serves its customers  well. Not only are these  areas  Meridian Global LMS’s strengths, but  they  are  also  considered   to  be  some  of the  more  important elements   in an  LMS, according  to industry best  practices. When considering  an LMS solution, companies  should  consider these elements as “must have” or “critical need” modules.
Meridian Globals’ .NET architecture  is highly flexible and customizable  without changing  core code. Its agnosticism  with regard  to content authoring  and  virtual classrooms may be a wise choice when  so many tools are available to satisfy these requirements.  Read more
