From ideation through implementation, Meridian is focused solely on learning. Meridian LMS provides deep functionality that meets the complex requirements of any organization, regardless of industry and deployment needs.
Meridian LMS 17.3 release highlights include:
Training Assignments, formerly Required Training, received significant updates to the workflow of assigning content to users. Multiple content items can now be assigned to multiple entity types (users, orgs, groups, jobs, etc.). Scheduling due dates and allowing for past completions is now easier. Training assignments can be saved in draft mode prior to assigning them to users.
Improvements to classroom search and action section management allow easier and more intuitive management of course sections. Improvements include easier administrator search, changes to the section details tab, updates to section enrollment, and more efficient navigation between section details and instructor tools.
Next Generation Surveys:
Survey creation, management, UI and reporting have been revamped to existing surveys. Surveys now include branching type questions and provide better analytics.
Conduct custom messaging using a web-enabled resource (URL) and removes the need for resource-expensive polling, slow-and-bulky scheduled exports, or product extensions. Administrators can use information pushed by Webhooks to automate reports and flag critical learning events in their applications.
Microsoft Azure Active Directory AD Support:
Meridian LMS now supports user provisioning and Single Sign-On (SSO) authentication from Azure AD. Administrators can access user access with Microsoft applications like Office 365. New group provisioning and user group membership capabilities facilitate the use of bulk training assignments.
“Our 17.3 release focuses on refining usability for power users. The Meridian survey engine received a complete facelift. Functional improvements were added to training assignments and classroom section management. We also added two new powerful integrations that will enable LMS administrators to customize and automate eLearning processes.”
