Has your annual meeting attendance fell flat?
Is your association searching for new ways to generate non-dues revenue, increase member engagement and add value to your membership?
Are you considering taking your continuing education, professional development and credentialing programs online?
Here are the Top 5 reasons associations and nonprofits are partnering with Digitec Interactive to provide their members online education using the Knowledge Direct Learning Management System (LMS) for Associations:
Knowledge Direct LMS for Associations is one of the most powerful and robust learning management systems available, with:
• Built-in content authoring,
• Real time reporting, and

“Our need for a convenient, time-efficient, cost effective solution for online staff development was found in the Knowledge Direct platform.” – Tracy Choate, Technology Facilitator, Bossier Parish Schools
Knowledge Direct has one of the cleanest, easiest to use, administrative interfaces, out of any system we’ve seen.” – Jeff Cobb, Tagoras learning management consultants.
Perhaps one of the most important traits in any learning management system is the platform’s ease of use. Many learning management systems (LMSs) and legacy systems are overly complex. Knowledge Direct was designed with one key concept in mind, “keep it simple.”
Non-technical content managers can quickly develop self-paced learning and assign the eLearning modules to blended courses that can include:
• Live and recorded webinars,
• Live and recorded conference sessions,
• Discussion boards,
• Videos, and much more.
Administrators can easily monitor learner progress, run advanced reports on course completion, credits earned, participation, learning gains, progress towards certifications and much, much more — without the aid of programmers, database administrators, or other technical personnel.
