After implementing the Meridian Global learning management system last spring, Money Management International (M.M.I.), America’s largest nonprofit, full-service credit counseling agency, has added an array of online education courses to its line-up of instructor-led classes for managing personal finance.
Since April, the Meridian LMS has delivered M.M.I. clients a list of online courses covering topics such as budgeting, financial goal-setting and managing credit.
According to M.M.I. director of instructional management Amy Lins, the company has put a great deal of effort into making its online courses interactive and interesting. “Our online courses aren’t just bullet points on a page; far from it,” said Lins. “One of the first clients to take our new online education said she was ‘motivated to make changes and learned a lot of tips on how to reduce expenses and change habits.’”
