QA uses Learn on Demand Systems platform to solve security scare for one of the world’s largest financial institutions

One of QA’s main goals is to be the United Kingdom’s most trusted training provider. So, when one of the world’s largest financial institutions reached out to the QA team for help, they were all ears.

The result is the ability to utilize a variety of ways to check knowledge throughout a lab.

Creating activities within labs helps to keep your students more involved in the learning process, taking knowledge retention to […]

The Announcements feature has had a major overhaul in functionality and appearance. You now have much more flexibility to control how, where, and when announcements are seen. Here are a few examples: 1) prioritize announcements as mandatory, high, or normal; 2) set them to open in their own pop-up tied to a TMS page, and 3) expire them or completely remove them on set dates from the newly renamed Message Center. In addition, changes have been made to how announcements look and how users access them. More on these changes later.
