LatitudeLearning Gives Back by Helping Jibu

7/26/2017 - Posted by Sara Trzemzalski

Jibu, a start-up that franchises safe drinking water stores in Eastern Africa, stands out in the Franchise Industry by combining business ownership, independence and helping others that truly need it with human necessities. At a previous franchise conference, Latitude’s CEO Jeff Walters met with Jibu’s Co-Founder and CEO, Galen Welsch, during lunch and found himself impressed and inspired with Jibu’s vision. “What Jibu is doing is unlike anything I’ve seen and that’s why I wanted to give them a membership to show our support and that I believe in what they’re doing. Our LMS handles the unique needs of various business channels and was confident it could help Jibu’s team continue to grow internationally. We are always looking for ways to give back and this was the perfect opportunity to act.”

Successful Growing with Weed Man’s Training

6/29/2017 - Posted by Sara Trzemzalski

According to Jenifer Lemcke, Chief Operating Officer of Weed Man USA, training is the root to success and we couldn’t agree more. As one of the largest franchisors and sold out territories in Canada, Weed Man was ecstatic to transition to the United States franchise market. Since then, they’ve been growing like weeds and they owe it all to their training during the onboarding process and ongoing education available for their franchisees. Weed Man is well-known for providing environmentally responsible fertilization, weed control and integrated pest management services. Initially, new franchisees will travel to Toronto, Canada to experience nine days of critical training.

LMS Roadmap: Student UI Prototype & New Admin Functionality

6/23/2017 - Posted by Tom Merritt

Last month we launched a click-through prototype to illustrate our design concepts for a new student experience with the LMS. You can see our approach to the next generation UI for the LMS: an extended use of icons, a completely new and refreshing approach to page layout and a responsive design that we think our clients will really appreciate. In addition, we have just completed a revision of some of the administrative interface. Some of our clients had informed us that they wanted to delegate more day-to-day management to the administrator role instead of having the portal administrator do all the work. To accomplish this, we implemented a new approach for several tools in the system, including Changing Quick User Search, Change the "Deactivate" button and Pre-populate the advanced user search page.
