MMS News – March 2016

Get started with Vision

Vision is our new web-based dashboard and reporting tool. When your school has Vision, you put the power of data in your educator’s hands. Timely information, presented in meaningful ways, on any device, means that teachers, staff, and administrators can do their jobs with confidence.

Vision provides insight into ANY data system your district uses, correlated with your MMS:

  • Create charts, tables, and other visualizations of school and district data
  • Save and manage visualizations in a library for easy reuse
  • Combine visualizations into publishable dashboards
  • Publish reports that can be shared with specific groups
  • Schedule reports for automatic generation and distribution

Webinar Subscription FAQs:

How can I register for a MMS Training Webinar?

Visit the webinar registration calendar on our website.

How much does it cost to attend a MMS training webinar?
When you have a MMS Unlimited Webinar Subscription, you may attend MMS webinars at absolutely no additional cost. Without a MMS Unlimited Webinar Subscription, there is a charge for each connection. MMS Unlimited Webinar Subscriptions start at $900 per year.

If I have a MMS Unlimited Webinar Subscription, what should I do when the website displays a fee when I register?
Because of your special status, this can simply be ignored. Whenever you register for a MMS training webinar, we will ensure that your subscription is valid. If so, we send you connection details by email to confirm your registration. If you have a subscription, you would have received an email entitled, “Unlimited Webinar Subscription Credentials,” that contains your username and password information.
