September 5, 2001

ComputerPREP, a division of ProsoftTraining (Nasdaq:POSO), today announced the immediate availability of 372 new e-learning products.

The addition of a comprehensive library of e-learning courses makes ComputerPREP the single-source provider of IT education and training materials for every learning style. ComputerPREP now offers individuals, schools, colleges, training centers and corporations one of the world’s largest libraries of classroom, Web-based, computer-based, distance learning and self-study curriculum.

ComputerPREP products cover all training modalities with a consistent look and feel and solid instructional design. Customers can seamlessly combine products from different categories to create blended learning solutions designed to meet their unique requirements. All ComputerPREP products are available for individual purchase or licensing by an entire organization through

The 372 new ComputerPREP 2GO e-learning products are available in both computer-based and Web-based formats to accommodate a variety of schedules and technical requirements. Individuals can load a CD-ROM onto a laptop or PC and learn at any time, in any location — without an Internet connection.

For online learners, the ComputerPREP 2GO Web-based courses provide a convenient and easy vehicle for users to access a curriculum from any computer at the office, at home or on the road. This new product category complements the already comprehensive library of ComputerPREP course materials.

Now more people can benefit from the features of ComputerPREP products: intuitive navigation, consistent look and feel, and strong course design implementing learning principles that “tell, show, let and test.”

The rapid growth of the e-learning market has been well documented. For example, IDC predicts that the online training market will nearly double in size every year through 2003, reaching approximately $11.5 billion by that time.

After an exclusive preview by BrainBuzz of two MCSE course titles in the ComputerPREP 2GO computer-based series, the courses earned four out of five stars in a product review.

“The ComputerPREP 2GO Series are solid training products that offer an excellent combination of detailed information, student interactivity and flexible self-paced instruction,” said Aaron Axline, technical editor for BrainBuzz. ComputerPREP 2GO self-study materials for CIW and A+ also earned high marks from BrainBuzz. To view the product reviews, visit:

Educators and corporate trainers can use this new suite of e-learning products in tandem with ComputerPREP instructor-led and self-study materials to blend e-learning with a classroom environment or provide extra tools for learning outside the classroom.

The new ComputerPREP 2GO e-learning library creates content parity across all learning modalities by covering the same courses, job roles and certification topics as the existing library. Individuals and organizations can study foundational topics such as computer basics and desktop applications and can progress to high-end technical topics such as Java, security and database design.

“ComputerPREP clearly offers the greatest selection in both course titles and modes of delivery with the high quality that has made ComputerPREP the IT content provider of choice,” said Julie Rowe, vice president of products and programs for ComputerPREP and ProsoftTraining. “With all of these products immediately available, ComputerPREP meets the needs of any IT learner or educator.”
