Deloitte Consulting selects Click2Learn’s Aspen Platform for Content Development

April 10, 2002

Click2learn (NASDAQ: CLKS) today announced that

Deloitte Consulting has selected the Aspen Content Development Server™ to develop

content for some of its clients’ training initiatives.

Deloitte Consulting will use Aspen’s LCMS capabilities primarily to create

interactive and reusable course content, or learning objects, for its global

client base.

"Using Aspen, we’ll be able to rapidly develop custom web-based training

content for our clients," said Leigh Kelleher, principal, Deloitte Consulting.

"Our decision to use Click2learn’s Aspen was made after an extensive review

of their technology, corporate direction, and organizational capabilities, all

of which demonstrated a strong position in the e-Learning industry and synergy

with the Deloitte Consulting approach."

Using Aspen LCMS technology, Deloitte Consulting’s developers and subject matter

experts will be able to collaboratively create interactive content based on

reusable learning objects. This modular content allows course content and materials

to be developed much more quickly — dramatically reducing the time and

costs associated with creating and managing content for large-scale learning

programs. This is especially useful for customizing learning tracks according

to the unique learning requirements of different divisions or geographic regions.

The resulting content, which complies with the latest SCORM standards, is compatible

with any SCORM-compliant learning management system.

In addition, Deloitte Consulting will use Aspen to catalogue a large library

of existing learning content – including Word® and PowerPoint® documents

and ToolBookTM e-Learning modules. By bringing this content into a central repository,

it can be added to searchable knowledge bases and shared with colleagues to

streamline the content development process.

"We’re pleased to see Aspen used as an LCMS backbone for Deloitte Consulting’s

training and performance support practices. As the e-Learning market evolves,

and the scope of projects increase, we expect to see more corporations working

with trusted consultants for their strategic e-Learning programs," said

Kevin Oakes, chairman and CEO of Click2learn. "Our affiliation with Deloitte

Consulting, one of the most trusted business consultant firms in the world,

will provide us with an important channel to expand our LCMS technology within

the Global 2000 marketplace."
