July 2, 2002

GeoLearning, Inc., a leading developer of e-learning systems and Web-based training solutions, announced today that it has successfully integrated Placeware’s web conferencing tool with its Geo Learning Center™ and GeoExpress™ learning management systems. GeoLearning will now market PlaceWare’s web conferencing tool as a component of comprehensive e-learning solutions for corporate, government and education clients.

“Whether it’s marketing, sales, training or just making meetings more effective, PlaceWare’s web conferencing can help our clients reduce costs, accelerate response times and deliver results immediately,” said Frank Russell, president and CEO of GeoLearning. “The integration delivers great value to clients because they can now schedule, track and report on synchronous events, asynchronous courses and other learning and development activities using a single LMS and e-learning platform.

The first integration between Placeware and GeoLearning was implemented for El Segundo, CA-based International Rectifier Corporation (NYSE: IRF), a leading supplier of power semiconductors and power management advanced circuits.
