GeoLearning to Host E-Learning Platforms for Four Federal Government Agencies
GeoLearning, Inc., a leading developer
of e-learning systems and Web-based training solutions, announced today that
its ASP delivered e-learning platform has been selected to power the e-learning
initiatives of four federal government agencies. The GeoLearning learning management
system will be implemented by the National Institute of Standards & Technology,
National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration, United States Courts and
U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission over the next two months.
We are extremely pleased with our ability to make progress with the federal
government and with such high-profile agencies, said Frank Russell, president
and CEO of GeoLearning. Being chosen as the platform of choice is further
testament to our belief that GeoLearnings hosted e-learning solution provides
both a higher and faster rate of return on investment than client-server installations.
Our ASP delivery model fully leverages the power of the Internet and enables
clients to quickly and cost-effectively begin offering e-learning services to
employees, instead of maintaining IT infrastructure and resources.
The GeoLearning LMS will power the delivery of business skills courseware from
SkillSoft and IT courseware from NETg for all four agencies. The GeoLearning
LMS will track and report information such as the specific courses taken by
a particular student, each students performance in the courses, and the
courses actually completed. With this data managers and supervisors can track
employee progress and assess mastery.
