GeoLearning to Host E-Learning Platforms for Four Federal Government Agencies

February 7, 2002

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 GeoLearning’s 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 student’s performance in the courses, and the

courses actually completed. With this data managers and supervisors can track

employee progress and assess mastery.
