Media1st™ Launches the First Video-Powered eLearning Library

September 18, 2001

Media1st, Inc. announced today the launch of the first video-powered eLearning library for the iNstruct™ platform, the company’s interactive learning environment. Media1st is proud to offer video-enabled courses from the nation’s top eLearning content providers, such as The University of Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business, CRM Learning,, The MARCOM Group, and The PAR Group. Because of these partnerships, Media1st’s customers can now rapidly deploy a video eLearning solution complete with a library of popular training titles.

“These new course titles are a great compliment to the custom content production Media1st offers our enterprise customers,” said Tom Doty, CEO and president of Media1st. “They allow our iNstruct clients to hit the ground running with a combination of their own custom courses and top notch training titles.”

Media1st adapts training content from partners’ courseware in existing formats and transforms these courses into an online interactive video experience for the student. The iNstruct platform provides a more efficient course distribution method than traditional methods such as CD-ROM and videotape. Content partners rely on Media1st’s video and web expertise to transform existing courses into truly engaging online experiences.

“We selected Media1st to video-enable our content because iNstruct is the one platform that can fully showcase our courses,” states Leo Burke, Associate Dean & Director of Executive Education at the University of Notre Dame. “ iNstruct’s media-rich features and interactivity allow us to bring our instructors right to the desktop. It’s the best combination of the traditional classroom and the power of the Internet.”

Course categories currently available include such popular offerings as compliance training, sales & marketing, safety training, certification in regulated industries, business and professional development and academics.
