Pathlore and WebEx are also planning to host a free series of web conferences that will explain the benefits of incorporating virtual classroom services into an organization’s learning management strategy. Two Webinars are currently scheduled for July 1, 2004, and July 14, 2004, both sessions will start at 12:30 p.m. ET/9:30 a.m. PT.
By visiting www.pathlore.com/webex, customers can register for the Webinar series during which they’ll learn more about the WebEx trial offer.
“Virtual classrooms – that allow employees, business partners and customers to access training over the Web – are an increasingly attractive and cost-effective vehicle for communicating with a geographically distributed audience,” said Wayne Caccamo, Pathlore’s vice president of marketing. “Our solution sets us apart from our competitors who require an expensive professional services engagement to integrate their learning management system with their customers’ virtual classroom service of choice.”
According to Jeffrey Schmidt, WebEx’s vice president business development and channel sales, “Pathlore’s Virtual Classroom Connector is a quick and easy way to link Pathlore’s extensive learning management functionality with WebEx’s interactive web communications network.”
