About Prometheus

Prometheus is a community-based, open architecture software platform that meets the online

needs of educational institutions and is backed by The George Washington

University in Washington, DC. In

1997, a team at GW began to develop their own online learning software because

the available software was not as easy to use, flexible, or scalable as faculty

and students at a major university needed. As a result, the team created

Prometheus, a scalable software based on proven technologies such as leading

databases from Oracle and Microsoft as well as an open source code application

built in ColdFusion. Other leading institutions that have adopted this proven,

scalable technology include The Wharton School, Teachers College at Columbia

University, The New School, The University of Wisconsin Learning Innovations,

University of Michigan College of Engineering, and United States Open
