Sunrise, FL (PRWEB) February 23, 2006
Learn.com®, the leader in creating and projecting power-on-demand e-learning, today announced that the company is launching a $50 Million software grant program in continued support of the National Education Technology Plan, announced in January of 2005 by the U.S. Department of Education. The 2006 Grant Program follows a very successful program in 2005 in which Learn.com donated $40 Million in software and services to academic institutions throughout the United States.
The Learn.com Software Grant will assist American educational institutions with their efforts to bring e-learning to their campuses while extending their reach using the world wide web. Eligible institutions include; K-12, colleges, universities, and vocational schools based in the United States. The Software Grant recipients will receive individual user licenses to the Learn.com CourseMaker Studio 3.7 course authoring tool, an award-winning rapid e-learning development tool.
“Learn.com is dedicated to strengthening America’s global competitiveness by improving the quality of education both in the classroom and online regardless of the size of the institution. We believe that providing cutting edge tools to promote lifelong learning through the proper academic channels can help build strong, educated communities,” said Jim Riley President and CEO of Learn.com. “We believe that facilitating these institutions’ ability to extend programs to e-learning based delivery will allow them to leverage already overtaxed assets including faculty and facilities.”
“Too often, because of budgetary constraints, institutions are not able to gain access to proper state-of-the-art technology which in turn plays a large part in how America teaches. A quality and diversified educational experience is the foundation for developing global economic growth and opportunity. We believe that the proper application of technology will expedite America’s educational excellence ” said JW Ray Chief Operating Officer of Learn.com.
According to the Untied States Department of Education, “The Administration believes schools should use technology as a tool to improve academic achievement, and that using the latest technology in the classroom should not be an end unto itself.” (http://www.ed.gov)
“The Learn.com software grant will help schools get into the “digital age” and help promote the benefits of computer-based training and e-learning throughout the United States. Public and private schools will now have the opportunity to create high end, multi-media instruction for students to boost test scores in compliance with the No Child Left Behind Legislation,” said Don Cook Senior Vice President of Marketing at Learn.com.
