GeoLearning, Inc., a leading developer of e-learning systems and Web-based training solutions, has announced that its ASP-delivered e-learning platform has been selected to power online training for the United States Department of Housing & Urban Development as well as eight other government agencies.

The Geo Learning e-learning delivery platform will deliver, track and report data on business skills, computer desktop training and IT skills courseware for 10,000 HUD employees.

In the first quarter of 2002, GeoLearning also secured e-learning platform contracts with the National Institute of Standards & Technology, National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration, U.S. Courts, U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and the National Association of Counties, Insurance Fraud Prevention Authority, North Carolina Department of Labor and the Arkansas Department of Parks & Tourism.

"I believe our success in the government arena can be attributed to three distinct characteristics of our application service provider delivery model," said Frank Russell, president and CEO of GeoLearning. "Using the ASP model we deliver clients ease of implementation, ease-of-use and unsurpassed reliability."

Russell adds that with no hardware or software to install, the company's Geo Learning CenterT and GeoExpressT platforms can be implemented in days, giving clients the power to launch AICC and SCORM-compliant courseware, deliver synchronous events, track learner progress and measure learning results.

Another decisive factor for GeoLearning's success in the federal government space is their system's compliance with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, which provides for equal accessibility by people with disabilities.
