The College Network Launches New Online Resource Center With Interactive Content Compatible With All Learning Styles

Innovative Curriculum Includes 67 Learning Modules Written by Professors and Designed to Be More Efficiently Retained Through Dynamic Self-Paced Interaction

INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwire - February 12, 2010) - The College Network™ is proud to announce the development of its new online Resource Center™, which now includes 67 courses in the form of its Comprehensive Learning Modules™ which are designed to help customers secure college credits toward various degree programs. This dynamic system was designed to better support various learning styles and to allow learners to interact in a more meaningful manner with their course content. In this new environment, learners will be able to locate the exact information they need to study more efficiently.

"This Resource Center was designed with adult learners in mind," said Carla A. Downing, Ph.D., Vice President of Product Development and Academic Support. "We have taken what is known about learning styles, cognitive styles, instructional design and learning management systems and created an environment that caters specifically to adults who need self-paced instruction."

Following extensive research into how different types of learners process and retain information, The College Network enhanced the user experience with added features such as an embedded calendar to make it easy to set reminders and deadlines, the ability to chat live with academic support specialists, interactive key terms for improved memorization, end-of-chapter review questions and answers with immediate feedback and practice exams designed to help increase customers' comfort level with computer-based testing before taking equivalency exams.

"The launch of this new platform is part of our continued effort to improve the resources we offer our customers," commented Gary Eyler, Owner and Chief Executive Officer of The College Network. "The Resource Center will allow people to learn wherever and whenever their schedule allows, while still providing them with easily accessible academic support. This is one more step The College Network is taking in our commitment to helping busy adults achieve their education and career goals."

The College Network develops Comprehensive Learning Modules delivered online through its Resource Center to help customers pass end-of-course college equivalency exams, including CLEP®, DSST®, and Excelsior College® Exams. Credits earned can be transferred to thousands of universities nationwide, including The College Network's partner universities.
