Virtual Ed Link to Release Initial Internet Security Course

FAIRFIELD, NJ--(Marketwire - January 20, 2010) - Virtual Ed Link, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: VRED) -- Dr. Alan McCartney, COO of Virtual Ed Link ( announced today its plans to include an Internet Security Online eLearning Course as part of its integrated Safety and Security Management System (SSMS).

The FCC has proposed web-safety education. Schools and libraries receiving federal e-Rate funding would have to submit proof that they have implemented internet safety education programs along with their e-Rate applications, according to a new Notice of Proposed Rulemaking issued by the Federal Communications Commission. This was a major topic of discussion at the Annual Joint Education Association Convention in Atlantic City attended by approximately 10,000 school board members, school administrators and school business officials. They jointly represent the education and related health and safety interests of New Jersey's 1.4 million public school students.

Virtual Ed Link, in conjunction with WISE eLearning Solutions, is currently developing this on-line (web based) course for adults. This version of the course (60 minutes) is designed for parents, grandparents, and legal guardians responsible for the safety and well-being of children. This course will provide them with a better understanding of how children are using the Internet and will assist them in dealing with Internet-related threats. They will learn how to monitor their child's online activities, how to block certain types of content, and employ safe computing practices.

"The eLearning component continues to be an integral part of the SSMS product suite," stated Dr. Alan McCartney. "With the addition of the Internet Security courseware, not only are we the premier safety provider for school and private environments, we have now extended our reach into the family and community as well."

Virtual Ed Link management believes the new courseware will be available for release in early March and ready for deployment to schools and organizations nationally. The student version is slated for development and release at a later date.

The integration of eLearning, a world class notification system and the ability to continually receive up-to-date data, clearly puts Virtual Ed Link into a leadership role in technology devoted to the protection and safety of school children and communities throughout the United States.
