Agilix and AtlasBITS Launch GoCourse Learning System in Puerto Rico

GoCourse Is First and Only Distributed Learning System Available to Schools and Institutions in Puerto Rico

MAYAGUEZ, PUERTO RICO--(Marketwire - July 9, 2008) - Agilix Labs, Inc., the global leader in personalized distributed learning solutions, announced a strategic relationship with AtlasBITS, an education solutions provider in Puerto Rico, to sell its GoCourse Learning System. AtlasBITS is the first Agilix Certified Partner in Puerto Rico to offer GoCourse and related services to schools and school systems in Latin America.

The announcement refers to an agreement that gives AtlasBITS the ability to sell, integrate with, and deliver GoCourse to schools and organizations that want to improve learning effectiveness and help students gain 21st century skills.

"We are pleased to have Agilix as one of our strategic partners. We firmly believe GoCourse is able to play an important role in our School Advanced Academic System (SAAS) solution strategy to provide educational institutions, professional associations and corporations in Puerto Rico and other markets," said Julio Pamias Portalatín, president and CEO of AtlasBITS.

"GoCourse Learning System is a powerful and flexible platform that allows teachers and students to have a great teaching and learning experience in both online and offline situations. Our customers will benefit through the integration of GoCourse with SAAS for course creation, delivery and measurement in both online and offline scenarios. GoCourse Learning System will help students develop 21st century skills without the need for persistent broadband Internet access," said Julio Pamias.

GoCourse Learning System, which is now in its 2.0 released version, is a distributed online learning platform designed to address the needs of distance and online education and training around the world. GoCourse is the only available solution with online and offline capabilities that enable anytime, anywhere learning, even when Internet connectivity is extremely limited or completely unavailable. The distributed delivery model effectively eliminates the challenges related to connectivity and bandwidth that plague other course delivery systems.

"We believe AtlasBITS is one of the most innovative solutions providers in the education market in Latin America. We are honored that they have chosen to make GoCourse part of the solution they provide to the customers they serve," said Curt Allen, Agilix CEO.

"Educational institutions and training organizations, and corporations need flexibility and efficiency when it comes to online learning. We are pleased to partner with AtlasBITS to provide a powerful new learning solution to schools and institutions that need the benefits of fully distributed learning," said Allen.

GoCourse Learning System improves the lives of instructors and students. The solution provides the tools that allow any instructor to create and deliver rich and engaging learning content with minimal effort. Instead of publishing learning materials as a series of links and text in a browser, GoCourse delivers entire courses inline as a series of engaging learning experiences. The combination of dynamic templates and simple drag-and-drop assembly methods supports the creation of study materials, quizzes and assessments and learning activities that are accessed through either an Internet browser or an installed software client.

Once learning materials are assembled, GoCourse Learning System delivers the content as a series of interactive and media-rich learning experiences, tracking both performance and time spent on each learning activity.

GoCourse's distributed learning model provides students with access to anywhere, anytime learning that expands the concept of the classroom to include anywhere the student has access to the instructional materials, even when Internet access may not be available.
