Agilix GoCourse Learning System Delivers Training for Chinese CIIC

Distributed Virtual Learning System Selected to Deliver Social Learning in China That Includes Online and Offline Access

SHANGHAI, CHINA--(Marketwire - September 9, 2008) - Agilix Labs, Inc., the global leader in distributed learning solutions for virtual schools, announces the deployment of its GoCourse Learning System by China International Intellectech Corp. (CIIC), a key Chinese state-owned enterprise that delivers human resources training directly under the management of the Central Government, PRC.

GoCourse has been selected by CIIC to deliver virtual training that furthers the organization's mission of increasing workforce productivity for the emerging global knowledge-based economy.

"We are advancing the structure and competitiveness of China's service industry to meet the demand for outsourcing and offshore initiatives," said Shi Lei, General Manager at CIIC Shanghai. "GoCourse will allow us to deliver dynamic training that is both scalable and efficient to hundreds of thousands of customers in both online and offline modes."

CIIC, which includes 73 subsidiaries inside and outside of China, has operations in 76 countries. GoCourse was selected to distribute learning materials to clients and employees under disparate network and connectivity environments, including occasionally connected computing.

"We have been studying a variety of course delivery systems to be incorporated into our all-in-one learning and development solution for our corporate clients. Among them, only Agilix' GoCourse Learning System addresses the challenges and needs in highly scalable delivery, effective content protection, flexible course editing, community and collaborative learning, measurable learning results and online and offline access," said Mr. Shi. "CIIC takes pride and pleasure in working together with Agilix to introduce the cutting-edge e-Learning system initiatives to China and looks forward to ongoing partnership with Agilix for further business opportunities in the Human Resources Management arena."

"The Agilix/CIIC solution is a great example of the Agilix international expansion program to support emerging market needs through strong local partners," said Curt Allen, CEO of Agilix Labs, Inc. "Because the Agilix GoCourse Learning System is specifically architected to operate effectively in locations with limited or occasional internet connectivity, it is uniquely capable of delivering a great user experience for learners in these markets."

In addition to China, Agilix is actively seeking partnerships in Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, and other emerging markets.

GoCourse has been customized and localized to address the unique requirements of CIIC, such as the inclusion of student nurturing and social learning through real-time collaboration, support of Simplified Chinese in the user interface, and the delivery of certifications. CIIC is now creating rich multimedia courses and actual certifications that will be delivered later this year using GoCourse Learning System.

GoCourse Learning System, which is now in its 2.5 released version, is a distributed social learning platform that delivers individualized instruction for distance and online education and training initiatives around the world. GoCourse is the only available solution with the 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.
