QBInternational Offers Help for Teacher Training to Boost 'No Child Left Behind' Law

Keys to federal compliance may mean No Teacher Left Behind

LARKSPUR, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 5, 2006 -- QBInternational (www.qube.com) announces the release of its innovative Qube™ for Teachers, an online platform for creating customizable, game-based learning modules for teachers and faculty. Already in use by San Diego Unified School District and San Francisco Unified School District, the Qube for Teachers provides customizable game-based learning at a fraction of the cost of alternative customizable interactive learning options. This system can be used for rapidly creating fun, interactive training on any subject, including classroom curricula subjects, policies, procedures, best practices, emergency preparedness, and other knowledge transfer topics.

Recent reports indicate that many states face the loss of federal aid because of failure to comply with the 4-year-old 'No Child Left Behind' Law requiring teachers to have a bachelor's degree, a state license and proven competency in every subject they teach by this year. The first federal order of its kind, it applies to teachers of core classes such as math and history. Many states have shown substantial progress but still face required improvements and must submit a new plan of action.

The Qube for Teachers is a training aid for school districts seeking a fast, cost-effective learning tool that has a proven retention level 4 to 10 times higher than traditional customizable online learning options. Custom modules can be developed for 5% to 10% of the cost of other online interactive learning forms. Teacher and faculty game scores can be used to assess knowledge, certify compliance with mandated programs, even provide customized certification. School management can track learning by individual, grade level, subject matter expertise, school, district, region, or even state.

"Corporations have been using the game-based Qube for years to train their workforces," stated Andrew Kimball, CEO of QBInternational. "Now we have produced a version specifically tailored for use by schools at any grade level. It is affordable and easy to customize to any subject matter. It produces rapid, measurable results. And there's no extra charge for the fun."

The Qube -- Serious Games, Real Learning

The Qube for Teachers is built on the proven Qube Learning System (The Qube™), a hosted, game-based learning platform for creating engaging, effective, interactive online learning modules.
