Serebra Becomes First to Link E-Learning to Jobs

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - July 11, 2007) - Serebra Learning Corporation (TSX-V: SLC), a leading e-learning provider, today announced it has created the first online platform to combine e-learning with access to jobs on a global scale -- Serebra Connect™.

Serebra Connect is due to launch on October 31, 2007. It provides a solution to a challenge highlighted by Serebra's experience as an e-learning provider: how to connect e-learning students around the world to jobs when there may be a lack of work opportunities in their home countries.

Serebra's president and CEO, Ted Moorhouse, said, "For more than 20 years, Serebra's e-learning solutions have broken down the barriers that often prevent people in less developed nations from gaining an education and learning new skills. Serebra allows students around the world to take courses without leaving home.

"However, education alone is not enough. People must be able to use their skills to benefit themselves, their families and their countries, without having to leave to find a job."

Moorhouse believes Serebra Connect is the logical next step. "Serebra Connect makes excellent use of new Internet technologies to offer training, skills validation and instant access to jobs to people everywhere," he said. "Through the Internet, Serebra Connect gives businesses access to a global pool of skilled 'micro-taskers' who are capable of completing the small tasks they want to outsource."

Serebra Connect enables Serebra-accredited service providers to connect and collaborate online with small and medium-sized businesses that need to outsource specific business tasks. Service providers can bid on the tasks that relate to their skills and qualifications, with buyers awarding tasks to their preferred bidders.

In addition, Serebra Connect promotes worldwide Individual and Corporate Social Responsibility by using the Internet to provide high-quality education and employment opportunities to people who need them most.

"Serebra Connect can benefit not only its users -- the service providers and the businesses that hire them -- but society as a whole," said Moorhouse. "The platform will help foster a culture of education and training on a global scale, as well as increasing the productivity of businesses that want to outsource small tasks.

"Serebra believes the future of e-learning and online outsourcing depends on connecting education with access to jobs. And, with our long track record of providing e-learning solutions to clients and partners worldwide, Serebra is uniquely placed to make this happen."
