<p><strong>Sunrise, Fla. &mdash; Aug. 22 </strong><br />Learn.com, a provider of on-demand workforce development and productivity, has launched its third software grant program in as many years to promote the use of e-learning and distance education in American academia and nonprofits in tandem with the start of the 2007-&#39;08 school year. </p><p>The 2007 Grant Program follows a successful program in 2006, in which Learn.com donated $50 million in software licenses to academic institutions throughout the United States. </p><p>This year&rsquo;s grant program has been expanded by popular demand to include nonprofit organizations. </p><p>&ldquo;With the new academic year upon us, we are all once again reminded of the importance of education to our country&rsquo;s future,” said Jim Riley, president and CEO. “It is incumbent upon all of us to do everything in our power to insure that U.S. schools are able to produce graduates that are ready to compete in an increasingly global economy. </p><p>”We at Learn.com believe that the adoption of appropriate technology in our educational system is critical, yet too often budget constraints weaken our academic institutions&rsquo; ability to research and implement those technologies and methods. We are dedicated to strengthening America&rsquo;s education system, which ultimately impacts the country&rsquo;s global competitiveness.&rdquo;<br /><br />The Learn.com Software Grant will assist U.S. educational institutions with their efforts to bring e-learning to their campuses while extending their reach using the Interent and nonprofits, which often suffer from funding inefficiencies.  </p><p>&ldquo;As the industry leader, it is our duty to provide the tools needed to improve the quality of education both in the classroom and online regardless of the size of the institution,” Riley said. “We are hopeful that Learn.com&rsquo;s grant program will help to promote lifelong learning and help build strong, educated communities.&rdquo; </p>
