Learning Center Offers Year-Round Classroom

Mentorware, Inc., a provider of e-learning and knowledge management solutions, has placed Sun Microsystems' JavaOne conference online, allowing the conference to continue indefinitely. Mentorware's e-learning infrastructure powers Sun Microsystems' newly launched Java Learning Center Program, converting the JavaOne conference's technical sessions, which occurred early this year, into an online classroom. Now, more than 300 JavaOne sessions, along with an additional 30 new sessions by speakers who were not in attendance at the event, are available on the Java Learning Center Web site at http://java.sun.com/learning. This perpetual conference enables students to benefit from the learning delivered at the conference without leaving the classroom.

The Mentorware powered and managed site provides student registration, complete e-commerce functionality and personalized learning delivery. The site also offers both audio and visual elements. The classes require only a browser and a Flash 5 plug-in, which can be downloaded for free, is quick to load and runs on multiple platforms.

In addition, Mentorware's experienced content development team has created a process to quickly create over 300 hours of e-learning with content slides, audio, transcripts and illustrations. Mentorware and Sun also plan to localize the top 30 classes in 2hree languages - Japanese, Mandarin and Spanish. Mentorware, Inc., Santa Clara, CA, (408) 566-8800, www.mentorware.com.
