SINGAPORE, 24 May 2000 -- IBM launched its newly formed e-learning solutions business unit, IBM Mindspan Solutions, aimed at providing customers with the capability to plan for, create, and deploy e-learning solutions. IBM Mindspan Solutions delivers a full array of e-learning solutions which include planning and design services, content capabilities, technologies, and delivery capabilities.

It hopes to leverage on IBM's experience, technologies and worldwide reach to offer solutions focused on mission-critical learning needs. It would be utilizing dedicated e-learning specialists and an experienced set of worldwide service resources, that would include more than 3,400 service practitioners and 15 facilities around the world.


"Unlike many of the 'point-solutions' in the marketplace today, IBM Mindspan Solutions meets these customers' requirements by providing not only a comprehensive set of e-learning capabilities but service practitioners who are skilled in delivering e-learning solutions worldwide."

- Laura Sanders
Vice President
IBM Mindspan Solutions


According to Laura Sanders, vice president of IBM Mindspan Solutions, customers demand an integrated solution as opposed to smaller components they have to piece together themselves. And because effective learning requires various learning modes, customers demand flexible technology platforms that support these delivery modes. Finally, customers want solutions that provide measurable business results.

Unlike distance learning, e-learning is focused specifically on the delivery of learning content via all electronic media including the Internet, intranet, extranet, satellite, broadcast, audio/videotape, interactive TV and CD-ROM.


"LearningSpace has not only proved effective in delivering training but has also increased staff productivity as it does not interfere with the employee's work schedule...Besides, it enables the preservation and sharing of knowledge and experience among our employees."

- Thomas Chiu
Training Administration Director
Acer Global Institute of Education
Singapore


According to IDC, the e-learning marketplace is expected to exceed $15b worldwide by the end of 2002. Customers are dramatically increasing investments in e-learning to capitalize on the opportunities afforded by the Web as well as exploiting e-learning to meet these business needs.
