Futuremedia Learning Launches Next Generation Learning Portal for Bupa
Date:4/21/2008

BRIGHTON, England, April 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Futuremedia Learning, a leading e-learning provider and a division of Futuremedia plc (OTC Bulletin Board: FMDAY), has launched Performance Zone, a next generation personalised learning environment, for Bupa, the global health and care organisation.

The launch took place at Bupa offices in Manchester and Staines in the UK, with Futuremedia Learning staff on-site offering support and overviews of the portal's features to Bupa employees. Performance Zone will be used by 3,200 staff in Bupa's UK Membership Services division and builds on the success of the company's existing Futuremedia-designed e-learning portal, PLATO.

Performance Zone is the first client implementation of Futuremedia Learning's new learning portal product, which uses innovative Web 2.0 widget technology to provide a highly personalised learning experience.

Performance Zone is divided into five 'zones': My Zone, Perform, Inform, Transform and Extras. Each of the zones is made up of widgets, which allow learners to view their learning in bite-sized pieces and to customise their user interface in a similar way to Google's iGoogle.

Each zone provides the employees with different aspects of learning from career planning and progression to improving skills in their current roles, and provides a direct link to the learning library and Learning Management System, also provided by Futuremedia.

"The launch of Performance Zone went extremely well with more than treble the usual number of learners logging on in just one day! We are very proud of the site. Thank you to the Futuremedia team," said Clare Shell, e-HR Consultant of Bupa.

Andrea Miles, Managing Director of Futuremedia Learning said, "Futuremedia has a history of innovation in learning and we are proud to be unveiling this pioneering use of widget technology to enable a highly personalised learning environment. It has been great to work in partnership with such a forward-looking client who has responded to our ideas enthusiastically and has been prepared to stretch the envelope. The success of this launch is a tribute to their belief and passion for learning."

Images of the launch are available upon request.
