PRNewswire: Prometheus Wins Competition to Provide Online Software For Vanderbilt UniversitySep 22, 2000, 22:31 (0 Talkback[s])
"Vanderbilt University has chosen Prometheus, an Internet-based online course software product developed at The George Washington University, to deliver online course management for students, faculty and staff. The selection followed testing of Prometheus and WebCt over a semester by faculty, who overwhelmingly chose to use Prometheus in development of online courses."
"Prometheus was selected because it is easy to use, flexible, scalable and cost-effective. "Prometheus requires very little hand-holding of faculty and integrates very easily with our existing systems," says William Longwell, director of Vanderbilt's Microcomputing Laboratory."
"Prometheus is a product of Intuitive Networks, a subsidiary of The George Washington University, located in Washington, D.C. In 1997, a team at GWU began to develop their own online learning software because the available software was not as easy to use, flexible, or scalable as faculty and students at a major university needed. As a result, the team created Prometheus, a scalable software that is based on a Cold Fusion application layer and is licensed with open-source code -- spurring online education development nationwide."
