    McLEAN, Va., Oct. 1
    /PRNewswire/ -- NETg and UOL Publishing Inc. UOLP , both
    leaders in corporate training and development, have
    announced an authorized reseller agreement, whereby UOL
    will market, license and distribute NETg's library of
    more than 400 interactive media-based training
    courses. NETg's content, focusing on information
    technology and computer desktop applications, will be
    distributed in North America via UOL's VCampus delivery
    system.

    According to Nat Kannan, Chief Executive
    Officer of UOL, the NETg deal follows UOL's market
    strategy of consolidating quality content under the UOL
    banner. "The NETg content is particularly attractive to
    us because of its recognized quality and its focus
    on real world job skills. Together the combination
    of NETg's content with UOL's on-line delivery,
    administration and reporting creates a powerful combination."
    said Kannan.

    "VCampus is an ideal delivery
    mechanism for NETg's training content," said John Kluska,
    director of marketing for NETg. "UOL has provided a user-
    friendly, Web-based learning environment that focuses not
    only on the needs of the end user, but provides a
    logical and easy-to-implement tool for companies to chart
    and monitor their overall education/training
    program."

    The NETg agreement is the largest content
    partnership that UOL has struck this year. This winning
    partnership ensures UOL's impressive customer base access to
    NETg's library of high quality content. The NETg course
    offerings will double the size of UOL's current Information
    Technology Training Library which ranges from programming to
    networking. The Company's total library now consists of more
    than 900 course titles, specializing in Information
    Technology, Telecommunication and other general Management
    courses.

    NETg content fully utilizes a "learn by
    doing" training approach, offering students the
    industry's highest level of interactive simulations for
    students to learn and practice skill-based concepts.
    NETg's unique Precision Learning(TM) feature allows each
    student to assess their existing skill level and "test
    out" of familiar areas, targeting only the topics
    where skills are lacking. Information Technology
    training ranges from programming to networking, and
    includes subjects such as Oracle, Microsoft's Windows NT
    and BackOffice, Visual Basic, Novell NetWare, Lotus
    Notes, HTML, Java and dozens more. Desktop application
    topics include Microsoft Windows 95, Microsoft Office
    97, Office 95, Lotus 1-2-3, WordPerfect, SAP and many
    others.

      global leader in technology-based training,today
      announced that it will merge operations with
      GartnerLearning following that company's acquisition by NETg
      parent, Harcourt General.
      "This transaction brings
      together the brightest professionals, the strongest
      productoffering and the most complete service capabilities of any
      training organization in the market today," said Gary
      Lopez, president and CEO of NETg. "The combination of
      NETg and GartnerLearning brings together the
      complementary strengths of two leading training industry powers
      to create a single formidable leader. Together, we
      will harness
      the qualities that have propelled the
      two companies separately and deliver a cohesive set
      of products and services that will create the

      architecture is the foundation of the industry's
      most-sophisticated line of user-friendly, effective, time-efficient
      IT courseware. Each course includes Precision

      • The NetG/Gartner pairing was originally
        announcedin the trades last summer. We still believe there
        could be a match here, if only UOLP could bring
        something to the table, more then a high debt ratio, a
        short-term mentality, a client base that is increasingly
        frustrated with operations as well as the termination of the
        development of IT curriculum, not to mention the army of
        VP's. Perhaps UOLP could work a trade for one competent
        executive with sales & marketing savy. Oops then they might
        actually start making a profit, and that apparently goes
        against their corporate strategy. UOLP= U Obviously Lose
        Plenty.
