          Benefits of knowledgeWorks LMS to Governmental Organizations
      *  Training and education is a critical component of any government or
         military organization.  With staff spread across the world and time
         sensitive needs, they need to be able to deploy training materials to
         a dispersed audience immediately.
      *  The Department of Defense now requires that all eLearning providers
         doing business with the DoD comply with the SCORM 2004 standard, which
         calls for open architecture and the reusability of digital eLearning
         content.  knowledgeWorks LMS is the only product on the market that
         complies with this standard, delivering a truly flexible and scalable
         educational platform.
      *  eLearning, by its very nature, demands a fluid environment, with
         content that can change rapidly.  knowledgeWorks LMS keeps the project
         manager in constant control of their content, eliminating the time and
         hassle of updating or editing materials through external sources.
     "The Air Force JAG Corps' selection of knowledgeWorks LMS is a critical
 milestone for techniques.org," said Ryan Gilmer, Founder and Director of
 Client Services of techniques.org.  "As the only SCORM 2004 certified LMS on
