eCollege's eLearning Environment

    DENVER, April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- eCollege(SM) (Nasdaq:   ECLG), an eLearning
 software and services provider, today announced that new advancements in its
 technology infrastructure enable a "peerless" connection among its users with
 different ISP's.  The new technology greatly reduces the need to transfer
 across networks within the Internet, as if eCollege and all of its customers
 were on the same network.
     "Having a peerless infrastructure means that educators and students will
 experience a faster connection to their eLearning environment because they
 don't have to go through peering points where their ISP must connect with
 their school's, a faculty member's, or another student's ISP," said John
 Collins, vice president of Information Services at eCollege.  "The new
 technology provides administrators, faculty, and students with an even higher
 level of service and support than they have already come to know and expect
 from eCollege."
     A peerless infrastructure translates into greater availability and
 performance.  The new technology improves the company's redundant Internet
 connectivity, ultimately improving reliability and Internet access times.
 These advancements apply to customers running the eCollege software in
 eCollege's hosted environment, or as an option when they run the software on
 their own servers.
