     About Prometheus
     Prometheus is a community-based, open architecture software platform that
 meets the online needs of educational institutions and is backed by The George
 Washington University in Washington, DC.  In 1997, a team at GW 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 based on proven technologies such as leading databases from Oracle
 and Microsoft as well as an open source code application built in ColdFusion.
 Other leading institutions that have adopted this proven, scalable technology
 include The Wharton School, Teachers College at Columbia University, New York
 University, The University of Wisconsin Learning Innovations, University of
 Michigan College of Engineering, and United States Open University. For more
