    BOCA RATON, Fla., April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Steven M. Bettinger, president
 and CEO of Virtual Academics (OTC Bulletin Board:   VADC), said today that
 VADC's plans to develop systems and courses for wireless education and
 training are proceeding.  "We believe the academic delivery systems that we
 are developing and testing will change distance learning for schools and
 corporate training programs," Mr. Bettinger explained.  "By offering wireless
 education and training through Palm devices and, soon, through WAP technology,
 we believe that new markets will become available to us."
     VADC is currently offering a limited number of its business courses
 through Palm wireless technology, which also provides students the means to
 post messages, communicate with instructors and fellow students, and take
 exams.  VADC is also in the process of testing course offerings via WAP
 technology that will be accessible through Internet-enabled cellular
 telephones.
     Mr. Bettinger added, "Our goal, through the wireless services and
 applications we are developing, is to offer to academic institutions,
 corporations and government agencies the ability to reach students and
 employees for whom the traditional Internet-based distance education is not
 practical, such as employees who travel a great deal."
     VirtualAcademics.com, Inc. is an education solutions provider that owns
 and operates online distance learning universities and schools offering
 Internet and wireless training with degree programs in multiple languages to
