Reel.com Founder to Launch Virtual College
Posted on April 7, 1999Stuart Skorman, founder of Reel.com, has announced the ground-breaking of Hungry Minds, a web-based distance learning portal. Scheduled to launch in September 1999, Hungry Minds will enable students to take Web-based classes on anything from Internet-related professional development topics to lifestyle and continuing education. The classes will leverage the flexibility of the Internet, allowing students to customize each course for their own personal learning experience.
"This is a project I've been incubating for years. I've always had a burning desire to move education beyond the traditional classroom," said Skorman. "At Hungry Minds, we allow you to set your own learning goals and enjoy a program that adapts to your individual needs. Our customized courses put students in the driver's seat."
