Oakland, Calif. — Jan. 11, 2011 — In these tough economic times, school districts are seeking innovative ways to lower their total cost of ownership for cutting-edge technologies, while expanding access to these technologies to a broader range of students. With the release of the new SciLEARN™ Enterprise application, Scientific Learning (NASDAQ:SCIL) is helping budget-conscious districts save time and money while achieving results faster, with more students.

Fast ForWord is a family of educational software products that accelerate learning by applying proven research on how the brain learns.  The products can improve student achievement by one- to two-years in as little as eight to 12 weeks.

SciLEARN Enterprise application provides web-based access to all of the Fast ForWord Series. With the new browser capabilities of SciLEARN Enterprise platform, schools no longer need to install the Fast ForWord software at each student station. Instead, SciLEARN Enterprise application can be deployed as a web-based product from a single server at the district level, eliminating thousands of dollars of overhead at every school and lowering the total cost of ownership.

“SciLEARN Enterprise application gives our customers the speed, scalability and reliability they need to cost-effectively bring the benefits of proven results, fast, to more students than ever before,” said Andy Myers, president and chief executive officer. “By providing web-based access to each Fast ForWord product, SciLEARN Enterprise application significantly reduces technology costs and saves hours of staff time for installation and support in each computer lab. We’re excited to deliver these improvements to our customers to help them gain even more value from the Fast ForWord program.”

Using the web-enabled application, districts can instantly and concurrently deploy the Fast ForWord software across the district.  By building brain fitness in the areas of areas of memory, attention, processing, and sequencing, students can realize significant achievement gains and maintain an accelerated rate of learning even after the programs end.
