Wolfram Education Group Now Offers Convenient, Online Mathematica Training

February 2, 2004--Wolfram Education Group is now providing Mathematica training courses online. In addition to center-based and on-site courses, customers can now take a training class from the comfort of their own home or office. This is an attractive alternative for customers who wish to learn on their own familiar computer system as well as for those who have financial constraints.

Online training courses are identical in content to Wolfram Education Group's center-based courses and are taught by the same Wolfram Education Group certified instructors. Upon registering for an online class, students are directed to courseware downloads and given instructions on how to join the class. Instructions include the class teleconference phone number and WebEx setup directions.

"We are excited to have the online classes up and running," says Paul Wellin, director of Wolfram Education Group. "While we are able to offer center-based training in many central locales throughout the United States and abroad, the additional time and cost involved for some customers to travel to those cities makes it infeasible. With our online classes, you can conduct your regular work in the morning and attend your Mathematica training course in the afternoon, all from the same location."

Both M101: A First Course in Mathematica and M110: Working with Data Using Mathematica can now be taken online through May 2004. Additional classes will be added to the schedule soon.
