Sunburst Communications Licenses Web Workshop from Vividus Corporation


Sunburst Communications has partnered with Vividus Corporation to develop its newest educational product for children, Net Explorations with Web Workshop. Net Explorations with Web Workshop is the first retail CD-ROM that lets children quickly and easily create content-rich personal websites for the Internet, without knowledge of HTML or other Internet programming languages.

"Vividus is well known and highly respected for its powerful creativity software for children," said Warren Schloat, Chief Executive Officer of Sunburst Communications. "Sunburst's educational content and Vividus' robust product design have combined in a powerful tool that lets kids learn while they enjoy the creative challenge of building their own web pages."

Sunburst Communications is the first licensee of Vividus' Web Workshop application software. Sunburst has contributed educational content to the product, enhancing the underlying Vividus software. "Net Explorations with Web Workshop is a great example of partnership at work," said Lloyd Leanse, Vividus' Vice President of Business Development. "We chose Sunburst as our first partner for this product because of the company's excellent reputation and strengths in the education market."

Net Explorations with Web Workshop is distributed by RandomSoft and will be available at software stores such as Software Etc., Egghead, and Electronics Boutique, office superstores, membership, and bookstores and media retailers. Sunburst's School Version of Web Workshop has also been released, which is geared specifically for teachers and includes teachers' guides for classroom use.
