American Fork, UT — Oct. 21, 2008 — One button stands out among the changes to the upcoming Novell GroupWise 8 interface: the BrainStorm eLearning button.

“In the early development [of GroupWise 8], we knew we wanted to integrate seamlessly with BrainStorm to help users make the most of this new version of GroupWise,” said Dean Lythgoe, director of engineering for Novell GroupWise. “That’s why we’re excited to introduce the new BrainStorm eLearning button. For the very first time, you can access BrainStorm video training content with the single click of a button.”

With each new GroupWise release, BrainStorm, Inc., the Novell Authorized End-User Training Partner, has launched a GroupWise Train-the-Trainer tour, produced a complete set of Novell-branded Quick Start Cards, and provided Novell-contracted on-site, instructor-led end-user training for any GroupWise customer, including Novell itself.

With all its Novell integration, however, this button on the GroupWise interface marks the first big step toward a completely new end-user training paradigm.

“We’re very excited to be such an integral part of GroupWise 8,” said Eric Farr, Principal of BrainStorm. “We believe that the addition of this button on the GroupWise interface will help hundreds of thousands more GroupWise users to make the most of all the productive features in GroupWise 8. As GroupWise end-user trainers, that is our ultimate goal.”

For a minimal cost, BrainStorm will also offer a plugin that can be linked to the eLearning button on the GroupWise interface. This plugin, which will be available by the end of 2008, will lead to eight full hours of GroupWise 8 video tutorials and serve as a complete GroupWise training solution.
