LOS ANGELES, January 12, 2005 —
Knowledge Adventure announced that its partnership agreement with Great Source to distribute and publish its school software catalogs has ended. To strengthen its focus on the school market and create a closer connection with education customers, Knowledge Adventure will bring its own catalog of award-winning products to market in 2005 and beyond. Working directly with distributors and resellers, the company will rebuild and reinvigorate its presence in the school market, renewing its strong commitment to education. Toward this goal, it will offer new school products for 2005, and new initiatives that will bring the company closer to its customers - teachers, parents and the students themselves.

Working closely with its distributor and reseller partners, Knowledge Adventure will continue to market its products for schools through printed catalogs, demo CDs and Website support. In addition, Knowledge Adventure will continue to provide free technical support designed specifically for the school customers.

"Knowledge Adventure's first action as an independent publisher is to prioritize and increase its sales and marketing activities in the education market," said Knowledge Adventure Chief Executive Officer David Blumstein. "The changes we are making will result in stronger and closer ties to our education partners. Also, they will enable us to offer software programs for schools that feature our newest technologies and content while incorporating the unique requirements of our education customers."

A leader in educational technology, Knowledge Adventure is dedicated to helping teachers and students reach their educational goals by creating products that motivate and engage students as they learn. For over 20 years, the pioneering products of Knowledge Adventure have delivered educationally innovative learning experiences that appeal to a variety of learning styles.

"2005 promises to be an exciting year for Knowledge Adventure," said Leslie House, Knowledge Adventure Sr. Vice President. "Because educators are at the heart of our mission, we realize that by bringing our school sales functions in-house and working directly with teachers, we will be able to offer the highest quality of service to our customers and address their needs. All of this is vital to our success in the school market."
