  • Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, NC (1888PressRelease) March 25, 2014 - After almost a year of development, a completely revamped website has launched at GCFLearnFree.org. The site is designed with online learners in mind, making navigation simpler and content more organized.

    With a new and modernized look, the site offers more functionality for online learners, who now can more easily navigate through GCFLearnFree.org's 1,082 lessons in more than 90 tutorials. From the homepage, visitors can immediately reach the site's major programs of study, including Technology, Microsoft Office, Reading, Math, Career and Work, and Everyday Life. Even the All Topics area is now better structured with an intuitive organization, which will allow visitors to more easily find the topics they want.

    "This has truly been a team effort, and one that we're very proud of," says Matt Robinson, GCFLearnFree.org's director of distance learning. "Redesigning our website to have a cleaner look and to make it more organized and easily searchable has been a priority for us for quite some time, and we're excited to finally roll it out."

    Also on the site is updated information on GCFLearnFree.org itself, including more statistics about the organization, educators' resources in the way of curriculum guides and teaching tools, and a newsroom with a media kit and press releases showcasing the latest news and activities within GCFLearnFree.org. There also are more convenient ways to interact with the organization and offer feedback, both directly on the site and through social media channels.

    "It all comes down to our motto: Creating opportunities for a better life," Robinson says. "We're fully committed to making these opportunities readily available for online learners, and now we can continue to do so with a more robust and user-friendly site."

    Since 1999, GCFLearnFree.org has created and provided quality, innovative learning opportunities to anyone who wants to improve the technology, literacy, and math skills needed to be successful in both work and life. By delivering more than 1,000 lessons to millions of people in more than 200 countries ABSOLUTELY FREE, GCFLearnFree.org has become a worldwide leader in online education.
