COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY to distribute e1t1.com’s
MUSIC-DRIVEN EDUCATIONAL SITE

e1t1.com has established a relationship with Columbia University's Institute of Learning Technologies (ILT) to effectively test-bed and distribute their innovative music-driven, educational website, currently under development. ILT is a development group using digital information resources to further progressive reform in education and society. ILT will support e1t1.com’s development project through digitizing assets and distributing the unique site to over 30,000 students and 1,500 teachers in 80 schools throughout NYC and Upstate NY.

Both Gary and Angela Wollman, CEO and President of e1t1.com, respectively, have gone through great lengths to find the best overall environment in which to launch their new concept. “We felt the intellectual community at Columbia’s ILT was of the highest integrity, had all the elements in place to effectively test and distribute our site - and perhaps, most importantly, had values closely aligned with ours." ILT and the Center for Collaborative Education’s (CCE) Eiffel Project http://www.cnmtc.columbia.edu/horizons.html has recently won a 7 million dollar Challenge Grant from the U.S. Department of Education supporting the project’s efforts to demonstrate how a creative new vision for technology can break the constraints of the traditional school - thereby enabling all children to achieve unprecedented levels of excellence. “ILT would like to work together with e1t1 in order to help achieve our goal to dramatically improve the educational experience as well as raise the awareness of children who are in need of these programs,” states Professor Robbie McClintock, Co-Director of ILT and an intellectual Historian interested in the effects of  changes in technology on education and culture.

e1t1.com’s breakthrough site will employ music, media and technology to help young people become better informed about issues that really impact them.  “A greater understanding of these issues on an individual basis, will enable us all to collectively attain a better quality of life in today’s global world. Interactive media and new technologies can and should be designed to facilitate these goals - this is the promise of the new world. e1t1.com will help lead the way” according to co-founder and CEO Gary Wollman.

e1t1.com’s mission is to use the power of technology -  through music, video, computer and the internet - to promote a greater sense of humanity, especially among young people; creating a strong online brand
