Bytes of Learning
Bytes of Learning (www.bytesoflearning.com) develops and publishes multimedia software tools and supporting materials for education. The company, who is one of the latest partners in the North American donation program, will be donating its UltraKey 5.0 typing instruction software. “We are delighted to welcome Bytes of Learning to our family of TechSoup Global product donors,” said Rebecca Masisak, co-CEO of TechSoup. "They have made available essential technology products that will be of tremendous value to our international recipient organizations.”
The news of the new international donor partner was announced during the TechSoup Global Summit 2007, which brings together TechSoup partner NGOs of eight countries and four continents who currently manage TechSoup product donation distribution programs in their countries. These NGOs partner with TechSoup to implement the highly effective product donation program, while adapting it to local business practices, laws and cultural imperatives. The country-specific donation programs give qualifying NGOs access to technology product donations and resources they need to best serve their communities.
Art Willer, President of Bytes of Learning, said: “As a producer of computer literacy learning tools, our partnership with TechSoup has been the perfect way to extend our products to deserving NPOs. We have seen so much success with TechSoup in the past year, we expect the international expansion to fly from the get go.”
Rufina Fernandes, CEO of NASSCOM Foundation, TechSoup Global’s partner in India, added: “The TechSoup program is a groundbreaking concept in India. In the past, it was difficult for NGOs to connect with technology donors, but this program removes that barrier. NASSCOM Foundation is proud to be partnering with TechSoup to foster social development by providing NGOs with access to donated products, a wealth of technology content, and connections to communities of support.”
