Press release from: Gery Olltwit

Grey Olltwit marks its 15th anniversary of offering free and discounted educational software to students around the world by launching goopla.net, a free online learning center.

London, UK, March 17, 2011 – Educational software provider, Grey Olltwit, recently unveiled goopla.net. GOOPLA, an acronym for Grey Olltwit’s Online Personal Learning Area, offers students from low-income families free educational software to improve their math, English, science skills and more. Grey Olltwit is committed to providing students with both the tools and the confidence they need to succeed. In addition to academic subjects, Olltwit does its best to prepare students for real life and offers preparation in life skills and technology.

The non-profit organization earns revenue from those who can afford to pay the modest membership fee, as well as from advertisers. The revenue keeps membership free for those with financial-need. Grey Olltwit’s educational software is currently being used by schools and organizations nationwide, including the BBC, Olympus USA and many Education Authorities in the UK, USA, Canada and Australia. The free and easy-to-browse online learning site boasts a plethora of games and tools for students of all ages and is sure to generate a buzz in classrooms around the world.

Grey Olltwit graduates and current students are enthusiastic about the software, as well as the results. “I've been a happy Olltwit user for years - I downloaded several of your programs back in '04, for my older son to use. Now it's time for my younger son to use them and I've come back to your site to find you have even more great stuff!” explains one happy parent, Mary Beth from Indiana. “I get endless pleasure from your Jigsaw Maker program. Family photos, views- great fun. Thank you.” explains another satisfied user, Elizabeth Olson.

Simon Hensby started Grey Olltwit in South Woolwich, South London fifteen years ago. When Simon began homeschooling his special needs son, he began creating educational software to entice and teach his son. The software quickly grew in popularity and as the demand grew, so did Hensby’s database of educational games. This lastest online learning site was a natural extension of Grey Olltwit’s explansion. “With the growing popularity of Virtual Learning Environments it seemed a natural progression to make my programs playable online. Goopla.net is the result and is growing almost daily, as I transform more of my educational games into an online format.” explains Hensby.
