The AOL Foundation has announced its call for applications for the year 2000. Through the Interactive Education Initiative (IEI), grants will be provided to teams of educators to develop and implement unique, hands-on projects that improve student performance through the integration of innovative technology into the learning environment. Project teams can apply for grants of up to $7,500 to support highly creative ideas for using the Internet in the classroom. In addition to cash grants, recipients will be eligible to receive in-kind assistance and online support. Applications and information can be obtained by calling (703) 265-1342 or visiting www.aolfoundation.org.

A new program developed with collaboration from Sylvan Prometric, Regents College, Microsoft Corp. and CompTIA will make it possible for IT professionals to receive college credit for Microsoft and CompTIA certifications. Based on the existing Regents College Bachelor of Science degrees in Computer Information Systems, the new program will be launched on January 1. Regents College and testing experts will evaluate all Microsoft and CompTIA examinations for college-credit equivalency, thus giving IT professionals the opportunity to leverage their certifications into a college degree.
