New Training Software from webSavant Brings Web Design to Beginners

Lisle, IL, March 14, 2001 — Savant Interactive, Inc. today announced the
official public release of webSavant Guide for Newbies, a training program
that steps newcomers to the World Wide Web through the basics of quality
Web site design. Priced at $39.95, the 2 CD set provides a convenient and
affordable solution to Windows and Macintosh computer users who wants to
create their own Web site for personal or small business use.

Guide for Newbies demonstrates the process of designing Web sites through
the use of QuickTime movies of the instructor’s desktop. All screen
activity and easy to follow narration is recorded onto CD-ROM, so users see
and hear exactly how to use various software programs to build their Web

“The combination of the audio and visual experience involves people in a
far greater way than traditional means of learning and increases retention
of the material,” says Eric Youngquist, President of Savant Interactive and
Senior Developer of webSavant training products. “Basically put, when you
show people how to do something and involve them in the process, they will
learn faster and remember much more.”

Guide for Newbies literally “guides” users step-by-step through the basics
of Web page design, site organization, making links to other pages,
graphics creation (including buttons, logos, and backgrounds), proper image
and photo compression, animation, and more. It then shows how to get Web
sites online and listed well with search engines.

Also included for complete computer “newbies” are lessons on how to install
software programs, how to use Web browsers, and tips for using their
computers more effectively. Guide for Newbies also recommends inexpensive
yet quality design software and contains a glossary of Web terms and
printable summaries of the lesson movies. Sample files and trials of many
of the most popular Web design and graphics programs are located on a Bonus
CD to help users get started right away.

“Many people are apprehensive about getting started building their own Web
sites. There is a belief that you either have to be a computer genius or
settle for the generic results of a ‘plug-in-your-text-here’ program,” says
Amy McLott, Director of Sales and Marketing for Savant Interactive. “Guide
for Newbies offers a way for beginners to design unique Web sites, without
requiring much computer experience, artistic ability, or a major investment
of time and money.”

Designed for people of all backgrounds in mind, Guide for Newbies provides
virtually anyone with a computer the power to design their own custom Web
site in just a matter of hours.
