(OTCBB: EZEN.OB), a leading market provider of real-time collaboration solutions for corporate, government networks, and eBusiness, today announced that starting this month it will provide both its User and Administrator courses online to make training more readily available to its customers.

The User Course teaches students how to utilize all the tools, from basic navigation skills to in-depth whiteboard and shared view features. The online User Course will also teach students how to fully utilize the feature-rich functionality, by teaching them how to migrate their company processes into the InfoWorkSpace application.
