TORONTO, Sept. 1, 2011 /CNW/ - Mount Knowledge Inc., Toronto, a global accelerated learning provider of English language and educational technologies, in cooperation with Ryerson University's Center for Learning Technologies (http://www.ryerson.ca/clt/), announced that it has been selected as one of 15 successful applicants, with 46 project submissions, for the Applied Research and Commercialization (ARC) Initiative funded by the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario.
