TORONTO, Sept. 17, 2012 /CNW/ - Toronto Stock Exchange and TSX Venture Exchange today announced the launch of a new online training portal for issuers and other stakeholders through CoursePark, a cloud-based learning management solution developed by Bluedrop.

"Using CoursePark has allowed us to develop exceptional courses, while providing an efficient tool to distribute these courses to a large audience."
Emad Rizkalla, President and CEO, Bluedrop Performance Learning added, "We are very excited to enter into this relationship. The online courses we developed will provide a great opportunity for Toronto Stock Exchange and TSX Venture Exchange to offer world class e-learning to many of their clients in Canada and abroad.
