SANS - Survey on application security programs

Learnfree.co.uk, the Times Education Supplement's Web site that offered educational resources to students, parents and teachers, has been closed down because of "the present conditions in the online education market."

The site has announced its own demise:

"Thanks for coming to visit Learnfree.co.uk.
Unfortunately, Learnfree has gone to the great website in the sky - we've been closed until further notice."

Certain aspects of the site have been retained and set up separately, which casts doubt on the reason given for the site's closure. If the market could not sustain one site, how will it sustain three or four?

The parts that have been kept include a directory of nurseries in the UK, a youth sports magazine and an interactive service that gave students the opportunity to "talk to" historical figures. Links are available on the site.

The customer care manager at News International newspapers said he could not speculate as to whether the site will return at some point in the future. ®
