SAN DIEGO, Dec. 9, 2013

SAN DIEGO, Dec. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Ed4Online will offer the Thuze library
of eTextbooks to students across the country under the terms of a new
partnership with Bridgepoint Education, Inc. (NYSE: BPI). Ed4Online is a
provider of continuing education courses to traditional colleges and
universities such as Rutgers, Auburn, Towson and Texas Southern University.
The partnership between Bridgepoint Education and Ed4Online will result in
decreased distribution costs and provide students with convenient digital
access to textbooks that were previously unavailable to them online.

"We are very excited about our partnership with Thuze," said Dr. Rusty
Barrier, CEO of Ed4Online. "Using their professionally written eTextbooks
supports our goal of providing high-quality, affordable courses to our
students and partners."

Ed4Online will offer students a variety of Thuze eTextbooks covering
disciplines such as Early Childhood Education, Marketing, Psychology,
Management, and Criminal Justice. Unlike the content in other eTextbook
formats that simply convert traditional print textbooks, all Thuze content was
developed specifically for a digital format by respected academics from
learning institutions across the country. The flexibility and convenience of
the digital format allows students to study on any device.

"Thuze is happy to be helping Ed4Online continue to innovate with the goal of
making their courses more convenient, engaging, and affordable for students,"
said Andrew McCann, vice president of Business Development at Bridgepoint
Education.
