Press Release: EduTone Announces Flink Learning Joins the Single Sign-On Marketplace
EduTone Single Sign-On Marketplace part of Intel Education is Coming Soon
Alameda, CA – March 3, 2014. EduTone Corporation announced today that Flink Learning has joined the EduTone Single Sign-On (SSO) Marketplace Part of Intel Education which is an on-demand catalog of cloud-hosted, third party try and buy services for the K-12 education market segment.
Flink Learning includes an Internet subscription to over 4,000 e-learning activities for Grades K-5 to teach Reading, Writing, Math, Physical Science, Life Science, and American History. In addition, Flink Learning includes an authoring subscription—FlinkMake—a powerful software development tool that makes it is as easy for parents and teachers to create an instructional software activity as it is for them to create a printed worksheet.
“We are excited to add Flink Learning as a partner in the EduTone SSO Marketplace part of Intel Education,” said Terry Smithson, Senior Vice President of EduTone. “Flink Learning has been part of We the Teachers for a couple of years and is used by teachers around the world. Becoming a Flink Learning user not only enhances the student education experience, but that of the teacher as well,” continued Smithson.”Unlike Kevin Costner, I can build it but nobody comes,” said Dr. Peter Dublin, CEO and Founder of Flink Learning. “Flink Learning joined the marketplace because it offers a smaller publisher like us the opportunity to concentrate on product development while the EduTone Single Sign-On Marketplace Part of Intel Education finds us customers for our teacher tools and content,” explained Dublin.
The EduTone SSO Marketplace part of Intel Education is coming soon and will be accessible through the EduTone SSO Passport which enables distribution partners to offer school customers the ability to immediately provision any best of breed, web-enabled content or software services to their teachers and students from an on-demand catalog.
