EduTone Single Sign-On Marketplace part of Intel Education is Coming Soon

Alameda, CA – March 25, 2014. EduTone Corporation announced today that Hines Global Education and their flagship product Moblingo 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. Moblingo Offers a Fun, New Way to Learn a Language – Moblingo, a language learning software app uses gamification to assist users in learning a new language. By completing games such as hidden objects puzzles, users can not only learn a language but, can prepare themselves to take the Test of English as a Foreign Language exam for study in the United States or other English speaking countries.

“Moblingo will revolutionize the way we learn new languages. Gamified language immersion in the palm of your hand at an affordable price point makes multilingualism possible for millions of global citizens,” says Scott Hines, the founder and CEO of the company. “We are happy to add Hines Global Education with Moblingo to the EduTone SSO Marketplace part of Intel Education,” said Robert Iskander, Chairman of EduTone. “Education gaming is one of the next movements in education and Moblingo will help language learners from around the world,” continued Robert.“Having been involved with education for many years, I decided it was time to create a language development app that uses the popular games you see on social media and other platforms. Moblingo takes that technology and combines it with a powerful learning tool,” said Hines.

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.
