Alameda, CA – March 31, 2014. EduTone Corporation announced today that Zondle 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.

Their students then play and practice those questions in any of 62 online or mobile games (to consolidate their learning, as assessment, or in preparation for high-stakes testing).
“We are very pleased that Zondle is part of the EduTone SSO Marketplace part of Intel Education,” said Julian Mobbs, CEO of EduTone. “We are thrilled to have such a great platform available to teachers that really injects fun in the education learning experience,” continued Julian. “Zondle is very excited to be part of the Edutone SSO Marketplace part of Intel Education,” said Ben Barton, CEO of Zondle. “ We believe that being a partner on this marketplace will enable Zondle to empower many more teachers around the world, helping them use digital games to engage their students and enhance learning,” explained Ben.
