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

Alameda, CA – April 1, 2014. EduTone Corporation announced today that FYI Online 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. With over 100 interactive high school courses, FYI’s curriculum has a proven track record of engaging students. Courses can be offered fully online or used in a blended learning environment. Both options allow teachers to customize and individualize instruction. With core, honors and electives available, users of the EduTone SSO Marketplace part of Intel Education, now have access to a complete suite of instruction, from any location with Internet access, for any size school or school system.

Each course from FYI couples proven teaching methods with the most modern technology. The result is a learning environment that is more effective. For instance, TeacherSpace® –an FYI exclusive, allows a teacher the flexibility to customize courses for their school, class or individual students. Teachers can add content including videos, images, and multimedia, post questions for students to respond to in a blog, poll students or add assignments, all as they relate to the course’s objectives.

“We are very happy to include FYI Online Learning in the EduTone SSO Marketplace part of Intel Education,” said Robert Iskander, Chairman of EduTone. “By adding over 100 interactive high school courses to the marketplace offerings, students from anywhere now have the opportunity to complete a high school education and to do so within an effective learning environment,” continued Robert. “The addition of FYI Online Learning’s extensive course offerings extends the already impressive value of EduTone’s SSO Marketplace part of Intel Education.” said Dr. Christopher Gentile, FYI’s founder and CEO. “By creating an education product hub, EduTone’s delivery system of the best learning tools available offers convenience and multiple options for busy educators. We are excited that more students will have access to online curriculum and know that the people who are most important – students — will be the biggest winners.”

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.
