[Sebastopol, 1/25/2011] – Nonprofit eSpindle Learning today announced integration of its vocabulary coaching program, LearnThatWord, into the Google Apps Marketplace™. Google Apps Marketplace is Google's online storefront for Google Apps™ products and services.
LearnThatWord provides personalized vocabulary tutoring based on a foundation of 150,000 words. Each word is provided with audio, images, translations in 37 languages, usage samples with audio, tutoring comments and more.
LearnThatWord is available via Pay-Per-Result™, an cost-effective concept that allows administrators to only pay for measured learning results. There are no per-person licensing fees. Teachers and students can use the program free of charge, and only pay for actual learning results, achieved and tracked by the application.
This means that a learning credit is charged only if a word was challenging for a student, added to the practice cycle, and removed after the student demonstrates long-term retention. This innovative and patent-pending concept is explained in a video here.
LearnThatWord offers an extended trial period, free tutoring for third grade public school students in the U.S. and Canada, and 24/7 customer service.
“Our integration into the Google Apps Marketplace means that it is now even easier for schools to get started,” says Rosevita Warda, Executive Director of eSpindle Learning.
"In addition we provide 24/7 customer service via chat and email and unlimited professional development for a smooth start."
The Google Apps Marketplace makes it easy for the more than 3 million businesses and the thousands of educational institutions using Google Apps to discover, purchase and deploy integrated web applications and related professional services. By integrating with user account and application data stored in Google Apps, these cloud applications provide a simpler user experience, increase efficiency and reduce administrative overhead.

With just a few clicks, accounts are created and become instantly accessible for each user through the Google universal navigation bar: No additional sign-on is needed.
By adding LearnThatWord from the Google Apps Marketplace, schools automatically receive 100 free learning credits, and each student gets 5 free credits to get started. Google Apps schools further receive a 10% discount on their first credit deposit, and public schools in the U.S. and Canada can get free tutoring for all their third grade students by contacting the LearnThatWord support team.
