MyVocabulary.com Chooses EDUonGo to Redesign Website and Expand Services to K-12 Teachers Worldwide(August 28, 2014)
Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) August 28, 2014
MyVocubulary.com, a free online vocabulary site that provides vocabulary puzzles to K-12 schools, has partnered with EDUonGo Inc, a cloud-based platform that hosts online academies.
MyVocabulary.com delivers vocabulary puzzles to over 25,000 schools looking to strengthen students reading comprehension and verbal skills with the use of Latin and Greek root-word study; all puzzle activities are aligned to Common Core standards.
After receiving requests from teachers to improve their site features, MyVocubulary.com selected EDUonGo to redesign their website and expand their reach to provide more puzzles and features at different levels of difficulty for teachers and students.
We are both very excited to work with the team at EDUonGo, says Jan and Carey Cook, co-founders and publishers of MyVocubulary.com. In addition to providing the consulting and development services needed to redesign our website, their flexible business model also allows us to expand our literacy resources.
As part of their agreement, EDUonGo will redesign MyVocabulary.coms current model and make the site accessible to mobile devices. EDUonGo will also integrate their learning platform into the site and add a subscription service that allows teachers to add new words and modify existing puzzles to meet his or her objectives. Additionally, the subscription fee will provide easier access to students on mobile devices.
I wish MyVocabulary.com had existed when I first moved to the States, says Steven Yee, COO of EDUonGo. Because English is my second language, learning the vocabulary was a challenge for me. I can understand how beneficial MyVocabulary.coms puzzles are, particularly for foreign students.
MyVocabulary provides interactive resources that are self-paced and align to Common Core State Standards. Content features include word puzzles and word games using Latin or Greek root-based activities to enhance reading comprehension and literacy at grade levels.
