PEARL RIVER, N.Y., July 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Sandbox Interactive, Inc. announced that starting September 14th 2015 its SaaS Communication Tool, Captivator®, will be delivering online lessons and examinations to students of Jumpstart Academy Africa in Cameroon and Nigeria.

Larry Cerri, Founder and President of Sandbox Interactive, Inc. said, "We are proud to be a part of this innovative approach to learning by providing a platform that gives the Academy a self-­directed learning design capability to drive student-­based interactivity that cultivates critical thinking, ethical leadership, an entrepreneurial approach to problem solving, and civic engagement.  Cerri added, "This is what Captivator was designed for -- web-­based learning, on-­line lessons and examinations, and accurate and timely reporting."

Madelle Kangha, Co-­founder of Jumpstart Academy Africa remarked: "Africa has leapt the traditional telecommunications infrastructure of copper wire.  With more than 120 million cell lines in Nigeria and 64 million in Cameroon, web-­based learning via portable devices is the logical route to improve the education systems in both countries.  Captivator is the platform that we have been looking for since we founded Jumpstart."

Omotola Akinsola, Co-­founder of JumpStart Academy Africa added: "We are extraordinarily lucky to have found Captivator which offers a supremely efficient and modern alternative to the old-­fashioned and dated learning environments available in Africa today."

Sandbox Interactive, Inc. is the parent company of Captivator, the all-­in-­one interactive application that successfully marries social media with web-based technology serving more than 40,000 users in 56 countries.  For more information visit www.captivatorapp.com
