Amazon is preparing to launch an online education platform for schools, reports Tech Crunch.
It recently published a landing page for those interested to sign up to receive an alert when the platform is launched. Amazon says that the basic offering will be free, but it will form part of a portfolio of priced education services.
The education market is growing all the time. Analysts estimate that it will be worth almost US$446 billion (£310 billion) globally by 2020.
Amazon will join technology companies Apple and Google in moving into the education sector.
