Amazon Jumps into Digital Ed Resource Business
Amazon has expanded its footing in the education arena with a new service that allows teachers to search for, curate, share, review and access digital resources for use in the classroom. https://thejournal.com/articles/2016/06/28/amazon-jumps-into-digital-ed-resource-business-starts-with-oer.aspx

This service was announced at the International Society for Technology in Education Conference in Denver. It's in the testing stage now. The US Department of Education is supporting the service, according to the article. Is this an interesting opportunity for SMD Education as a conduit for our products and projects?
