Amazon Launching New Site for Open Education Materials

According to Education Week, Amazon is going to launch a new Web site for open education materials. “Users of the site will be able to add ratings and reviews, and to receive recommendations based on their previous selections. Educators will be able to curate open resources, self-publish material they have developed, and put a school’s entire digital library that is open and freely available online, [Andrew] Joseph said.” I went to Google News and looked for more information about Amazon Inspire, and found only one article, a February 3rd mention in Missouri’s Liberty Tribune.
