After a year-long beta testing phase, Amazon Web Services (AWS) has officially launched Amazon Inspire, a database of educational and classroom resources to all schools (and teachers) — just in time for the new school year. Amazon Inspire is the latest in a suite of Amazon offerings for the education community. In this offering, teachers and schools can upload and access unlimited educational and classroom resources.
The company’s ultimate goal is for every teacher in every subject to benefit from a collective experience and knowledge of their peers.
Inspire is hosted on AWS, which is a platform more than 5,000 educational customers use for cloud storage. The site provides students and educators with access to free content, training, and collaboration portals.
Additionally, through the company’s grant-based AWS Educate program, institutions can get free access to AWS services.
For the company’s commitment to education, and developing tools to facilitate teaching and learning, Amazon Web Services has earned a Market Connections Top Innovator commendation.
