Amazon Launches Kindle Management Service for Schools

According to SmartBrief on Ed Tech, Amazon unveiled Whispercast, a service that lets schools manage a fleet of Kindle tablets and e-readers from one website. The service is part of the company’s push to get the Kindle into more classrooms. It allows educators set up and monitor students’ user accounts and limit what students can do with the device, the company said. San Jose Mercury News (Calif.)/Reuters (free registration) (10/17)
