Amazon has been among the leaders of the ebook arena for quite a while. With a huge library of ebooks available on its website, the company has been leading some of the most radical steps in the ebook industry. Now, it seems that Amazon is all set to disrupt the textbook industry by making a major move in favor of digital textbooks. To this end, Amazon has recently announced Whispercast for Kindle – a mass-management system for ebooks.


Amazon ereaders

Amazon Kindle ereaders and tablets have been a major success. The retailer has witnessed a huge boom in its reader base ever since it started launching these devices. While these products were purely consumer-oriented, Amazon now seeks to launch an education-friendly service, namely “Whispercast.”

Whispercast would essentially let schools and businesses distribute their textbooks or any other documents in digital format. In other words, rather than having to spend millions of dollars on printing these resources, the entities can simply roll out a digital version.

To top it off, Amazon also offers support for Android, Windows and OS X devices in Whispercast. This means, if a school wishes to avail this service, all its students need not have Amazon ereaders or tablets. Rather, even if the students own devices from other vendors, they can still receive these updates from that school.

An organization can categorize its audience in different groups using Whispercast if it has to distribute unique content to each of these. For instance, a school can make different classes into different categories and send them relevant academic documents or textbooks accordingly. This is another little step towards a world where digital textbooks would take the front seat.
