Content from US federal agencies, nonprofits, and other providers of open educational resources (OER) will feature in the latest relaunch of Amazon Inspire, the company’s take on educational stores.

As reported on edscoop.com, the launch was quiet and Inspire still in beta. A team of education and content developer professionals has been working with Amazon over the last year to make sure the platform is useful and free from the concerns of the previous version.

Over time, Amazon is expected to launch additional features that allow educators everywhere to upload their content. While content providers such as the National Science Foundation can afford to keep their content free, individual creators might hope Amazon Inspire adds content monetization options, which would make the platform a part open, part paid content store. In any case, by allowing users to upload content, the responsibility of copyrighting content falls on Amazon only indirectly. Last year, several educators found their IP on the Inspire platform without their authorization. Now, the company will merely have to comply with takedown requests in a timely manner, should they arise.

The launch makes Inspire the first service featuring OER from a large tech company. Currently there are several such platforms from non-profits or government organizations, many of which already offer integration with LMS.
