Amazon Partners With Brazil’s Ministry of Education to Distribute eBooks to Teachers

amazon304The Brazilian Ministry of Education has partnered with Amazon to covert and distribute textbooks to teachers across the country.

Through its National Fund for Educational Development (FNDE), Brazil has been working with Amazon to convert print books to digital and then wirelessly distribute them to teachers. So far, together they have done this with more than 200 textbooks to hundreds of thousands of public high school teachers. Teachers can access the books through Kindle reading apps. So far more than 40 million eBooks have been delivered.

“We are pleased that Whispercast is one of the foundation technologies for this innovative program. Amazon working with FNDE enhanced Whispercast, which has been used by thousands of schools in the U.S., to meet the needs of the teachers and administrators in Brazil. We are very enthusiastic in helping to bring new technologies that will help the education segment in Brazil,” stated Alex Szapiro, Country Manager, Amazon.com.br.
