Following in the footsteps of Apple and Google, Amazon's another tech company with sights set on education. As TechCrunch reports, earlier this month the e-commerce giant quietly opened the floodgates to its Amazon Education Wait List, which encourages educators to sign up for more information about an upcoming "revolutionary" platform. "The future of education is open," reads the landing page for Amazon's new venture.

The message goes on to say, "Someday soon, educators everywhere will have free and unlimited access to first-class course materials from a revolutionary platform." Right now, there aren't many details beyond that, but Amazon is said to be planning to let educators upload, manage and share education materials through the service, according to TechCrunch.

We reached out to Amazon and will update this story if we learn more details regarding the program.
