The American firm is the latest entrant to this market where scores of startups and institutes have launched digital offerings in recent years.
Amazon Academy offers curated learning material, live lectures, mock tests, and comprehensive assessments to help students learn and practice Math, Physics and Chemistry and prepare for the Joint Entrance Examinations (JEE). Amazon Academy was in trial phase in mid-2019 and was available via its website and as an app for Android and iOS, is free and will remain so for the “next few months,” the company said.
