McGraw-Hill Education content to be used in Kindle DX pilots
McGraw-Hill Education has announced that it will provide content for the Kindle DX pilots. As a reminder, specific classes at seven colleges and universities will participate in a pilot program this fall to test out the large screen Kindle DX devices. The schools include: Arizona State University, Case Western Reserve, Pace University, Princeton University, Reed College, University of Washington, and the Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia. An article from Publishers Weekly says that over 100 McGraw titles in various disciplines will be available including: business, economics, science, math, humanities, foreign languages, and social sciences. The article does not indicate who will be responsible for paying for the content but an article from Tech Flash notes that all content for the pilot will be provided by Amazon.
