Despite doubts about how readily students will use the Kindle and Kindle DX, McGraw-Hill Education is going to introduce its higher education content on the devices. The publisher will offer more than 100 of its top-selling higher education titles in business, economics, science, math, humanities, foreign languages and social sciences. More than 3,000 McGraw-Hill Professional titles (business, medical and technical) are already available in Kindle format.
This fall, Amazon will use the McGraw-Hill content in its on-campus trial programs to make Kindle DX devices available to students. Participating colleges and universities will distribute hundreds of the devices to students across a range of academic disciplines.
Ed Stanford, president of McGraw-Hill Higher Education, said, “The modern student body increasingly requires digital access and capabilities, and we are pleased to be strengthening our partnership with Amazon to help meet these critical needs.”
