Amazon has launched AWS Educate, a cloud service specifically for educators. "AWS Educate is Amazon’s global initiative to provide students and educators with the resources needed to greatly accelerate cloud-related learning endeavors and to help power the entrepreneurs, workforce, and researchers of tomorrow." No, it's not free; rates start at $200 per educator. As David Ramel notes, "AWS Chief Evangelist Jeff Barr explained in a blog post  that this primarily will be enabled by four resources: grants of AWS credits for use in courses and projects; free content to embed in courses or to use as-is; access to free and discounted AWS Training resources; and online and in-person collaboration and networking opportunities."
