The edu market

It is a bit surprising to me that we don't hear anything about either Apple or Amazon doing anything much to help the iPad or Kindle fit into the education market. For example, software making it easier to distribute documents/ebooks to a whole class full of devices at once.
I would'a thunk, especially given the high interest shown by institutions, that they would be bending backwards to help. Not only is it a big market in itself, but it also introduces a big number of new users to a device, meaning beaucoup future sales.
