Amazon said Thursday it is closing its edtech offering called Amazon Academyinto the operations India from August 2023, and will refund the full amount to those enrolled in the current academic batch.



The e-commerce giant has officially launched Academy (formerly named YES Done), last year.

“At Amazon, we think big, experiment, and invest in new ideas to delight customers. We also continually evaluate the progress and potential of our products and services to deliver customer value, and make regular adjustments based on those assessments, a company spokesperson told IANS.

“After an evaluation, we have made the decision to discontinue Amazon Academy. We are phasing out this program to unburden current customers,” the spokesperson added.

Amazon Academy‘s activities will be discontinued from August 2023, when the existing batch will complete its test preparation module.

Clients will have access to the full course material online for an extended period of one year, until October 2024.

The company said it remains committed to its customers in the country and the decision will not affect its services.

In January last year, during the pandemic, the company launched Amazon Academy to help students prepare for the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) for entry into technical colleges.

The online preparation provided practice routines necessary for the JEE, through the curated learning materials, live lectures, and comprehensive assessments in math, physics, and chemistry.

The service enables active learning through live classes, empowering students to strengthen their JEE preparation efforts as they can collaborate with expert tutors, learn concepts and clarify doubts in real time.

Adding even more discipline and rigor to their study methodology, it offers scheduled lessons, daily practice problems, and regular testing, starting with a crash course for the upcoming JEE Main.
