The Ignite platform is invitation-only for now and free to join, but Amazon will take a 30 percent cut of sales and for items costing $2.99 or less, it'll shave off a 30-cent transaction fee. Once you've uploaded your original resources, Amazon will review them to "to help protect the rights of creators and ensure the best experience for our customers." They should hit Amazon's storefront within two business days.

If you're looking to buy resources, you can search for them by grade level, topic, resource type and other factors across areas such as math, social studies, technology, science and language arts.

  Build an Alexa Skill that controls Lego sets and win a prize What if Lego sets could respond to voice commands?

The materials could be a boon for teachers who've been looking to save time instead of having to forge their own educational resources. For those who craft the materials, Amazon suggests it's a way for them to "earn money for work you're already doing."

Of course, it isn't the only place educators can find lesson plans, worksheets, games and other materials online, but perhaps Amazon's hoping they'll pick up some other items from its colossal store at the same time (while, at the very least, making sure it gets a cut of resource sales). Meanwhile, the Amazon Inspire service, which debuted in 2016 to help educators find and share materials for free, is still active.

Save up to $400 on Razer Blade laptops at Amazon .
With Black Friday around the corner, now is a great time to spring for a laptop -- particularly if you're looking for one that can be used for gaming. Amazon will discount Razer's Blade 15 until December 2nd (or, more likely, while supplies last). If you don't want a gaming machine, but would still like to buy a new laptop this year, you may also want to check out our Dell and Lenovo roundups. Blade 15 Razer offers several different configurations of the Blade 15, but the model we think offers a good mix of internals for the price is the RTX 2070 Max-Q variant with 256GB solid-state drive and 144Hz display. Amazon plans to sell this version for $2,000, down from $2,400.
