As we reported earlier, Apple has introduced the iTunes App Store Volume Purchase Program, a scheme which lets educational institutions make bulk purchases of apps for distribution among learners and teachers.
Under the scheme, developers will be able to offer educational groups special discounts for app purchases made in quantities of 20 or more.
As the scheme notes explain:
Volume Vouchers can be purchased at the Apple Store for Education in dominations of $100, $500, $1000, $5000, $10,000. These vouchers can be bought on behalf of the education institution by an Authorized Purchaser, and they may use purchase orders. The Authorized Purchaser is often a purchasing agent at the institution. You should receive your Volume Vouchers in the mail within 3 to 5 business days.*
