What is the Khan Academy? The Future of Education?

by Lori. LAST UPDATED ON

The Khan Academy is a top search on Google today. If you were wondering what is the Khan Academy? I wrote about this free resource in April of 2011. The goal of this not for profit organization is to provide a world class education to anyone anywhere, all for free. Students (of any age) can make use of the extensive video library as long as you have access to te web.

The Khan Academy was featured on 60 Minutes today, you can watch the clip on You Tube here. It is being called the future of education and it is FREE! There are over 4 million viewers now.

The Khan Academy   has over 1200 educational self-paced videos for students. Kids can practice all subjects including math from one plus one through Calculus. This is a great free resource for parents. The content is broken down into 10-20 minute segments. Parents and teachers can track the progress of the student through a customized profile.

The Khan Academy has received funding from The Gates Foundation and won Google’s Project 10 to the 100  ideas to change the world.
