EduTech Day: Panel member Salman Khan’s “Khan Academy”

March 15, 2011 | By | Reply More

After hearing from Salman Khan at the “Social Media” panel at FIT’s EduTech Day last Thursday, I came across some great material that I wanted to share about Sal and his “Khan Academy.”

Sal started his educational video collection with a few algebra videos that he uploaded to YouTube to help tutor his cousins. He now has over 2,100 videos and exercises on his website on a variety of topics including math, science, history, and finance. The Khan Academy is on a mission to “deliver a world-class education to anyone anywhere,” and his site certainly offers great material for those who prefer a more self-paced learning environment.

You can find the Khan Academy’s massive library of free video lessons as well as some promotional material about their mission at

In the following video, Khan gave a fantastic presentation about his organization at the 2011 TED Talks a couple of weeks ago.
