Khan Academy in the Economist: The Future of E-ducation
In a story called “E-ducation: A long overdue technological revolution is at last under way,” the Economist reports on the future of learning online, mentioning Khan Academy. Four years after Salman Khan gave up his job at a hedge fund to focus on making maths videos, the Khan Academy has 6m registered users, who solve (or try to solve) 3m problems a day, and it has broadened its curriculum far beyond maths. It is spreading beyond America, too. Carlos Slim, one of the world’s richest men, is said to be paying for a version of Khan Academy’s curriculum to be developed for schoolchildren in his native Mexico.
