Khan Academy in the Economist: The Future of E-ducation

<p>In a story called &ldquo;E-ducation: A long overdue technological revolution is at last under way,&rdquo; 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&rsquo;s richest men, is said to be paying for a version of Khan Academy&rsquo;s curriculum to be developed for schoolchildren in his native Mexico.</p>
