KhanAcademy.Com – Personalized, World-Class Education to Anyone, Anywhere
Posted on: December 30, 2015. Comments ( 1 )

What began as an attempt by one man to tutor his cousin, has burgeoned in an organization of 80 people—The Khan Academy.

We are a diverse, not-for-profit team, of less than 100 members, that has come together to work on an audacious mission: to provide free world-class education for anyone, anywhere. We are developers, teachers, designers, strategists, scientists, and content specialists who passionately believe in inspiring the world to learn.

Khan Academy offers practice exercises, instructional videos—over 1 lakh videos and exercises each month—and a personalized learning dashboard.

We tackle math, science, computer programming, history, art history, economics, and more. Our math missions guide learners from kindergarten to calculus using state-of-the-art, adaptive technology that identifies strengths and learning gaps that empowers learners to study at their own pace in and outside of the classroom.

We also have partnerships with institutions like NASA, The Museum of Modern Art, The California Academy of Sciences, and MIT to offer specialized content.

We reach more than 15 million people worldwide, each with their own unique story, who learn at their own pace on Khan Academy every single day. Our resources are being translated into more than 36 languages in addition to the Spanish, French, and Brazilian Portuguese versions of our site.

Free tools for parents and teachers

Khan Academy empowers coaches (teachers/parents) of all kinds to better understand what their children or students are being assessed as and how best to help them. Parents and teachers can see at a glance whether a child or student is struggling or if his/her performance is at a peak and is now far ahead of the class.

Coach Resources is the go-to place if you’re an educator, a parent, or just someone interested in helping others learn. Click the drop-down button next to the “Subjects: Coach resources” (at the top left side of the search bar, underneath the green banner) for all categorized educational resources listed on the website. Additional resources are available on our blog.

Coach Dashboard, exclusively for teachers, provides a summary of class performance as a whole as well as detailed student profiles.

We also have a photo gallery of how life is at Khan Academy and a video repository—case studies that cover various models in public, charter, and independent schools—of how various organizations use our resources in real life. More such examples are available on our blog.

Our Philosophy

You only have to know one thing:
# You Can Learn Anything

Most people are held back not by their innate ability, but by their mindset. They think intelligence is fixed, but it isn’t. Your brain is like a muscle. The more you use it and struggle, the more it grows. And new research shows we can take control of our ability to learn. We can all become better learners.

We just need to build our brains in the right way.
