The Khan Academy: Education to Anyone, Anywhere

I would like to introduce you to the Khan Academy. Salman Khan (Sal) founded the Academy with the goal of using technology to educate the world. They have 1,200+ videos on YouTube covering everything from basic arithmetic and algebra to differential equations, physics, chemistry, biology and finance which have all been recorded by Sal. He even offers reviews for the SAT and the GMAT tests!

The Khan Academy and Salman Khan have also received a 2009 Tech Award in Education. The Tech Awards is an international awards program that honors innovators from around the world who are applying technology to benefit humanity.

The Khan Academy has been featured on PBS Newshour, NPR's All Things Considered, and CNN.

Sal received his MBA from Harvard Business School. He also holds a Masters in electrical engineering and computer science, a BS in electrical engineering and computer science, and a BS in mathematics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Prior to beginning the Khan Academy, he served as a hedge fund analyst.

PLEASE take a look at the Khan Academy. These are short and specific tutorials that are easy to understand.  This is well worth your time to investigate!!! Thanks to June at SREB for telling us about the Khan Academy!
