Khan Academy reinvents education, one online student at a time

Michael Noer for Forbes:

It’s a prototypical Silicon Valley ethos, with one exception: The Khan Academy, which features 3,400 short instructional videos along with interactive quizzes and tools for teachers to chart student progress, is a nonprofit, boasting a mission of “a free world-class education for anyone anywhere.” There is no employee equity; there will be no IPO; funding comes from philanthropists, not venture capitalists.

Much has been written and broadcast about Khan Academy in the past few months, but if you still aren’t familiar with it, check this out, then visit the site and find something to learn. What Salman Khan and his staff are doing is amazingly cool.
