The future of education: The KhanAcademy

Posted by Ed on October 9, 2011

Salman Khan gave a talk at TED where he talked about the KhanAcademy:

Khan became famous for making videos on several topics, such as math, finance, biology etc.
He even received a 2 million dollar prize from google and is supported by
the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Today’s school education has a big flaw: The assumption that every student is learning at the same pace.
With those videos and the monitoring system offered by the KhanAcademy you allow every student to learn at his own pace.

As Bill Gates mentions after the TED talk this is the future of education.
