Educating the world for free

May 11th, 2013
08:21 AM ET

One man is trying to educate the entire world for free.

It all started in 2004, when financial analyst Salman Khan posted some math tutorials for his cousin on YouTube.

About ten years later, his teachings have become known as Khan Academy, a website with more than 4,000 lessons on subjects ranging from basic math to economics – even art history.

Six million people visit the site each month and now Khan wants to reinvent the way children learn in classrooms around the world.

In the video above, CNN's Christiane Amanpour takes one of Khan's tutorials.

    It appears, or looks like that the financial analyst Salman Khan, has outdone CNN Anchors in daily habits and teaching.

    This is the way of the future. Kids will still have to find the time to watch the video lectures in their busy schedule.

    It is important for websites such as Khan or MathTV.com to provide a free education to students who need it.

    Good – I should definitely pronounce, impressed with your web site. I had no trouble navigating through all tabs and related info ended up being truly simple to do to access. I recently found what I hoped for before you know it at all. Quite unusual. Is likely to appreciate it for those who add forums or anything, website theme . a tones way for your client to communicate. Excellent task.

    Thank you for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do some research about this. We got a grab a book from our local library but I think I learned more clear from this post. I'm very glad to see such wonderful information being shared freely out there.
