The Khan Academy: Learning without Classrooms or Curricula

Salman Khan is the polymath behind a remarkable elearning initiative, The Khan Academy, a not-for-profit organization with the mission of providing a high quality education to anyone, anywhere.

The Khan Academy has over 1200+ videos on YouTube, helping students learn everything from "basic arithmetic and algebra to differential equations, physics, chemistry, biology and finance."

Teachers and educators do a lot of talking about the potential of elearning. Find out about the remarkable individual (not a teacher) who not only imagined such an undertaking but gave up the day job to make it happen.
