Khan Academy Releases New App For iPhone & iPod Touch [Updates]

Students who like to learn on the go will get a fillip with the launch of Khan Academy’s new app for iPhone and iPod Touch. Now, nearly 3500 videos, let’s call them micro-lectures, on video will be instantly accessible to students worldwide for free. The thousands of videos cover a wide variety of topics from K-12, humanities, and more advanced topics in math, finance, and economics.

The iPhone and iPod Touch app follows the release of the iPad app in March this year. The fresh app is slightly different from the iPad app as it only allows you to view the videos. With the iPad app, you can download a single video or an entire playlist and watch them offline. You can also read subtitles, and log your progress. The iPhone app is more for consumption rather than full interaction.

The videos are uniquely designed that make them easy to follow. They are completely free, so anyone from a student to a homemaker, or even a friendly alien can get in and study. Khan Academy has been at the forefront of free education for all, and with its hugely popular videos hosted on YouTube. The effort has been supported and endorsed by Google and charitable organizations like Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

      Mr. Ahmed, Education is universal and not confined to countries. :) However, congratulations to Khan Academy for a great concept of making education reach a greater mass.

    Online learning is becoming more accessible through websites such as Khan or MathTV.com

    Khan Academy is like the Wikipedia of Videos. This man is amazing, and Bill Gates who sponsored him is awesome too.
