I come from a poor family. At home it’s one room, just a room we live in. When I was a child, I used to fear mathematics. But now, I am in love with mathematics because of Khan Academy.

About the innovation

Anyone can learn anything for free

Khan Academy is on a mission to provide a free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere. Their interactive practice problems, articles, and videos help students succeed in math, biology, chemistry, physics, history, economics, finance, grammar, and many other topics.  Khan Academy provides teachers with data on how their students are doing so they can identify gaps in learning and provide tailored instruction. They also offer free personalized SAT and LSAT practice in partnership with the College Board and the Law School Admission Council. 

Millions of students from all over the world, each with their own unique story, learn at their own pace on Khan Academy every single day. Their resources are being translated into more than 40 languages in addition to the Spanish, French, and Brazilian Portuguese versions of their site.

Nearly 20 million learners use Khan Academy every month in over 190 countries and over 40 languages.

Why Khan Academy works

  • Personalized learning: Students practice at their own pace, first filling in gaps in their understanding and then accelerating their learning.
  • Trusted Content: Created by experts, Khan Academy’s library of trusted practice and lessons covers math, science, and more. Always free for learners and teachers.
  • Tools to empower teachers: With Khan Academy, teachers can identify gaps in their students’ understanding, tailor instruction, and meet the needs of every student.

Learners, teachers, and parents can sign up to Khan Academy for personalized content, relevant to their teaching or learning needs. 

Khan Academy Kids also inspires a lifetime of learning and discovery with a free, fun educational program for children ages two to seven.

A growing body of research indicates that Khan Academy’s personalized mastery learning helps drive learning outcomes for students, and even easily implementable thresholds of usage are associated with meaningful progress.

Khan Academy works closely with school districts and Ministries of Education in the United States, India, Brazil, and Peru. Also our network of Khan Academy language advocate organizations works with schools and government entities in many other countries around the globe.
