The mission of Khan Academy is to deliver a world-class free education to anyone, anywhere and at any time across the planet.
In my school, there is a strong emphasis on literacy & numeracy and educators constantly look for ways to teach students with 21st century skills. Therefore, I chose Khan Academy for my analyst report as we are considering to seek services from this online educational company.
As teachers, school leaders, and education policymakers seek to transform classroom teaching and learning in a way that makes them more personalized, engaging, and effective.
Many educators are looking to use technology as the key to bring their visions to fruition.
Moreover, online learning tools are becoming very popular and Khan Academy is amongst the top player in K-12 online learning.
Teachers can use Khan Academy in classrooms in multiple ways, such as;
1. Personalized learning tool—Khan Academy can be used at the beginning or end of class or in after school activities to differentiate instructions.
It enables the students to learn and practice content relevant to their needs and at their own pace, whether they are below, at, or above grade level.
2. A supplemental resource:Teachers can assign a common set of Khan Academy problems related to the curriculum for students to practice in class or at home, and teachers can check students’ completion and comprehension through Khan Academy’s real-time reports. Students can use Khan Academy videos to review content as needed.

According to Sal Khan in 2012, “The numbers get really crazy when you look at the impact per dollar. We have a $7 million operating budget, and we are reaching, over the course of a year, about 10 million students in a meaningful way. If you put any reasonable value on it, say $10 a year–and keep in mind we serve most students better than tutoring–and you are looking at, what, a 1,000% return?”

: What people think about Khan Academy
An online learning that
this is certainly a vision of Khan Academy that we all can share. It provides an excellent starting point that connects online learning to classroom education.
An interesting story of a young man named Mark Halberstadt. Who had given up on Math and Science. He claims that he was always a "C" student growing up and never had a channel to understand topics that interested him in engineering. He found the Khan Academy in 2007 and started watching videos on Trigonometry, Calculus, and even Arithmetic. He decided to go back to school to get a Bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering. He finished his first year in college with a 4.0 GPA for the entire year, including perfect scores in Calculus and Chemistry.
He says, "coming from a background where my GPA graduating from high school was in the range of 2.0. That never would have happened without the help I got from the Khan Academy." He affirms that Khan Academy, "has helped me immensely. The impact for me in my life...I see it growing exponentially over the next 20 or 30 years."
