Do you thirst for knowledge? You may want to take a look at Khan Academy. Khan Academy is a continual teaching tool that anyone can use, for free. With backing from donors like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Google, Khan Academy offers high quality education in everything from Intro to Programming, to Maths, and Art History.
Now you can pick up the beta version of the Khan Academy app for your Android device. While the app is a bit limited, you can still access all of the YouTube based videos, progress tracking and full transcripts. Hopefully soon we’ll see practice exercises and teaching tools that you can currently access on the website.
If you’d like to try the app, you can join up on the official Google+ page (optional) and download the app from the Play Store or on APK Mirror. You may see some “Listing Unavailable” errors if you visit on your computer but everything should work if you try to join up using your phone.
Khan Academy is one of the best learning tools on the net and we’re extremely excited to see them taking steps forward in making learning even easier. This app could be a great tool for teaching in, and out of, schools with the rise of cheap Android tablets and phones. Educational access to poor and rural communities has been notoriously slow to adapt to new technologies but with apps like this we could be seeing a new revolution in low income earning.
