Khan Academy Is Now Available On Android
Since it’s launch in 2006, non-profit educational organisation Khan Academy has been working towards providing education to everyone with Internet access. Now, after years of anticipation, Khan Academy has released an Android App that allows users to learn on the go, whether you’re in the office or sat on your couch!
Learn Anytime, Anywhere
Khan Academy, who have worked with institutions including NASA, MIT, The Museum of Modern Art and The California Academy of Sciences to create unique educational courses for their users, says that 30% of sessions are conducted on mobile devices, so it’s about time they had an Android app. In a blog post, Khan Academy continued: “We believe strongly that unlocking the potential for anyone, anywhere to learn on 2 [billion-plus] Smartphones worldwide is just getting started.”
Khan Academy’s Android app comes fully stocked with over 10,000 educational videos and detailed explanations in a variety of subjects. ‘Learn using videos and in-depth articles in math (arithmetic, pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, statistics, calculus, linear algebra), science (biology, chemistry, physics), economics, and even the humanities with tutorials on art history, civics, finance, and more,’ Khan Academy explains.
The new app also supports a sleek search feature and swift syncing between your mobile device and khanacademy.org, as well as an offline mode so you can download courses and complete them even if you don’t have Internet access. The app is entirely free and available on Google Play Store, so you can learn anywhere, anytime. As Khan Academy says: It doesn’t matter if you are a student, teacher, home-schooler, principal, adult returning to the classroom after 20 years, or a friendly alien just trying to get a leg up in earthly biology—Khan Academy’s materials and resources are available to you completely free of charge.’
