“Think of it as the Khan Academy channel on Curriki.org,” said Sal Khan, the founder and the familiar voice of Khan Academy’s video lessons. “Since YouTube is blocked by many schools, having an unblocked site where students can access the video library while in school is critically important. Curriki.org is a trusted site in homes, schools, and libraries world wide and can vastly improve when and how many students can access the content.”
“Curriki and Khan Academy share a common mission to provide a world-class education, for free, to everyone in the world,” said Kim Jones, Executive Director and Co-Founder of Curriki. “Providing access to the video library through Curriki.org expands the number of students worldwide who can access this excellent educational resource in school while also enabling educators to align the content to state and national learning standards, make them discoverable by subject, level and topic and integrate them into their lesson and instruction.”
A must-see resource for all parents, teachers and students, the Khan Academy effort has been featured on CNN, PBS, NPR, and is commonly viewed in educational circles as a highly influential effort. Curriki has partnered with Khan Academy to provide quick and easy access to thousands of educational videos that can be used in the classroom to supplement a lesson, or at home to support learning opportunities for students. Khan Academy has resources for a
wide variety of topics including math, biology, chemistry, physics, social studies, and history.
