Khan Academy Revolutionizing Education On YouTube

Got exams coming up? Need extra assistance in a subject area? 

Last night, 60 Minutes profiled Sal Khan of The Khan Academy whose mission is to provide a world-class education to anyone, anywhere with his educational on-line Youtube videos, wanting to share the content with whoever may find it useful. 

List of subjects: Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Cosmology & Astronomy, Algebra, Geometry, Precalculus, Trigonometry, Probability, Calculus, Linear Algebra, Finance, Banking & Money, Healthcare & Medicine and History.

“Innovation never comes from the established institutions,” Google head Eric Schmidt told Sanjay Gupta. “It's always a graduate student or a crazy person or somebody with a great vision. Sal is that person in education in my view.”  Schmidt explains more about his support for Khan’s work.
