Mobile Khan Academy Hits The Shelves
At last, a mobile version of Khan Academy was released for Android devices at the very end of September. It happened along with the redesigning of the iOS app. This event was a long-awaited one due to the constantly rising popularity of the resource and reducing the amount of users’ free time for ordinary studying. Since the release, the Khan Academy application has been downloaded from Google Play Store almost a million times.
Educational videos and other learning materials from Salman Khan, a Harvard MBA graduate, have already reached millions of views on YouTube. Several years ago, he decided to create a specialized site for his collections, which had originated as a simple tutorial for Salman’s niece in 2004. That was the beginning of Khan Academy.
Free Education On The Go
The app is ad-free and available for everyone without any payments. It supports almost 40 languages of the world, providing millions of students, their teachers, parents, and anyone longing for studying with the immense amount of materials in different disciplines: Math, History, Biology, Chemistry, Economics, Computing, etc.
Of course, the Khan Academy mobile app doesn’t include all the features and opportunities of its' web version at the moment. For example, it lacks interactive exercises that usually help improve and practice the acquired knowledge. Nevertheless, it allows tracking one’s personal progress in watching video files. Thanks to the full synchronization between devices, user’s progress will be constantly updated. Furthermore, one may see transcripts and subtitles as well as download any content for offline access (either automatically or manually).
A New Way to Study
Several thousand lectures on various subjects are at users’ disposal, any time they like. Studying on the go is a perfect opportunity for busy workers, mothers, and for all those people who don’t have a chance to attend proper educational establishments.
Usually, similar resources and materials cost money. However, it is not true for this application owing to charitable contributions. The mobile Khan Academy still has areas that need some progress, but its general performance is awesome.
