Its website has over 3000 videos that cover relevant subjects like biology, chemistry, K-12 math and more. Some noteworthy metrics to consider the Khan Academy in social media, particularly its YouTube Channel currently has registered 295,000 subscribers and earned close to 130 million video views. So is there a buzz or educational value about this online venture? Is the content from Khan Academy merit to be part of the curriculum?
