The popularity and success of the Khan Academy has reached remarkable levels. According to the academy’s website, they have delivered more than 126 million lessons. In fact, scrolling through their extensive list of lessons will allow you to learn about art history, banking, algebra, organic chemistry, physics, healthcare, and much more. Khan now travels to colleges and universities, speaking and influencing professors to use class time to interact, answer questions, and help their students, rather than just giving lectures. Khan encourages the practice of recording video lectures and assigning them as homework. Khan claims to have changed the minds of many professors and the methods of many universities already, so even though he has no formal education training, Khan may still end up changing the traditional classroom in a significant way, according to The Chronicle.
