The Khan Academy is one of the best resources on the web for students, teachers, and volunteers looking for comprehensive content on math, history, science, economics, and language. The company, which has raised over $5 million from investors such as Google, has also partnered with the company on a massively popular YouTube channel. It has Windows 8 and iPad apps, and unofficial versions are available for Android and other platforms. Today’s update brings iPhone support.
The teachings come in the form of micro-lectures, each between five and 10 minutes, and founder Salman Khan, who started the venture in 2006, intends to continue the disruption of education through a number of media.
Khan Academy’s iPhone app doesn’t provide as much interaction as its iPad equivalent; you cannot download videos for offline usage (yet), nor can you track your progress in a series, as each subscriber has a profile in which you can earn achievements for each completed series.
You can download Khan Academy for iOS in the App Store.
