If you’re a fan of technology, education, and learning… you know about Khan Academy. We cover Sal Khan’s incredible work quite frequently but this latest development is pretty big. They’re getting ready to release an iPad app!
The app was released just moments ago and is available in iTunes here. As of this writing, it hasn’t yet appeared in the app store on the actual iPad. That’ll be fixed shortly though as it takes awhile to show up on all of Apple’s servers.
So what can you expect from the app? A few killer features that aren’t available on the main Khan Academy website:
- Downloadable videos: take individual videos or entire playlists to watch offline at your own pace
- Subtitles: follow along, skip ahead, or go back by navigating through subtitles
- Track your progress: Log in with your Khan Academy user account to get credit for watching videos, and see your achievements
- Exercises coming soon!
The app is free and definitely going to be a crucial one for all iPads in the classroom (and at home). Here’s a sneak preview of what the app will look like!
