Khan Academy is an online learning nonprofit company that aims to make high-quality education free for anyone with an internet connection. What was originally a one-man operation — former hedge fund analyst Sal Khan would make educational videos after work — is now a global initiative with funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Google. Bill Gates himself even uses the platform. As of February 2014, the site had 10 million monthly users, a huge increase from the 144,000 who were on the site in early 2010.
