The Khan Academy was started by an entrepreneur named Salman Khan. The Khan Academy was initially known for uploading simple math lessons through over 2,000 videos on YouTube. The Khan Academy received $2 million from Google as a donation this past September. Students can earn virtual badges as they progress with lessons. Teachers at the Khan Academy will even intervene when a student is stuck.
Now Khan Academy has built a BitTorrent application to spread education. This is a huge win for BitTorrent since they have a reputation for distributing entertainment content. For the millions of people that use BitTorrent, they now have free access to educational content. You can download and install the application from the BitTorrent App Studio: http://www.utorrent.com/apps.
