Khan Academy Armenia

Khan Academy believes education is the key to human potential; it pursues a clear mission to make quality global education accessible to everyone and everywhere.

 

Khan Academy offers exercises, educational videos and an individual learning platform to plan one’s own learning.

We study mathematics, science, computer programming, history, history of arts, economics and more, using modern technologies to identify the learner’s strengths and weaknesses. Khan cooperates with such establishments as NASA, Museum of Modern Art, California Academy of Sciences, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. 

Armenia joined the program two years ago, enabling access to the platform for Armenian learners. On the Ayb Educational Foundation’s initiative, Khan Academy materials have been localized since 2017.

 

What is Khan?

 

Khan Academy is a nonprofit organization, which was established in 2006 with the motto: “A free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere.”

The online platform is accessible to everyone, irrespective of one’s social status or place of residence. Across the platform, online education is organized through videos, educational materials and exercises, which makes it possible to self-study and reinforce one’s knowledge of different subjects. The game elements of the platform make the educational process even more engaging.  

Today, more than 60 million people from 190 countries make use of the platform and the educational materials developed by Khan Academy, including students from leading international universities and schools. More than 30 countries localize its content, and Armenia is among them. 

 

What opportunities does Khan Academy provide?

 

Individualized Education and Self-Learning

 Khan Academy offers study materials that enable learners of all age groups to self-study and achieve success. The platform enables the learner to not only use the materials but also organize their own learning and stay abreast of the new updates.

 

Classroom Learning

By introducing Khan Academy in their class, the teachers significantly improve the learning results of their students. It enables the teachers to find the best teaching model and to allot time for student support and motivation.

 

Impact

60% of those having passed a math course with Khan have doubled their final scores.

According to 79% of US high school students, Khan Academy is the most helpful among other online learning platforms for one’s further studies.

A 30-minute daily math class with Khan Academy improves student progress by 10%.

Khan Academy reduces the need for students’ private tutoring.

 

Khan Academy Armenia

With the help of Khan Academy, learners in the Armenian language, their parents and teachers, and generally anyone interested in self-learning can access the world’s leading educational resources free of charge to receive authentic education in the Armenian language.
