Someone else chose to team up with BitTorrent Inc.: the Khan Academy has released its own video catalogue app, which will provide more than two thousand educational videos to the BitTorrent users.
When BitTorrent Inc. introduced the App Studio to the BitTorrent community, it immediately started looking for ways to cooperate with musicians and other content creators, offering them a new distribution instrument enabling the artists reach millions of Internet users throughout the globe.
Now BitTorrent Inc. has teamed up with the Khan Academy. Their collaboration resulted in a new video catalogue app release that will offer more than two thousand award-winning educational videos. Salman Khan, founder and executive director at the Khan Academy, believes that BitTorrent is one of the best platforms to help the Academy fulfill its mission of providing high-quality education to people wherever they are and whoever they are. The Academy also confirmed that BitTorrent Inc. provides video creators and publishers an excellent opportunity to promote. For example, this technology lets users to download heavy video files with good speeds, without requiring costly hosting or any infrastructure on their end, which is considered an important factor for non-profit organizations.
Thus far, the Academy made the following classes available for BitTorrent users:
1. Scale of the Galaxy
2. Evolution and Natural Selection: Introduction
3. Algebra: Solving Inequalities
4. Atom: Introduction
5. History of the French Revolution
Currently the Khan Academy app can be reached through both the BitTorrent mainline and uTorrent applications.
Chief strategist at BitTorrent, Shahi Ghanem, admitted that the company was honored to help the Khan Academy bring knowledge and education to anyone throughout the world. He called the project a perfect example of why the company launched its App Studio platform. The main goal of the platform introduction was to help content creators connect with the huge user base of BitTorrent Inc. This way, the company also enjoys the advantage of empowering the Academy to provide millions of Internet users with free access to world-class educational content. Since BitTorrent believes it’s a truly worthy cause, it is looking forward to further cooperation with the Khan Academy and inviting other socially-conscious content creators to employ this innovative content distribution model.

|This guy is the best. I came accross his videos on youtube ages ago when my daughter was doing Year 12 Advanced maths. I hated trig at school and just passed it well enough to get into uni, so I didnt like the idea of going back and learning it again. She also had to do many trinomial equations etc. But after watching his videos and remembering the principals, I could help my daughter well enough so she passed and got into uni. Then my son was at TAFE doing the first year of his Electrical Apprenticeship and so much of that deals with sin, cos and tan that I had to go back again. And he also needed to do Algebraic equations by the dozens. So once again I logged onto Khan Academys youtube channel and went on to help my son with that horrible maths we all try and avoid. I really dont know how I would have got anywhere without it as we were living in an isolated location at the time and maths tutors were in short supply. Since then I have recommended Khan Academys youtube channel to other parents and their kids and everyone has come back and thanked me. This guy is good and his way of explaining concepts, patterns and principals is second to none. I cannot recommend him highly enough!|
