GLM Highlights in Technology: Salman Khan

Salman Khan

 

Salman Khan was chosen to be honored as one of our GLM Highlights in Technology.  Salman Khan started khan academy after tutoring his cousin in mathematics through Yahoo! Doodle notepad.  Apparently the word got around of what Khan was doing so he eventually decided to put his tutorials on YouTube.  This decision yielded great success as people began to put a high demand on his tutorials.  He eventually had to leave his job as a hedge fund manager to manage Khan Academy full time.  In 2009, the Khan Academy received the Microsoft Tech Award for education.  Salman Khan was listed in Time’s 100 Most Influential People for 2012.
