App Tour - Khan Academy

 

This week's app tour is to introduce you to Khan Academy and their Windows Store app.

If you have never heard of Khan Academy they are a non-profit educational company/organization that was established in 2006 by Salman Khan. His primary goal was to provide free educational resources worldwide for everyone.

Although this app is not built specifically for Windows 10, it was first released with the Windows 8 version of the Windows Store, it runs just fine on these two operating systems.

One change that has happened over the last few years is that the Khan Academy app is now open source and anyone can contribute to its development at https://github.com/Khan/khan-windows

Take a look at this walk through to see how extensive the collection of classes are in the app yet the app itself remains fairly simple and straight forward.

It would be nice to see this developed into a Universal Windows Platform app and become available on on Windows mobile devices as well.

Download Khan Academy app from the Windows Store.
