Ex hedge funder, Salman Khan, heard that his usually A-grade cousin Nadia was struggling with her homework. He offered to help tutor her but found that when put on the spot, Nadia became unable to think clearly and would freeze, needing Khan to repeat himself a number of times. This led Khan to upload short YouTube videos in which he'd explain the problem, allowing Nadia to watch and re watch in her own time and without feeling under pressure. Before long Nadia's friends were using the videos and so began the foundations of the now worldwide Khan Academy. Today Salman connects to over 2 million people from all backgrounds and ages who sign on to use the Khan Academy videos which now cover every conceivable subject. The One World Schoolhouse is Khan's passionate and practical introduction to his vision for the future of education, a vision that shows why conventional classroom teaching may no longer be the best way.
