Ongoing Projects

Khan Academy Translations Project

There were two key findings when we started working on Thai Tamil Palli project. One of them was the availability and access to quality teachers as you move into the remote villages. The second finding was related to the availability of teaching materials and aids. Even for motivated teachers, the tools are not available to provide quality education. As we started thinking about the way to change this scenario, we came across Khan Academy.

With a library of over 3,600 videos on everything from arithmetic to physics, finance, and history and hundreds of skills to practice, Khan Academy is a not for profit corporation with a mission to help students learn what they want, when they want, at their own pace.

We are happy to be selected as the Advocate for Khan Academy Tamil Translations. As part of this project, we are working with a set of committed volunteers and started our prototype translations. Please visit Khan Academy Tamil pageto see the videos translated so far.
