Tesla CEO Elon Musk has donated $5 million to digital learning non-profit organisation Khan Academy.
Khan Academy founder Salman Khan thanked Elon Musk and Musk Foundation for the donation in a YouTube video posted on his channel.
“Elon, I hope you really feel good about this. This is going to allow us to accelerate all sorts of content. Our aspirations are all subjects; from kids to early stages of college. This will accelerate our science content, allow us to do more early learning, allow us to make the software and the practice that much more engaging,” Khan said in the video.
Khan Academy aims to provide free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere using ‘interactive practice problems, articles, and videos which help students succeed in math, biology, chemistry, physics, history, economics, finance, grammar, and many other topics’.
The resources have been translated into dozens of languages, and 15 million people around the globe learn on Khan Academy each month.
Khan Academy has over 120 million registered users, with up to 30 million students using the platform every month, revealed Khan in his video.
