Development and Influence

Khan University has received more and more social recognition, and its scale is getting bigger and bigger. Since 2006, Khan College has only a teacher in several years, and now there are 32 teachers to join, and there is a huge volunteer team. The field of video tutorials is also expanding, from mathematics basic core courses - arithmetic, geometric, algebra, calculus, physical, biological, chemical, medical, art, finance, historical courses involving "French Revolution", "Vietnam War "Wait, the content is very broad."
