Kahn Academy Lite Website

I’ve just come across this really great project – creating an offline version of the Kahn Academy that can run across a network and gather student data in the same way as the full online version. It looks like a really great idea, and will run even on super cheap hardware like the Raspberry Pi. If you know anyone working in education in poorer countries, or anywhere with internet connection issues and a wish to explore computer based learning, please let them know this exists – it could have a real impact!

I’m working on a longer post about Kahn Academy and it’s detractors, and I think this project is a good example of how some of the criticisms – which tend to focus on the impact of KA in developed countries – miss the wider benefits of the Kahn Academy project providing a high quality set of resources available for free worldwide.
