BRIEF: Salman Khan, founder of Khan Academy, talks future of education today at Cal Poly Pomona

POMONA, Nov 13, 2012 (San Bernardino County Sun - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- Six years ago, hedge fund analyst Salman Khan created online videos to tutor his cousin in math. On Tuesday, he has more than 435,000 subscribers on YouTube and his videos have been watched almost 205 million times.

In 2009, when merely tens of thousands of people were watching his videos every day, he realized his hobby could -- and should -- be his life's calling. He quit his job and founded the Khan Academy, a non-profit dedicated to "providing a free world-class education for anyone anywhere," according to the company's website, KhanAcademy.org.

Khan will be speaking about reinventing education at a sold-out presentation and question and answer session at noon at Cal Poly Pomona.


He's been hailed as a major innovator in education by luminaries such as Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and Bill Gates. And this month, he's on the cover of Forbes Magazine.

His videos are available online at YouTube.com/KhanAcademy.

Watch for updates from Khan's speech.
