Khan Academy videos are being used to supplement clasroom learning in Mexico, Uruguay, and Mongolia among other OLPC deployments.
A project is starting to come together around developing and maintaining an offline package for the XS school server that presents and organizes KA videos.
Getting and playing videos
KA web app
- The web app, and an offline version
- The Google Code site for the app
- A Windows-only offline server with scripts that let you pull down sets of videos. (Linux port needed!)
There are various options for downloading videos, including via the offline Web app above.
- Other online players
- Skoool is developing an online KA video player
- Existing translation efforts
- A list of subtitled and dubbed languages
- Ways to help translate
- A summary of the process including how to real-time update their subtitles, and how to sign up to become a dubber
- Suggestions for how to help and a translator's reference
