This site now gives you an access to over 70 educational Hindi videos and quizzes for class 5, 6, 7 and 8 students. It also offers various English courses for students. Unlike private tutors, KA will is completely free. It will not charge the user for accessing the content and courses available on the site.
Launched by Salman Khan as a nonprofit organization, KA has changed the way kids learn in the US. Before this service became popular, many parents in the United States used to rely on coaching classes to make sure their kids are competitive and score good grades in the schools. Now parents make their kids use Khan Academy instead of sending them to private tuitions. The Khan Academy might have a similar impact here in India.
