A hedge-fund manager turned internet superstar, Sal Khan is the founder of the Khan Academy, a free online educational platform and not-for-profit organization that streams educational lessons on various topics via YouTube. Started as a simple online tutorial for his cousin, Khan’s YouTube videos quickly became the online educational phenomenon Khan Academy, with each new video attracting on average more than 20,000 hits. Called “Bill Gates’ Favorite Teacher” byFORTUNE magazine and a “pioneer” by Gates himself, Khan’s innovations are revolutionizing the way that people think about learning all over the world.
