All of the site's resources are available to anyone. It doesn't matter if you are a student, teacher, home–schooler, principal, adult returning to the classroom after 20 years, or a friendly alien just trying to get a leg up in earthly biology. The Khan Academy's materials and resources are available to you completely free of charge."

Open Educational Resources

"One of the more interesting and pressing problems facing users of the Internet is quickly finding and evaluating the resources they seek. Clearly, this is a problem not limited to education, but given that the top concern for most educators (and learners, for that matter) is lack of time, we needed to design more efficient and effective ways of identifying educational resources online. In collaboration with other open educational projects, and with several major search companies, we have tested out possible solutions to the 'search problem.'"
