Monday, Dec. 14, 2009

Michael Kevane says Salman Khan's "Kahn Academy" online earned its Tech Laureate prize at this year's Tech Awards, sponsored by the Tech Museum in San Jose. Khan, who began online tutorials to help out his niece long-distance, was one of three laureates in the education section.

As chair of the education judging panel at the Tech Awards, Kevane--chair of the Economics at Santa Clara University--said the panel was impressed by Khan's approach. "He really showed people the right way to do video content," Kevane said in an interview with SF Gate.
