Hello parents and teachers,

Resources for schools, teachers, and parents 

We know there’s a lot on your minds—from health and safety to child care and jobs. These are exceptionally challenging times as we close schools to stop the spread of COVID-19, and we want to do everything we can to support you.

Khan Academy is a free resource for students, teachers, and parents.

We offer free lessons in math, science and humanities from kindergarten through the early years of college. Students can use our exercises, quizzes, and instructional videos to learn and master skills. They will get immediate feedback and encouragement.

Resources to support you during school closures.

We are having daily (weekdays) 12 pm PT/3 pm EST live streams on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter for students, parents, and teachers navigating school closures. India specific content can also be found on YouTube-India (English) and YouTube-India (Hinglish)

Here are guides we’ve created for you:

Khan Academy is a free resource for students, teachers, and parents.

What is Khan Academy? We offer exercises, quizzes, and tests so students can practice and master skills, as well as instructional videos to help students learn or review material.

  • Khan Academy has a library of Indian curriculum-aligned lessons covering through grade 1-12 math to early college math, grammar, science, computing, and more.
  • Students can practice skills with exercises, quizzes, and mastery challenges and get immediate feedback and support.
  • Khan Academy is available in 40 languages including Hindi, Kannada, Gujarati and many more
  • Students without laptops can access the Khan Academy website or use the Khan Academy app on smartphones.

Teachers get tools and reports designed specifically for them.

  • Teachers can easily assign students an entire course - 10th grade Physics or 10th grade Math, for example—a specific unit, or a specific skill.
  • Teachers can easily track student progress with our reports.

We have several resources including a step-by-step Welcome Guide and a series of online videos featuring real teachers demonstrating how to use Khan Academy to assign instructional videos and practice skills and monitor student progress.
