uTorrent App Offers Free Khan Academy Education Videos

BitTorrent Inc. and Khan Academy team up to release a new video catalogue app that offers over 2,000 educational videos to the BitTorrent community.

Ever since BitTorrent Inc. launched the App Studio it’s been looking for ways to collaborate with artists and content creators to use it as distribution tool that reaches the hundreds of millions of users around the globe.

It’s in this spirit that it’s teamed up with Khan Academy to create a new video catalogue app that offers over 2,000 award-winning educational videos.

“BitTorrent is a great platform to help us fulfill our mission of providing world-class education to anyone, anywhere,” said Salman Khan, founder and executive director at the Khan Academy. “BitTorrent offers a unique opportunity to video creators and publishers. Their technology allows users to download large video files quickly, plus it requires no costly hosting or infrastructure on our end – an important factor for a non-profit.”

Some of the classes include:

  • Introduction to Evolution and Natural Selection
  • Introduction to the Atom
  • Algebra: Solving Inequalities
  • Scale of the Galaxy
  • History of the French Revolution

The Khan Academy app is available for both the BitTorrent mainline and uTorrent clients.

“We’re honored to support the Khan Academy’s vision of bringing knowledge and education to the world,” said Shahi Ghanem, chief strategist at BitTorrent. “The Khan Academy app is a perfect example of why we created our App Studio platform: to help content creators connect with our global user base. In this instance we also enjoy the benefit of empowering a partner to provide tens of millions of people with free access to world-class educational content. This is a truly worthy cause. We look forward to continuing our work with the Khan Academy and other socially-conscious content creators as we foster new content distribution models.”

Other popular apps include the VLC media player and TorrentCasts apps.
