This year lynda.com is the proud season sponsor of UCSB’s Arts & Lectures series, and we were privileged to have one of their lecturers, Salman Khan of Khan Academy, deliver a private lecture at our facility before his public appearance through their program.
Mr. Khan has gained worldwide recognition as a pioneer in video-based education, revolutionizing the way math and a growing range of new subjects are being taught to a worldwide audience. He started recording YouTube videos for his cousins to teach them math, and eventually left his career as a successful analyst at a hedge fund to start a non-profit platform for his videos to be delivered free to the world.
For more information about Sal Khan’s philosophy and where he got his start be sure to check out the Sal Khan TED talk.
Here is a short video clip of parts of our lynda.com private lecture and interview. Enjoy!
