Introducing Khan Academy for Windows Phone 7

By on 11/6/2010

ApplicationIconVery proud to introduce a project I’ve been working on for the past few weeks. A Windows Phone 7 app to browse and watch the Khan Academy videos.

I’ve been extremely impressed with the quality and value of the videos since I discovered the site a few years ago. And it was no surprise when Bill Gates called Sal Khan his favorite teacher.

I wanted a way to contribute to the cause, and with Microsoft’s new platform just launching, and the fact that I wanted a project to focus on for the Windows Phone it seemed a natural fit.

In keeping with the spirit of the Khan Academy’s open source development ethos, I am making this project open source as well on GitHub:

I plan on maturing the app over time with better styling, and more features, especially as I learn more about the silverlight/phone platform. The project is almost ready to submit to the marketplace, just need to complete a bit more testing … so keep an eye on this space for more info about when that happens.
