AT&T awarded $2.25 million to Khan Academy to support the development of a mobile education app.

Telecommunications company AT&T has awarded a $2.25 million grant to online education resource provider Khan Academy to support the group’s enhanced mobile platform that includes a new, interactive mobile app. According to the company, the Khan Academy app will help students learn math and more by enabling them to access more than 150,000 interactive, common core–aligned exercises with instant feedback and step-by-step hints for each question. The app adjusts to provide interactive exercise recommendations that are just right—not too hard, not too easy—and a friendly guide through the world of math, the company said. The app also harnesses the power of showing and stepping through the student’s work with an expansive scratchpad, and a student’s work automatically syncs between the tablet and khanacademy.org, so progress and recommendations are always up-to-date, the company said.

    Nicholas King
    Editor

    Nicholas King has served as editor of Corporate Philanthropy Report since 2007, and he continues to be impressed with the philanthropic efforts of the nation’s business sector.

    Drawing on an educational background in English and environmental policy, Nicholas began his journalism career in 2000 when he was brought on as editor of Environmental Laboratory Washington Report, a niche-market subscription-based newsletter serving the environmental testing industry. After seven years of honing his craft, Nicholas expanded his writing/editing portfolio to an entirely new field of interest - corporate philanthropy. As editor of Corporate Philanthropy Report, he stays abreast of the latest developments affecting corporate giving—and the charitable/nonprofit sector more broadly—providing his readers the “need to know” information vital for making the best use of their limited charitable dollars.
