Celebrating its 75th Anniversary in 2013, STFA Group Supports World-Class Education in Turkish.
The Global Classroom: A free world-class education for anyone anywhere..
Khan Academy is a nonprofit organization with the mission of providing a free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere. Founded by Sal Khan in 2008 and based in the United States, Khan Academy is an online learning platform, which offers digital educational resources and videos in 36 languages today. It doesn’t matter if the learner is a student, teacher, home-schooler, principal, scholar or an adult returning to the classroom after 20 years; Khan Academy’s learning materials are available to the whole world completely free of charge.
Khan Academy TR was established as the very first international initiative of the platform thanks to STFA. To celebrate STFA’s 75th Anniversary, Khan Academy TR started in 2013 as a social responsibility project to support modern and world-class education in Turkish. Khan Academy TR is supported by an STFA foundation, Bilimsel ve Teknik Yayınları Çeviri Vakfı (The Foundation for Translation of Scientific and Technical Publications). Sezai Türkeş founded the Foundation in 1992 with a mission to support quality education in Turkish. With help from more than five hundred volunteers, the Foundation has been translating Khan Academy videos, website and earning materials with an aim to strengthen equal opportunities for all in Turkish education and to provide a free learning resource to all Turkish speaking peoples of the world
Khan Academy TR offers the second largest Khan Academy content library after the English language. While more than 7,500 Khan Academy videos are now available in Turkish, Khan Academy TR also offers an option for subtitles for the hearing-impaired users. Having delivered over 60 million online lessons, Khan Academy TR has become a leading digital content provider and an important actor in Turkish education. Today, reaching out to every classroom in Turkey, Khan Academy TR does not only support formal education in schools but also supports lifelong learning for everyone with the motto “You only have to know one thing: you can learn anything!” Join the largest Turkish-speaking classroom in the world and you can learn almost anything for free.
