From the Editors

Duck Duck MOOC
When Salman Khan posted his first tutorials on YouTube, he simply wanted to teach math concepts to his friends and family. He had no intention of disrupting the delivery of conventional education. But once he realized that he had tapped into a tremendous demand for knowledge, Khan created a YouTube channel in 2006; he quit his job in 2009 to focus full-time on creating a library of online videos teaching everything from linear algebra to art history to macroeconomics. Today, the Khan Academy offers more than 2,400 instructional videos, which have received nearly 900 million views and attracted more than 2.7 million subscribers.
