Khan Academy and BitTorrent partner to deliver P2P educational video

Despite what some detractors say, torrents have plenty of legitimate uses -- one of which is helping organizations distribute digital content at little or no cost. That's especially important for a non-profit like Khan Academy, which is why its partnership with BitTorrent Inc. makes perfect sense.

Khan Academy is a provider of free, online educational videos. A wide range of subjects are covered, including physics, biology, trigonometry, calculus, and economics. The academy's vault currently includes more than 2,000 videos, and all are now accessible via BitTorrent apps. Founder Salman Khan told TorrentFreak, "BitTorrent is a great platform to help us fulfill our mission of providing world-class education to anyone, anywhere."

If you've got either uTorrent or BitTorrent Mainline installed, just install the Khan Academy app and get studying! Best of all, you'll also be helping out by seeding content and giving back to the community while you watch.
