Amara-Coursera/Khan Academy

Amara, a crowd source subtitling platform that engages volunteers from around the world to translate online videos, is being adopted by Coursera and Khan Academy, to make academic video content globally accessible.

Launched in 2010, Amara has already added more than 200,000 subtitles in 100 different languages to online videos.

Coursera recently reached 1 million users, and its volunteer translation community is working to subtitle more than 1,200 college lectures. Some lectures are already available in more than 10 languages — a number that is quickly growing.
