Samsung Media Solutions Center America (MSCA) has entered into a partnership with Khan Academy, a not-for-profit educational organization. The partnership commences with a pilot program, in which Samsung provides the Mountain View Whisman School District in California (MVWSD) with Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablets, preloaded with a new Khan Academy application developed by Samsung MSCA, which enable students to search and view Khan Academy’s extensive library of instructional videos.
“Khan Academy is excited to partner with Samsung and MVWSD to enable students in elementary and middle schools to have access to technology that can bring self-paced, personalized and mastery-based learning into the classroom,” says Sundar Subbarayan, Khan Academy School Implementation Lead.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 tablets enhances engagement by enabling students to draw, write, and take notes with Samsung’s intuitive S-Pen, while simultaneously viewing instructional videos and exercises. The devices also come with Meraki’s solution for unified management of the devices from a centralized dashboard. Training on the devices and the Khan application will be provided to teachers and students by Samsung MSCA.

The Learning Challenge Today’s organizations are constantly shifting to keep up with marketplace demand, and they look to learning to help keep their staff, customers and other stakeholders aligned to these continual shifts.
