    Mexican telecom tycoon Carlos Slim to finance Khan Academy's online classes in Spanis

    Mexican telecom tycoon Carlos Slim to finance Khan Academy's online classes in Spanish

    Published January 14, 2013
    Associated Press

    MEXICO CITY – Mexican tycoon Carlos Slim says his foundation is funding the translation of thousands of Khan Academy online classes into Spanish.

    The telecommunications billionaire says the Carlos Slim Foundation shares the academy's goal to make "a free world-class education available to everyone."
    Khan Academy offers thousands of free video lectures on YouTube in subjects like mathematics, physics and art history.

    More than 500 videos have been translated into Spanish by Mexican professors, so far.

    Slim says he will also fund online classes about Mexican history to be added to the website. He says funding for the not-for-profit organization comes from a 4 billion peso ($315 million) investment over the next three years to expand internet connectivity in Mexico.

    Slim made the announcement Monday together with Khan Academy's founder, Salman Khan.

    It would have been much cheaper to just dub in Spanish text at the bottom of the screen Carlos.

    What about the lip synch?

    I will be interested to see if the Mexican History classes include the Aztlan rhetoric that the US stole the SW.

    I hope these are translated into English.
