What would be the best way to make Khan Academy go International?
Khan Academy is great for English speaking kids, but what about the other 5-6 billions? How to translate these videos with biggest bang for our buck? Each method has pros and cons.
+ fast & easy, consistent across many translators, many videos at once
- focus split between text and method, conflict between written and spoken
+ no conflict between languages, no split in focus
- Khan's writing in English, 1 tutor is slow - many break consistency
Voice-over + subtitles for writing
+ no conflict between languages, no split in focus, writing translated also
- speed of translation vs consistency of tutors
Remake in new language
+ all the benefits of Khan's original in the native language
- everything from scratch, slow and difficult, speed vs consistency (again)
Opinions, suggestions, corrections...?
