Met Museum and Khan Academy make art education resources freely available online

Recently the Met Museum announced a partnership with Khan Academy to make Met-produced educational resources available online. Khan Academy’s global reach was an important consideration in establishing the partnership, according to the Met’s CEO Thomas P. Campbell:

“Khan Academy is an impressive, forward-thinking partner with an extraordinary vision to reach learners everywhere. Together we can build on the Met’s robust program of online content to engage a worldwide community. I want the Met’s audience to reflect the global breadth of our collection, and this collaboration will bring us significantly closer to achieving that goal.”

Currently over 100 Met-produced videos are collected on the Khan Academy site. Khan Academy’s operations are supported by a range of philanthropic and other organizations.
