With an idea like this, along with the progress already made, it’s vital that K.A. takes the correct next steps to keep the ball rolling so to speak.

They are doing so in terms of future idea’s.  Peer-to-peer tutoring is one of many possible idea’s being explored.  This involves pupils helping to tutor other students via the Khanacademy website.  It would match students who excel in a certain topic with another student who is struggling with it.  This is a very interesting proposal as it helps both students.  it helps the better understanding student to understand the topic even further and rewards too could be offered to him/her.  And obviously it also helps the student with lesser understanding to gain much needed tutoring from a more personal approach.

Math-camps are also being rolled out to test the helpfulness of K.A. on a wider scale than the pilot schemes are currently doing( limited to a certain number of classes at the moment).

The translation of videos is also in progress.  As of today, 646 videos have been translated into Estonian, which is the language with the most translations.  The translating of the videos is a completely voluntarily dependent.

K.A. also has grown from being a one man show.  The website now has 23 full-time employees as well as many more part-time workers and volunteers.  It has 8 new job positions on its wanted section, which shows the websites further intended growth.  Among the jobs are mobile developers, Salman Khan has said in the past that an mobile app may be possible in the not too distant future.
