Thanks to the reporting system, individuals have the opportunity to track their progress while parents and teachers are provided with advanced tools. Khan Academy aims to support not only anyone who wishes to learn, but also students registered in formal education systems. Thus, Khan Academy content is also available for students and teachers through the Educational Informatics Network, shortly known as EBA, in collaboration with the Turkish Ministry of National Education.
