A plan to expand educational offerings to "anyone, anywhere"

On today's CBS This Morning, Sal Khan, founder and executive director of Khan Academy, discussed his non-profit organization's mission to provide free world-class education to anyone anywhere. Since its founding six years ago, Khan Academy has made available more than 3,200 online educational videos, and soon its materials will be translated into 12 languages.

Speaking with Charlie Rose and Gayle King for the interview, Khan described plans for improving and expanding his organization and noted that Stanford's medical school is going to launch several courses. The courses will be "free for the world, as well, and we're just going to try to make the entire experience as engaging as possible," Khan said.
