Participate in the Khan Academy's New Video Competition

Tuesday, November 26, 2013

Khan Academy is looking for the next generation of health educators to participate in a new competition designed to spark innovation and enthusiasm around using technology to develop the next generation of health content. Those participating will create videos and questions on one of the following topics areas: anaphylactic shock, iron-deficiency anemia, hypertension, asthma, congestive heart failure, pneumonia, stroke, bronchiolitis, sickle-cell anemia, and emphysema.

Khan Academy will identify winning submissions that demonstrate outstanding video-based instruction. Winners will then be invited to further sharpen their technical skills by participating in an exclusive week-long training program in March 2014 with Khan Academy educators. These individuals may also be invited to become Khan Academy content creators. Submissions will be accepted until winners are chosen or by January 17, 2014. This competition is presented in collaboration with Jonas Center for Nursing Excellence and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing. For more details, visit the competition website.
