A Case Study: The Amgen Foundation and Khan Academy

Written by Eduardo Cetlin, President, Amgen Foundation

After I first posted about our renewed partnership with Khan Academy in February, we were excited to be included the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s recent report on how businesses help create greater educational opportunities. In it, there’s a case study about our work with Khan Academy to help strengthen their biology content. Recently, we’ve also been fortunate to talk with two Amgen staff members, Jeff Reagan and Catherine Grimm, who volunteered with Khan Academy during that initial pilot partnership, as well as some students who used the Khan Academy biology content to further their studies.

These discussions only helped reinforce our position around the imperative of enhancing access to high quality biology content and excitement around the power of technology to advance that for students and learners around the world.

Head on over to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce website to read the case study.
