If we had to name just one advantage of the implementation of the Internet, that has to be the possibility to disseminate knowledge and bring it closer to the people that, due to one reason or another, used to have trouble accessing this knowledge. Khan Academy appeared with this premise in mind, on the one hand, and with the intention of making sure that nobody has to waive education due to economic problems, on the other.
