Getty Museum and Khan Academy Partner in Online Learning

“The Getty Museum offers a treasure trove of educational videos about art history and art-making. Our YouTube channel features topics ranging from the mummification process (in all its gory glory) to the making of intricate and colorful medieval manuscripts. I’m happy to announce that dozens of these videos will now be featured by the Khan Academy, a non-profit that seeks to provide free world-class education to anyone, anywhere. As a first step, today more than 80 videos, created primarily by the Museum’s Collection Information and Access department, have been released on Khan Academy’s website. Moving forward, we will work with Khan Academy’s art historians, Dr. Beth Harris and Dr. Steven Zucker, to create new videos, critical-thinking exercises, and quizzes.” (via The Getty Iris)
