Why an "optimized" version of Khan Academy OFFLINE?

One might well ask this question since it is based on fine work found at http://code.google.com/p/khanacademy/ and I'm glad you asked.
In early December of 2010, I was approached with the question of having iTunes installed on our student netbooks and the complications we might experience with that. I suggested possibilities involving other avenues of content download and the considerable hard drive space available on the netbooks for offline storage. Khan Academy came up briefly during this discussion, so I subsequently spent some time familiarizing myself with that, ever eager to be knowledgeable on alternatives to iTunes.
The next day I was called in again to discuss offline content on netbooks with emphasis on Khan Academy. By this time I was a little more acquainted with Khan and aware that there were projects already in place regarding offline use of that subject matter.
… to be continued smile
