Khan Academy not available for Iranians

About two years ago, when I first found out about Khan Academy, I got so interested in it and its idea that I decided to dedicated my time and translate some of the videos into Persian. The next day I lost all my steam when I learned Khan Academy’s website doesn’t give service to Iranians. This is different than Iran’s local filtering, it is a denial of service from outside of Iran:

Today, I had the chance to attend to¬†Salman Khan’s talk at CMU. Fortunately, I had the chance of talking with Mr. Khan at the end of the talk and discuss this issue with him. He said that he wasn’t aware of this and he will look into it. I cross my fingers to see this issue being resolved. Having access to free and good education should be a human right and nobody should be denied from it.
