Parents can now create accounts for their children on Khan Academy

Developer Ben Komalo has made it possible for parents to create accounts for their children who are under 13.

Parents, to create an account for your child, visit:

Child accounts have several safety features:

  • The parent who creates the child account becomes the child’s permanent coach.
  • The child cannot enter certain information (e.g.. email, full name) in their profile, nor make their profile public.
  • The parent has the option of disabling the child from adding other people as coaches. (See What is a coach? for more details on coaching.)
  • The parent manages the child’s password and can change it at any time for any reason.
  • The child cannot post public messages in discussion forums.
