Commencement Address at Rice University, and MIT by Salman Khan of KhanAcademy
Two amazing speeches
Rice University (Located in the U.S. in the lovely town of Houston Texas) is just one of the many top Universities in the world, and graduating from such a prestigious place of learning is quite an accomplishment today.
Their beautiful campus is littered with bright minded students from all around the globe, and the professors there teach with such an intensity it's been consistently producing a great deal of responsible adults for years on end, whom tend to become some of the most highly educated, and well sought out professionals in our society by some of the top companies worldwide and mostly big businesses in America.
This article cover's much of how things tend to pan out for many students across the board here in the U.S. and how one inspirational new leader of education today, has landed some pretty instrumental speeches. To not only help wish them off into their professional and personal lives, but to also leave them with a genuine message from his heart.
Thoughts on College success today, and what to make of it
What tends to happen for many college graduates, is after they graduate some will walk slow or run quickly off into their lives with huge aim's to become successful professionals, hopefully if they can payback their student loans, and that's if they have any.Then quickly it all seems to begin to unfold soon after such a cool graduation ceremony, where responsibilities, depending on that specific persons given financial standing will begin to increase drastically.
The true reality is, not everyone will do well, and succeed in achieving their financial goals, career dreams, and unfortunately for many life might just bight them in the rear end, mainly because it takes a real survivor of tough times to make it in this rough global economy today.
The Victory of Sweet Success
Successful people like Salman Khan (Khan on Wikipedia) fits right in to this moment so precisely, where he has successfully made a truly empowering group of speeches, and he definitely made his presence felt as well as known, at both prestigious institutions. Ironically he was in such a position as many have been years back not once but twice.
His second go around though of experiencing some major set back and difficulties of uncertainty, was somewhat self inflicted, due to quitting his career paying job as a hedge fund analyst. He said he had done so to invest more time into building his very own online start-up company.
Now even though he had suffered some true dire straights and economic hardships during this moment in his life, he was still determined to tackle the odds of such financial difficulties he brought on himself. He would eventually with the help of some very kind people, inspire others such as Bill Gates himself, to help support his efforts to help pioneer his very own online revolutionary educational platform known as the KhanAcademy today, which is currently paving his way to greater successes in life.
Due to this amazing phenomenal online success, this cool genius of a guy truly stood out far above his actual graduating class back at MIT, as the one who has shocked the world in 2012 when it comes to learning & doing it at the pace of our new online technologies we currently utilize which is on the Internet, He’s 35 and he was a 4 times graduate from MIT, Salman Khan (His detailed story of success) is a visionary who has changed the way people utilize online educational tools, and communications.

Online Education is the key!
Youth are empowered today to do great things, but they need a good education to back them up, and many of the schools in the United States are simply failing to make the cut for our young people today. With our education system in the dumpster, innovators like Salman Khan and KhanAcademy, are going to bridge the gap in the way education is seen, conducted, and taught to our youth.
Many people are simply choosing to use online social applications, networks, and online platforms to make communications today in various ways. These communications are being done across online multiple networks, and are changing the way the world operates using technology and computing devices.
Mobile phone technology has also altered the way people communicate, and so imagine a world where you can literally use an Ipad, Ipod, mobile smart phones of all brands and models. The major advantage and benefits will surely come in, when teachers and more schools learn to use and fully accept these super computing devices in their classrooms, in elementary schools, high schools, colleges, and universities for educational purposes only.
For those who don’t choose to go to class like with college students, they will more then likely attend the online class sessions via web cam for ID purposes, and can fully engage virtually with the learning session, could be conducted by teleprompter shown using real time video conferencing communications, by either by a real life teacher/professor, or some automated system and or programmable virtual teacher (Computer Animated E-learning).
The power of technology in educating the world today
We are entering a whole new phase in our new computing age which is definitely taking over mostly every aspect of living on the ground, by utilizing many differing online portals to make real world connections, and so things like watching a youtube commencement speech from both the MIT and the Rice University campuses given by Salman Khan, is currently impacting many more people than just a radiant crowd of new graduates at a college or universities audience. Our life paths are all leading to the same point today, and this least resistant path has become based on a machines operating system, but the keys to it all is how people are learning to innovate from a non-functional status to a working one digitally, the usage of such technologies, and applying them to real world situations, and so learning to use these online tools are paramount.
Sal Khans speeches are set out to help teach the lessons of morality, strength of family, love for fellow human beings, and the use of mind of matter principles in which he never really states in those exact words, but he goes into explaining about the universe towards the end of each one in such a way that one can extract such a theme from its overall true purpose. He shows that he is truly concerned about humanity as a whole, and the fact that many more people need help in a huge way. I think that if more people were to think like he does, and to care for others as he has shown using his non-profit concepts for worldwide re-education, we all can seek to benefit from a sort of new way to achieve in learning and eventually making a solid living online or on the ground, and mostly to become much better individuals as well as members of society today. He is one true inspiration to us all.
