For Moderators

What's a moderator?

Khan Academy moderators help keep our community and student discussions useful, on-topic, and clean. They are granted special privileges and tools to keep an eye on all questions, answers, and comments generated by the Khan Academy community.

How to become a moderator

We typically recruit new moderators by finding mature, dedicated members of the community who answer a very large number of user questions over a long period of time.
