SpaceX founder and Tesla CEO Elon Musk has donated $5 million to American non-profit educational organization Khan Academy in a bid to boost online education.

Musk made the donation through Musk Foundation, a charity he founded with brother Kimbal in 2002, reports Outlook magazine.

On Tuesday, Khan Academy founder Salman Khan expressed his gratitude to Musk through social media platform Twitter and with a video uploaded to YouTube.

"I just want to give a huge shout and thank you to Elon Musk and everyone at the Musk foundation. For their credible generous support for Khan Academy, they just recently gave a $5 million donation to Khan academy," the Khan Academy founder said in the video.

He also said the money would go towards improving the content and software of Khan Academy, to make it more engaging for students and teachers across the globe.

Khan Academy (www.khanacademy.org) is a non-profit educational organisation created in 2006 by educator Salman Khan to provide "a free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere."

It provides free online materials and resources to support personalised education for learners of all ages.

The Khan Academy platform contains practice exercises, instructional videos, dashboard analytics and teacher tools which empower learners in and outside of the classroom to study at their own pace.

The Musk Foundation donates to various sectors, including renewable energy and advocacy, paediatric research, and engineering education.
