Does anyone know if there is something similar to the khan academy for limudei kodesh?
I'm looking for something like this just with the whiteboard aspect that khan academy uses.

I am working on something that I think will answer what you are asking. I started a youtube channel that teaches in a khan academy style how to learn gemarah. I think that when the question comes up of whether or not we should have a jewish KA, the most important thing to realize is what KA actually is. Long torah lectures do not fit the style of what makes KA so effective.
For example, most of the topics on KA are skills that build on other topics and are short and encapsulated. (math and physics, are a bunch of concepts that all build up to a larger thing.)
Torah can never be replaced in toto by a bunch of video lectures since an integral part of studying torah is by having a rebbe.
That being said, the skills required to learn torah can be taught in a KA style. (I would think that an advanced degree of lumdus would require learning under a rebbe for many years though)
It's not a simple discussion. There are definitely parts of torah that can be made into a KA format, and I think will do really well; however, there are also many things that cannot be taught like that.
Those are some thoughts on the discussion. If you would like to check my channel out (mostly focused on gemarah reading skills) you can find it on youtube under the channel name Talmud Tutor
TorahLive is a very interesting equivalent of Khan Academy in the Jewish world, producing high-quality content with extensive video and computer effects.
