Khan Academy

There are many examples of online learning sites. eduFire uses live video learning. Grokit uses a game environment. Curriki shares lesson plans and curricula. Khan Academy shares a content-rich set of videos.

“The Khan Academy is a non-profit educational organization created in 2006, by Salman Khan. With the stated mission of “providing a high quality education to anyone, anywhere”, the website supplies a free online collection of nearly 2,300 micro lectures via video tutorials stored onYouTube teaching mathematics, history, finance, physics, chemistry, biology, astronomy, and economics. – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khan_academy

Khan Academy is an excellent resource whether a student decides to use it as a self-study tool or a teacher decides to use it as additional material for his or her lesson plan.

The philosophy behind this site and how to use it can be read here. You can learn how this idea came to life here.

Bill Gates once said that “I’d say we’ve moved about 160 IQ points from the hedge fund category to the teaching-many-people-in-a-leveraged-way category. It was a good day his wife let him quit his job.” – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khan_academy#History
