Whether you are a student looking to brush up some skills for an upcoming exam such as the SAT or ACT or a tutor looking for an online complement to your instructional course you’ve hit the motherload! I’d like to introduce you to the Khan Academy, a free YouTube channel with more than a thousand instructional videos, teaching one concept at a time.
The Khan Academy was launched by Salman Khan, an ex-financial analyst from silicon valley who quit his hedge fund job to create and deliver these instructional home lectures from his home. He has now taught hundreds of thousands of students from all over the world who are really taking to these bite sized lectures to brush and learn concepts.
Mr. Khan is no Ph.D. but his personalized videos are taking the online learning world by storm. Enjoy his informative interview with Brian Lehrer from NPR in New York and let us know what you think.
Do you believe that the future of online learning will be delivered online in this personalized fashion?
