The Only Thing on my TV is Khan
February 1, 2010
The Khan Academy is a series of over one thousand videos (and growing) teaching subjects ranging from calculus…
Whoa! Too complicated. REWIND!
Ahh, that’s more my speed.
Salman Khan, the teacher in every video (and I think the sole creator) has a soothing voice and his lo-fi blackboard brings a delicious, no-nonsense appeal. Videos are each about ten minutes long, and Khan Academy is developing a web application of practice exercises (still in alpha testing).
The subject matter is heavily oriented towards math, science, and economics, but maybe one day a few more super-experts will step up to teach the rest of the academic gamut.
