Have gotten sooo tired of doing the lecture thing… now spend classtime doing relevant stuff. But we use Blackboard and it sucks. Reply TheSage555 says: March 17, 2013 at 12:39 am It bothers me that the very intelligent among our younger generations go to be hedge fund managers. I wish more would go into education, engineering, and science where they could be of great help.

And the world will see how much traditional Universities were working more on the lines of knowledge prevention than actual education.

Reply FlyingCakeBomb says: March 18, 2013 at 5:40 am How* Reply LynneSkysong says: March 18, 2013 at 6:36 pm I love Khan academy. I'm an engineer now, but due to some scheduling conflicts back in high school, I never got to take trig. I was taking physics, the teacher also taught calc, and he waived the trig requirement since I knew the basics from physics. Needless to say, I had a lot of holes in my math knowledge and Khan academy did wonders in filling those. Reply rashid alhusan says: March 18, 2013 at 11:21 pm 9:58 OMG !!!

Reply envirogrunt says: March 19, 2013 at 12:47 am Finland does it the best of any country. Home schooling is ultimately the best way to educate your children. Government funded indoctrination centers turn your kids into mindless little shits. Reply Ricois says: March 19, 2013 at 4:02 am Will videos evententually be translated? Reply iskiera999 says: March 21, 2013 at 2:38 pm KHAAAAN !!! Reply NerdExplorer says: March 22, 2013 at 12:46 am I can't agree that homeschooling is the best, many adults don't have a working knowledge of many of the advanced topics taught in highschool (or its equivalent). Not only will the education fall short, but the socialization aspect of school is quite important. I'm not saying that the school system is efficient- far from it. I haven't met a socially well-adjusted homeschooled person, though, and I've been friends with more than a couple. And it makes their life in college quite overwhelming imo Reply paulceltics says: March 22, 2013 at 3:06 am i dont understand why they have to replicate everything! Reply envirogrunt says: March 22, 2013 at 3:19 pm Statistically home schooled children do better on standardized tests. You are right that if the parents are not intelligent enough to teach, then they should not. As to integration into a social scene, that is where sports teams, clubs, volunteer initiatives etc come into play. My daughter takes piano, soccer and is bilingual; I have a good education and if I had the means to, I could home school her to an ivy league education. Its more the unavailability of the parents that dont make it viable. Reply Elon Musketeer says: March 25, 2013 at 2:21 pm Because I haven't seen it. Reply brenda garcia says: September 7, 2013 at 12:23 am Khan academy is what we need to be moving towards as educators. Mr.Khan contact me when you wish to add bilingual learning to your academy. We will be talking for days….be prepared. Reply Jimmy McPherson says: October 27, 2013 at 8:02 pm KKHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAN!!!!!

I wish my kids school would start this. Reply bhuvaneshwari shinde says: September 28, 2018 at 5:54 pm Really awesome gyu. I just love Khan academy and it's content . Everything that he said was directly applicable to me. I took maths as my subject in class 11 12 (India) . But even after I completed my 11 I felt like I was not good enough. Then I started using Khan academy and filled my previous gaps of basic algebra , trigonometry etc. And after that things started getting interesting and easy. Not only that it even helped me with other new topics. It was not as if my teachers weren't good or I didn't like the subject but all those gaps in my previous classes held me back. So thank you for helping me Khan academy. Reply Rael Brickey says: January 11, 2019 at 1:48 am Sal Kahn is the best!

I LOVE Sal! I can understand Sal! Reply Joi Lozada says: July 16, 2019 at 11:41 pm One key factor of Khan's effectiveness, apart from his superior knowledge, is how his voice sounds patient and caring on his videos. He stands out from among the hundreds of youtube teachers out there. Well done mate!
