Khan Academy

Standard

Khan academy was started by a young man named Salmon Khan. I have read a little bit about this academy but am not totally convinced in its actions. Basically the Khan academy is based on a virtual classroom Please Correct me if I’m wrong. this classroom is run using a huge amount of online videos covering a rather large range of subjects from mathematics to Science and physics. The Khan academy also uses online excercises that are self paced that generate problems based on skill levels for students to solve this is all well and good if you come from a home that has unlimited internet access and supportive parents hence why I am not completly sold on the idea. It would be good however if you wanted to brush up on some skills that you didn’t quite get right while you were at school. I think I will let you be the judge on this one.
