How to make the best use of Khan Academy resources
Khan Academy today catering about thousands of Educational Institutes and students from all over the world has totally revolved the concept of teaching different subjects ranging from Math to Science to History to Finance through Videos.
With a library of more than 2800 interactive lesson videos, Khan makes sure that educational resources are available for anyone, anywhere to use, without any restrictions or bars beyond the need to have a video-capable device. Even in countries or educational institutions that disallow YouTube access, or don’t have Internet access, Khan Videos are still available in a variety of ways like:
-The (NASA affiliated) Lewis Center for Educational Research brings the content into community colleges and charter schools around the country.
-World Possible is creating offline snapshots to distribute in rural, developing regions with limited or no access to the Internet.
-YouTube videos can be downloaded and saved to your desktop to view later.
In addition to free educational videos for both instructors and learners, the Khan Academy offers tools to teachers around the world, such as practice tests and assessment tools. Many schools in the United States and elsewhere are experimenting with Khan Academy content to “flip” their classrooms, blend traditional classrooms with online components, supplement their online courses, and more.
Studies establish that students learn better with combinations of video and text rather than by text alone. However, educators and learners must understand that these resources only supplement existing learning programs, rather than replacing them.
Overall, the Khan Academy is an important leap in the e-learning domain, providing effective educational content that teachers can use to drive their online or traditional classroom teaching effectively.
This free resource has truly made education accessible for large numbers of students around the world, a promise that politicians often make, but can’t seem to keep.
