At the Khan Academy you can learn just about anything, from the anatomy of a neuron to the French Revolution to the details of Henry Paulson’s 2008 bailout plan—all without leaving the house. Founder Sal Khan describes his non-profit, online instructional website as a stand-alone virtual school that anyone can learn anything from, for free. The site supplies a free online collection of over 2,200 micro lectures via video tutorials stored on YouTube. Given that more and more of our students are connecting online, learning online may be the logical next step. Teachers looking for refreshers and accessible resource material could find great value in Khan. If you are a parent, student, or teacher, please check it out and let us know what you think.
