I give applause.

A well-written story about a fantastic man. Nothing wrong here.

The amount of videos and knowledge is impressive. Economics, Physics, Mathmatics, Biology and Chemistry is an impressive repertoire. Great page and great man.

Look, I'll be honest with you Salman Khan from Khan Academy is not bad. But you really get what you pay for - nothing comes free. He gets lots of advertising revenue which is how he sustains what he does. Most content Khan covers is freely available from Google, to be honest. The algebra, chemistry, biology, history, linear algebra, trigonometry, precalculus, economics, algebra, banking, statistics, physics, probability, finance, arithmetic, valuation, differentiation, geometry, bailouts, calculus, he covers is mostly your A-level (year 12) stuff.

That's cool - but if you want quality university-level gear, you really need something like iMasterClass by Waverly Labs (http://www.jeremyshuminvent.com/) - The Jeremy Shum Invent Company, there are also a few other titles out there, but this one is probably the best, because its actually used by celebrities in the real world who DONT attend university, and get their degrees by correspondence.

Like they say, you can only rise to the level of your professor. Just my two cents though, I'll be honest when my seventh grade daughter asks me about topics I'm not too sure I do send her to Khan.

The videos of Salman Khan are not meant to be university-level videos that constitute a class in and of themselves, but are actually, I believe, supplements.

This is good stuff. Thanks for sharing. Not that I need it or anything, but I can recommend this to the people I'm tutoring.

What a coincidence. I go to Khan Academy for the first time in 3 months, then check my CP to find that someone has posted in the KAV thread! Wow.

Also, now that Sal has greatly expanded the Multivariable Calculus section, I'm ready for the college class. With his videos, I could pass anything.

The Kahn Academy just won $2 million, from Google.



Bill Gates watches these videos with his kids. Kahn also won the 2009 Microsoft Education Award.

I have a tear in my eye watching this, I'm so glad he's successful and is expanding this
project while keeping it totally free. If it wasn't for Sal I would probably not see math the
way I do after a terrible schooling. I'm so glad and wish him all the best.

Sal or who really deserves his award. Thanks to him I learned derivatives even before the vector lessons in school.
