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 an excellent point, Char. These videos are a powerful resource to help solidify one's conceptual understanding of the topics he covers. His epsilon-delta explanation led me to an "ah-ha" moment, something for which I thirst endlessly. While not a class in and of themselves, his videos are an excellent supplement to the corresponding courses.

I really admire him as a person, and I greatly respect his efforts to make science available, and approachable, to those who can't afford a formal education.

Yes, people should go look at Khan's videos instead of asking basic first year physics or calculus stuff.

Wow, just seeing this for the first time. Might use his videos as a good complimentary guide to the textbooks :D Probably work best hand-in-hand

Ok, I had seen a few of his videos on youtube. Worthy of a google award for sure. Now I've seen on his site just how many he has. Is nominating for a nobel prize and/or sainthood taking it too far?

His videos are really great!! I tend to watch them to give me an understanding, and only afterwards look at my lessons for more formal definitions and more confusing explanations.

There's a Cosmology and Astronomy section posted on the website, this was very unexpected. I hope he makes a Quantum Mechanics playlist soon.
