Something New to Learn

There are a variety of ways to learn something new.  Reading, discussions, and workshops are just a few examples.  Given our technological advances, more and more people are turning to / experimenting with online videos as another method for teaching and learning.  The Khan Academy is a one-man university of sorts online.  There is now a whole non-profit team behind the project, and the number of videos and teaching endeavors is expanding.

 

Some of his tutorials may be useful to you.  The main website is at http://www.khanacademy.org/The homepage says”With a library of over 2,400 videos covering everything from arithmetic to physics, finance, and history and 125 practice exercises, we’re on a mission to help you learn whatever you want, whenever you want, at your own pace.”  What’s great, too, is that the whole video selection is free to viewers.

 

CNN posted a piece about the Khan Academy today as well:
