Some people need help with a single subject. Other people can’t afford college, but want or need the knowledge and skills that come with a higher education. Still others might need help with the most basic of life’s skills. Regardless of what your needs are, Khan Academy can probably help.
Khan Academy has thousands of videos and lectures prerecorded on such diverse subjects as finance, algebra, basic arithmetic, history, biology, computer science, and much more. The best part is you can join the academy for free and study at your own speed. I’m currently reviewing algebra so I can help my daughter with her homework.
Khan Academy is turning education upside down! Teachers are having their students watch video presentations from the academy at home and then having them do their homework in class! Teachers can actually move around in class and teach instead of standing in front of the classroom giving lectures until the bell rings.
They’re also an incredible resource for home schoolers. Khan Academy leads you through their subjects step by step (and even rewards you with merit badges and points for your educational achievements!). Khan Academy also keeps track of your progress so you have a record of everything you’ve done. It’s really easy to join! Actually you’re almost a member already! You click Longin at the upper right of their homepage and use your Gmail or Facebook userid and password to become a member. It’s that easy!
Please go to Khan Academy and look at all they have to offer. Just “click here” to go there!
