Congratulations to Khan Academy for winning first prize in the 2012 Webby awards for educational web sites. From what my students tell me, it is by far their favourite source for supplementary math and physics study material. The depth and breadth of the site’s video tutorials are amazing. Before seeing the above ABC news video a few months ago, I had no idea of Khan Academy’s humble origin. We have all heard those stories about two guys somewhere who invented some “killer app” in their parents’ garage but Sal Khan took the paradigm further by working alone in a closet (literally) in an effort to help just one person.
Though long overdue, I have finally added Khan Academy link to the Tutor Resources list on my home page.
