Good Afternoon Instructors,

You've heard me talk about TED before (if you'd like a reminder of what TED is, please simply click on the TED tab on the right side of this blog page), now I'd like you to learn about another great lecture site called Khan Academy.  A great way to learn about Khan Academy is actually via a TED lecture from the founder of Khan Academy.  If you click here you'll be taken to the TED lecture given by Salman Khan.

Then, to learn more about Khan, browse the Khan library, and give it a try yourself, please click here. 

This is a very solid and very reputable online educational source that can add audio and video elements to our online courses to make the course material that much more attainable for our students.  I strongly encourage you check out this site and its many wonderful video resources.  And if you teach any of the following types of courses, checking out this site is a must:
  • Math
  • Business
  • Finance
  • Statistics
  • Science
Once you've had a chance to check it out, let me know what you think!

Thanks and have a great rest of the week.
