Learn almost anything for free…and no it’s not YouTube!

24 Mar

Although YouTube has great tutorials, but this freebie is about learning subjects you learned in school or it could be a helpful tool for you to refresh some of those subjects you learned. Great also for students and teachers. Teachers can sign up students for lessons. What a great way to learn for free!  So there is such thing as free education…well, again, it’s almost free.  You just don’t get a diploma saying you graduated from college.  This merely is an educational tool that so many individuals and companies donate their time to provide you with this.

Khan Academy is an organization on a mission. We’re a not-for-profit with the goal of changing education for the better by providing a free world-class education for anyone anywhere.

How it works for students

Students can make use of our extensive video library, interactive challenges, and assessments from any computer with access to the web.

  1. Complete custom self-paced learning tool
  2. A dynamic system for getting help
  3. A custom profile, points, and badges to measure progress

Coaches, parents, and teachers

Coaches, parents, and teachers have unprecedented visibility into what their students are learning and doing on the Khan Academy.

  1. Ability to see any student in detail
  2. A real-time class report for all students
  3. Better intelligence for doing targeted interventions 

Subjects

  • Math
  • Science and Economics
  • Computer Science
  • Humanities
  • Test Prep (SAT, GMAT, etc)

Over 4,000 videos!

Badges worth bragging about

We’re full of game mechanics. As soon as you log in, you’ll start earning badges and points for learning. The more you challenge yourself, the more bragging rights you’ll get.

SIGN UP TODAY

We are a donor-supported not-for-profit and would not be possible without the generous support of users everywhere. In particular, we’d like to thank The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Ann & John Doerr, the O’Sullivan Foundation, Reed Hastings, Google, and the Windsong Trust for their strong support of our mission.
