I like Khan Academy. I blogged about it last year, but it deserves a second shot. This guy is revolutionary. Teachers have been catching flak for years and some of it is downright evil. Often the critics had trouble in school themselves and are insecure about their own inability and expect a wand to be waved and a shaft of light to illuminate the answer. Kahn may be the shaft of light that is needed. Watch this video, then go to http://www.khanacademy.org/ and TRY a short class. Most are short and modular, but they seem to work. Bill Gates (a college dropout) moderates the Q&A session and seems to like it. M’gosh, he’s moderating it! – carlos
