Online Education's Newest Billionaire Fan

In an article in Education Tech News, it was revealed that Bill Gates is a big fan of the Khan Academy. '"This guy (Sal Khan) is amazing" Gates Tweeted recently. "It is awesome how much he has done with very little in the way of resources."'

He now has his own You Tube channel with over 1,200 short video lessons for you and your students to review. They range from arithmetic to advanced calculus...and from economics to finance. He has several science videos and hopes soon to start on disciplines outside the realm of math and science.

Khan has been mentioned in this blog on a couple of occasions. I encourage you to check out his tutorials to see if any will work as links in your class. If you use math at all in your class, there will probably be something beneficial for you and your students. Enjoy!
