Khan Academy Founder Proposes a New Type of College

Khan Academy Founder Proposes a New Type of College | Educational Technology in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Salman Khan’s dream college looks very different from the typical four-year institution.

The founder of Khan Academy, a popular site that offers free online video lectures about a variety of subjects, lays out his thoughts on the future of education in his book, The One World School House: Education Reimagined, released last month. Though most of the work describes Mr. Khan’s experiences with Khan Academy and his suggestions for changing elementary- and secondary-school systems, he does devote a few chapters to higher education.

Khan Academy, Coursera Partner with Crowdsource Platform Amara

Khan Academy, Coursera Partner with Crowdsource Platform Amara | Educational Technology in Higher Education | Scoop.it

In an effort to allow more students the opportunity to be able to access and understand the courses available through Coursera and the Khan Academy, these two organizations are now partnering with Amara, which is a crowd source subtitling platform which works with volunteers from all over the world who translate content from one language to another. While universities are offering their courses to platforms such as Coursera, these are often in English and this means that only a limited number of students can benefit from them; with the assistance of translators, however, there is no telling how many will be able to take advantage of these online offerings.

'Mystery Teacher Theater 2000' Contest Calls for Critiques of Khan Academy Videos

'Mystery Teacher Theater 2000' Contest Calls for Critiques of Khan Academy Videos | Educational Technology in Higher Education | Scoop.it

There's no denying Khan Academy has become an education juggernaut, reaching more than six million users every month. Founder Sal Khan recently pointed out that that's 10 times the number of all Harvard graduates since 1636. But while its "flipped classroom" approach has been touted in some circles as the future of learning, a growing number of educators are making the point that Khan's videos aren't a silver bullet.

Audrey Watters: Education Technology as Content Delivery

Audrey Watters: Education Technology as Content Delivery | Educational Technology in Higher Education | Scoop.it

  Khan Academy proudly states on its website “168,382,612 lessons delivered,” something that always reminds me of the slogan that used to accompany McDonalds’ golden arches: “over 200 billion served.” (I hope) We know better than to equate the billions of Big Macs sold with billions of healthy bodies or a well-fed world. Yet we still often equate “lessons delivered” with “learning,” as though their delivery necessarily offers a substantive intellectual nutrition

Khan Academy has 150 million YouTube views, 320,000 subscribers, and major support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation—but that doesn’t mean the free online library of educational videos is perfect. It doesn’t even mean the site is especially effective, say two math professors at Grand Valley State University.

If you’ve followed ed tech chatter these past few weeks, then you know that the buzz around Khan Academy, the popular online repository of educational videos voiced by the charismatic Sal Khan, has taken a rather negative tone ever since two teachers at Grand Valley State University created "Mystery Teacher Theater 2000”—in the style of Mystery Science Theater 3000—a scathing response to a Khan video lesson about negative numbers.
