How I Use It
Before a test, I offered these videos as resources for students to use if they needed a bit of clarification on a concept. They appreciated the extra help, but occasionally, the person in the video used different terminology than I used in class, so that was confusing for the students. This should be used in addition to lecture, etc.
My Take
Khan Academy is a great resource for students who need additional examples or a little clarification on a concept. However, the explanations are too short to be a comprehension discussion of the concept. These videos would be a good supplemental resource, but they shouldn't be the sole method of explaining a concept.
