How I Use It
I provided links to the Khan Academy videos on my class website. This allowed students that were absent the opportunity to keep up with the information that was covered in class. It was also an additional resource for struggling students that needed more support.
My Take
This is a great resource to help absent students or struggling learners. In addition, it is free! On the other hand, it does not really offer more than what a standard lecture would provide. These videos could benefit from some editing. The moments when the speaker changes his mind, erases, and starts over can be annoying. Some lessons come with practice questions. I think having practice problems for every lesson would improve this product.
