General
How I Use It
I would use this product to help students who do not fully grasp a topic during class or student who want to make sure they understand a topic fully. The students could be assigned the topic that was discussed in class through Khan academy. On the website they would see it get explained again in case it helps to hear it in different terms and then they would go along with the interactive problems given to them throughout.
My Take
I believe this is a great teaching tool. I can only explain it as a teacher being able to assist multiple students on a personal level at once. Students may go at their own pace and go through problems until they are completely confident in their understanding of the topic. It is especially great for shy students who may not feel comfortable going up to a teacher and asking them to re-explain a topic to them. It seems to be a great way to personalize the learning experience for every student. It's a great combination of teaching and doing so every student can find a way to understand the material.
