“Very helpful”

I've been using Khan academy since grade 9 and it has always been easier to understand and more helpful than any of my teachers where. I really appreciate its free and if I had the money to donate or subscribe I would. All you need is your personal initiative to do well and some focus. These videos helped a lot!

“This place sucks”

My dad made me do Khan Academy because i was 4 parallel universes ahead of everybody and i wasn't doing enough work for online school. I signed up for GRADE SIX math and the first question they ask me is duh, what's 5+3. Another thing is you cannot restart quizzes. I accidentally pressed the wrong button and checked because that's what i always do and i had to do the rest of the quiz! Without all these fixes i cannot say Khan Academy is a good learning website for any reason at all.

Khan Academy could be a very helpful website if we could tweak a few things. First, once a person mastered a skill it should STAY mastered. I would suggest teaching the subject before you try to do it and take kids averages down. And DUMP AND DITCH Sal! He has a lazy way of talking that is hard for kids to pay attention too him and his handwriting could use improvement. This was NOT intended to be mean review but SERIOUSLY MAN no one wants to listen to you talk for 10 hours!

It makes you redo everything you already did if you get just a bit wrong. I don't like this website.

Don't do khan academy because you have to pay when you want to sign up. But it is free to schools and that's the only thing that's good. And if you want to get untill 100% you have to do itagain. And if you get questions wrong, then you have to do it over again that stresses me out.

Its a very good site. I can believe you said its bad just because its boring! Its still educational! And also, you clearly just don't like learning. If you don't understand something, watch a video! You don't need to always get 100%, and in your stats, your first score will be your forever score on it. And why did you say Khan Academy costs money? Please don't listen to that scammer, it doesn't cost money! In fact, Sal Khan, the creator of Khan Academy, is literally famous for creating a FREE online school.

Tip for consumers:
watch videos if you don't understand how to do something. And people, stop giving websites bad ratings due to ONE problem.

I use their courses for every thing I wish to learn, every time before I start learning a new concept either in math or on the web, I check a course here. It helps you guide your mind on the right track. Of course, it cannot replace a university all by its own and for that you need to actually attend courses and be supervised by a teacher/lecturer. But for me, starting something new is the hardest part and Khan academy help me in that regard.

I have used Khan for science courses including biology, chemistry, and anatomy and physiology on the university level and am very satisfied with the layout and length of the videos and problems. My kids use it as their primary source of math education as homeschoolers. Sequential learning experiences for FREE to anyone are provided for learning of many subjects. Khan Academy focuses on understanding requiring few problems, but mastery which I prefer over multiple problems of "busy work." There is also an option to "test out" of material already mastered. We find the site exceedingly helpful.

Khan academy is the best learning website I've ever seen. I've been using it since 4th grade and it's lessons really help. Now I use it as a supplement to the zoom classes/edgenuity (Tip, NEVER use edgenuity) hybrid I do now. Sal Khan explains concepts in a clear way, and the questions are relevant to the videos. Their JavaScript lessons introduced me into computer science, and their World History lessons helped me win the geography bee at my school last year. The badges you get from lessons give students a sense of progress and something to work for. Khan academy works great for online distance learning, a supplement to regular lessons, and works well if you want to learn something. Plus it's 100% free.

Khan Academy is great! You can learn so much. I learnt how to do trigonometry, then trigonometry with radians, how to solve some one-dimensional motion physics word problems, cryptography, and yet I'm still learning! It's a great way to study for tests and just having fun while learning!

Khan Academy is a authoritative, dependable and advantageous source of intellectual admonishment. While Khan is manufactured particularly for children in primary school through preparatory school, anybody with an university to implement may remunerate superlatively from it, offering scholars an considerable amount of knowledge.

Khan Academy is primarily directed for students in the American educational regulatory regime. Many of its courses subscribe to the statutory curriculum for distinctive proficiency thresholds.

Khan Academy provides science and engineering, computing, arts and humanities, standardized tests, college rehearsals, career prep, and English language arts in addition to math, economics, and finance. The significant composition of these disciplines have their own courses. You may, for example, matriculate in Precalculus, US history, and an LSAT prep course. There are no limitations on the frequency of modules you can take.

AP classes are yet another instance. AP, or Advanced Placement, is a program in the United States in which students can take courses in high school that recompense toward their college degree if they meet the criteria. In other words, students can take a university course without paying for it, and if they pass a standardized exam at the end, they will receive tuition reimbursement. Khan Academy's AP courses educate students in a specific material, but students must take the authorized examination wherever it is administered; they cannot take the test or obtain ultimate completion through Khan. Meanwhile, Coursera allows you to take inexpensive college courses from Yale and other prestigious academic institutions.

Products used:
Khan Academy is based on learning materials, succinct readings, interactive quizzes (typically multiple choice), and consultation forums. When you register in a course, you have accessibility to all of the video lectures and other resources within this course, which are presented in a maturational chronology. A course is often partitioned into modules, which constituted lessons, and inside the lessons are videos, readings, and quizzes.

I think Khan Academy should be banned from school and we should only use it if we want to. I have been forced to use Khan Academy for school and it is the worst math tool I have ever used. I would never in a million years recommend this to anyone. I have not learned one thing from this website. If you are reading this to see if you should use Khan please don't you will regret it the moment you start.

Not learning anything from this. The creator needs to learn how to talk. It's always "Sal meant this" or "Sal meant that" maybe instead of doing one problem for 10 minutes in a video, how about you just tell me the formula so I can do just not that one problem.

Not kidding with the title. It's so crazy how valuable this site has grown. I worked with their customer support team a few years back and the internal team is SUPER dedicated to the cause and vision of Khan down to the developers. Keep it up guys!

I am a 47 year old who decided to finally get my high school diploma after 30 years. I unintentionally ran across Khan Academy in an attempt to 'brush-up' on math.

I noticed that Sal Khan has this 'relaxed' way of speaking while explaining how to do math that causes you to also relax as you learn. That made learning very easy. It kept my interest and actually made it sort of fun.

After 30 years having no dealings with academic studies whatsoever, I studied with Khan Academy for a few months and received an overall 82% on my TASC Test (which I discovered has been a replacement for the traditional G. E. D. Of my generation). For math specifically, I received a 78%.

They have a fantastic thing going on there and I would recommend it to any and everyone! Highly effective.

Q&A (5)

Answer:

There is an old adage in education, that 'Spaced' learning is more effective than 'Clumped' learning. Waiting for the next Mastery challenge teaches patience, allows you to practice more skills in the dashboard, so the mastery challenges have more to do assessment on, and as you note, ensure that the concepts are transferring from short-term, to long term memory in your brain.
