    I love this man because of his informality(just one of the various traits).

    Still I laugh when I see the video of antiparallel structure of Dna.Where At the last 3 second he tries to utter molecularly.But he doesn't succeed.

    Very enthusiastic

    I am so glad that the Khan Academy includes Humanities in its subject offerings and I hope someday to be a contributor specific to Music Education in that area.
    As a music specialist/classroom teacher, one point made at 24:05–24:15 in your talk addresses the flaws in the issue of time constraints & educational expectations for general ed/classroom teachers. But what worse is taking that situation and then divide that time even farther down for the Art, Music, Phys. Ed. and Compurter teaching specialists who have 1/5 the amount of time to teach their subject to ALL of the students in their Elementary-Middle School buildings!
    – – – – – – – – – – – That needs to "marinate" for jut a minute. – – – – – – – – – – –
    – – – – – No, really, go back and read the second paragraph again. I'll wait – – – – – –
    "Music" is a complex, varied and multitudinous subject (it's actually a way of life, but I'll just address it as a "subject" for now) and in our current educational format – for public school, anyway, it's difficult to give music its just do when you only have 50 minutes, 1 time per week to engage ALL 352 of the children in your school. The Elementary level General Ed. teachers have their 30 students in their individual classrooms whom they see 5 days per week. The music teacher will see those same 30 students but only on 1 of those 5 days which then translates to only seeing those children for 8 or 9 times by the end of the quarter (God help you if you have a snow-day, holiday or a fire drill on the day you see this class!).
    I'm stating this to simply point up how amazing the "Flipped Class" format of education is the current key to remedy the issue of the inordinant amount of time afforded to the Humanities. Such areas of study are honestly, the subjects that should be the steering wheel used to turn our US society away from its current trajectory/cycle of violence and lack of civility. Without the advancement of communications technology through YouTube, Skype, audio/video conferencing, social media and the accessibility of the Internet itself, there would be only a bleak future ahead for PUBLIC school education!

    The gaps were always missing, education taught with gaps, no comprehensive processes, all this and more led to so many COLA PROBLEMS, WITH BEHAVIOR PROBLEMS IN EDUCATION.

    I’m 39 now and work as a software engineer. I now embrace education and try to learn as much as I can. I lament at how badly I treated my teachers when I was a young, dumb teenager. If only at that time, I had valued the treasures that they were giving me; treasures which allow you to live a stable, happy, successful life. As a teenager, I would have looked at this room negatively as a bunch of annoying nannys but now I look at them as heroes. Thank you to all teachers, for what you put up with every day, and I’m very sorry to the ones I was so rude to , several decades ago.

    I really appreciate Nadia for coming out of the bubble and asking a doubt with her cousin, that's where the thought of Khan Academy really started. Students should really ask doubts and expand the horizons of learning. love Sal

    I'm so thankful to have Sal in my life. I finished my calculus class and done with math. I don't have to take anymore math and I graduate next semester. It wouldn't have been possible without spending days watching Sal's videos because I was always weak in math. Thank you so much, my Bengali brother.

    Thank you for referring to Khan Academy as a tool. I am a math teacher, currently in a new school (for me) where the students are quite low. I came into the school half way through the year and saw that the students had not been taught any of their current level math. I had little time to prepare them for the "big test" all students have to take annually. I immediately signed up all my students on Khan Academy. I was shocked at the resistance I received from students, parents and the principal (I did not expect that.) It did not take long to observe that the complaint department was from the students who NEVER even attempted the assignments I gave them. …(and of course, they complained to their parents who then complained to me and the principal.) Here is the great news.I now have the data to prove that all the students who actively participated and DID the assignments I gave them on Khan Academy had great gains even though they only had 7 weeks to get ready for their test. I thank you and am currently in the process of changing the mind of the principal with my data.

    7 months into the project , almost running out of savings, May 2010 when "the whole idea" almost got killed, a generous lady named Ann Dor came to the rescue with a $10,000 and subsequently with a $100,000 donation. If it weren't for her timely intervention and contribution, the whole thing would've been dead and buried. We should all remember her name and thank her for what she did. I mean, I am just thinking with such astonishment that it was really this close (wonder how many more good projects never got a chance to take off because of money and other special interests) to the possibility of the thing getting perished for good. Thank God his tutorials were on youtube so that other people could actually "see" the value of the product.

    Time for him to Move on to health care. He did say he has some ideas. "World Class Healthcare"… What, Free ? Nah, not possible. No way, Jose. Show me the money.

    But… who knows, weird things has happened in the past, for the better.

    May be he can sit with Dr. Mohammad Yunus and work out a "Social Business" plan. His idea needs a "lift off" as well.

    It's an analog universe, one contact point, the Singularity. Without the concepts of quantifying qualities and "realizing" natural proportions in/of phenomena, one is not "thinking", only mimicking.

    Here's one way to "Save the World", Teaching and Learning.

    His videos quite literally dragged me out of a depression I was in cause I believed I was incapable of learning or doing anything good in my life. Just in the year 2018 alone I went from less than 5,000 activity points to over 900,000, all from watching and reading articles on Algebra 1, 2, Geometry, US History, World History, Chemistry and Biology. This site fitted perfectly with my ideal mode of learning, and continues to be the driving force of my education. Sal Khan, you quite literally saved my life. Thank you.
