In this TED Talks video: Salman Khan talks about how and why he created the remarkable Khan Academy, a carefully structured series of educational videos offering complete curricula in math and, now, other subjects. He shows the power of interactive exercises, and calls for teachers to consider flipping the traditional classroom script — give students video lectures to watch at home, and do “homework” in the classroom with the teacher available to help.


The Khan Academy is most known for its collection of videos, so before I go any further, let me show you a little bit of a montage.

Notice, this is an aldehyde, and it’s an alcohol. Start differentiating into effector and memory cells. A galaxy. Hey, there’s another galaxy. Oh look, there’s another galaxy. And for dollars, is their 30 million, plus the 20 million dollars from the American manufacturer. If this does not blow your mind, then you have no emotion.
