Last two days when reading Sin Chew Daily, got to know this wonderful education site: Khan Academywww.khanacademy.org.

It’ s a free website with a library of over 4,000 videos on everything from arithmetic to physics, finance, and history and hundreds of skills to practice. Their mission is “to help you learn what you want, when you want, at your own pace“.

It all started when the founder Salman Khan wanted to help teaching his cousins in their studies. And initially he just wanted to use Yahoo’s Doodle Notepad as  the tool to teach them mathematics. Later, more and more relatives and friends looked for him for tuition. Then, he decided to capture some of his teaching in video and uploaded to YouTube.

I did a quick browse through the site and watch a few videos, it’s wonderful ! A free and good resource for homeschooling also.

Below are the subjects they cover.

And another good news is, in Malaysia, there is this website called EduNation www.edunation.my. They are Khan Academy’s Bahasa Malaysia advocate in Malaysia. For the past year they have been hard at work in putting the Malaysian school syllabus (currently Form 4 and Form 5 only) online by mapping the Khan Academy videos and creating their own videos.

Ya. We are blessed. A very big Thank You to their hard work.
