If you haven’t heard of Khan Academy already we encourage you to try this free tool for both students and teachers. You need to know that the app is an extension of the Khan Academy website which is a non-profit, open source educational website with the aim of ‘changing education for the better by providing a free world-class education for anyone anywhere’. Using the app you can watch more than 4,300 video lessons on topics including math, science, economics, and humanities either by streaming them from the site or downloading them for later viewing or when you don’t have an Internet connection. The app receives a 5 star EAS Certification and the EAS Recommended status.
From the Developer
Khan Academy allows you to learn almost anything for free.
Our iPad app is the best way to view Khan Academy’s complete library of over 3,200 videos.
We cover a massive number of topics, including K-12 math, science topics such as biology, chemistry, and physics, and even the humanities with playlists on finance and history.
Spend an afternoon brushing up on statistics. Discover how the Krebs cycle works. Learn about the fundamentals of computer science. Prepare for that upcoming SAT. Or, if you’re feeling particularly adventurous, learn how fire stick farming changed the landscape of Australia.
Included in our iPad app:
- Downloadable videos: take individual videos or entire playlists to watch offline at your own pace
- Subtitles: follow along, skip ahead, or go back by navigating through subtitles
- Track your progress: Log in with your Khan Academy user account to get credit for watching videos, and see your achievements
- Exercises coming soon!
It doesn't matter if you are a student, teacher, home-schooler, principal, adult returning to the classroom after 20 years, or a friendly alien just trying to get a leg up in earthly biology; Khan Academy's materials and resources are available to you completely free of charge.
