Khan Academy App for iPad Helps You Learn Just About Anything
If you like free online learning tools, you’ll enjoy Khan Academy’s new iPad app. Khan Academy is a popular educational service that aims to offer a free world-class education to anyone by way of over 3,000 video courses. These videos and lectures cover everything from biology, chemistry, physics, humanities, world history, finance, programming, computer science fundamentals, K-12 mathematics, and much more.
All Khan Academy videos are hosted on YouTube, so why have a dedicated app? The apps primary benefit is each video becomes downloadable, allowing for offline viewing. Considering how easy it is for online distractions to interfere with learning, that’s a significant plus. Other perks to using the app are subtitles, a progress log, and soon the app will include exercises too. Other than the ugly pea-green interface elements (please, just make them gray), the app is quite nice and well worth the free download.
