After looking at Khanacademy.org and following it for few months now
with both on development and content front i am convinced that if
education , especially Foss education has to be done it can be done
i have been trolling on sites sites like
Youtube for quite a long now , and they
have come up in a very good way content wise. The two things which Khan
has done which is a good thing is
1) Monitoring students learning experience in the forms of coach
2) Assessing the students in the forms of tests
3) Knowledge maps yes some of it i have seen some time back on
but it did serve the pupose
of self paced learning and assessment.
to know about more features you can check out
Yes of course we cannot compare to the Sal
passion and delivery mode which i think is unique of every teacher in
So why this post , yes i have started thinking on the lines of taking
khanacademy.org code and making fossacademy.org with Foss content.
the content is going to come from the following sources
would like to add to the list more content sites as and when i start
for the folks who are interested in contributing and asking more
questions i will be available on irc.freenode.net #fossacademy .
