While the team here at Brightcookie are not the educators, we’re always keen to find new and useful resources for the education sector. Especially if it’s interesting stuff. And it’s a bit hard to not to become intrigued with a tagline like ‘Learn almost anything for free’.
I sat down to some late afternoon coffee and tried out one of the brain teasers on offer (free and no login required) – the Alien Abduction Brain Teaser: saving Earth from becoming a mushroom farm.
Fifteen minutes later, my brain was quite well exercised, I had been entertained and my coffee had grown cold.
However, it appears that the vast majority of the content is up for grabs, whether you are logged in, logged out, a visiting alien, or otherwise. With over 2,400 videos, that’s a lot of content to share.
“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. The Khan Academy’s materials and resources are available to you completely free of charge. “
It would be great to hear from some of the educators out there. How does the content look to you? What do you think of the concept? Are there are other resources you can recommend?
Or are you too busy watching alien abduction brain teasers to stop and answer our questions?
