Mar'2011 TED talk.

  • My cousins told me they preferred me on YouTube to me in-person.

  • If Isaac Newton had done YouTube videos on calculus, I wouldn't have to.

  • Teachers are having students "learn" by watching the videos at home, then they do their homework during classtime, so they can work together and with the teacher!

  • We encourage experimentation and expect Personal Mastery. School is the opposite.

Ooh, I like the prerequisite-chain in the Exercise Dashboard http://www.khanacademy.org/exercisedashboard
