Edwatch: Khan Academy

Organization Name: Khan Academy
Company Line: Khan Academy is an organization on a mission. We're a not-for-profit with the goal of changing education for the better by providing a free world-class education for anyone anywhere. All of the site's resources are available to anyone. 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.
Bottom Line: Khan Academy produces low-quality videos with the absence of any pedagogical intentionality. It is one man's vision of what curricula should look like. With serious funding from the Billionaire Boys, many students will be driven to his website. Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation provides funding to provide general operating support, expanding Khan Academy's leadership and staff capacity to map Khan Academy content to the Common Core high school standards, improve assessments, and enhance the user interface, to develop the remaining K-12 math exercises to ensure full coverage of the Common Core math standards and form a small team to implement a blended learning model, and to support capacity building efforts,
