During my morning workout I enjoyed another great Stanford University eCorner podcast featuring Sal Khan of the Khanacademy.org. I’ve been following what this organization is doing for some time, and I really enjoyed catching up on how it has grown and what they are now focusing on (as well as hearing more details of the story of how they came in to being).
My big lessons:
- Think twice about recommendations from others that first seem crazy (ie putting tutorial videos on YouTube)
- Think huge about the potential impact of what you are doing
- Reconsider what and how it means to learn (experiential, at varying rates).
Let me know what strikes you about the possibilities Khan Academy brings, both in education and more generally in entrepreneurship.
