I want to create my own online academy. Why? Because I'm so much inspired by this story! Khanacademy.org is another institution aimed at utilizing the open source education method of teaching. The Khan Academy was formed by an MIT student who desired to teach his brother some of the material he was learning in class and he provided the material in emails. It's so true! My brother asked me for 5th grade math homework help, so I also helped him online. Over time other people voiced a desire to receive this material and so Kahn decided to offer the teaching via video and from this was born the khanacademy.org program.
Kaha Academy offers learning in an open source education format on many different subjects and level of learning. These programs include elementary education and include higher education all the way to doctoral material. The material is provided in a manner that is easy to understand and can be adapted to use in a home school environment.
