Khan Academy App for supplemental or Flipped Classroom

KHAN Academy App offers thousand of videos with the goal of providing complete mastery, filling in any gaps in knowledge.  There are categories of instructional videos for Math, Science, Economics, Humanities. Students can pause and repeat as often as needed. Plus the absence of a face is actually helpful to autistic students, since it avoids sensory overload that can interfere with their learning.   Khan videos can be used as a supplemental resource or for flipping the classroom. Has anyone used them in their classes?


  1. Khan is fine, but I much prefer the videos from Patrick JMT. I recommend both to my classes, but they are definitely more to be used as a resource to reinforce the concepts taught in the classroom, rather than to teach the concept. I do not think that those apps can be used in the classroom. They explain, not illustrate, and that is what I am looking for.
