Teaching in Video Blips

Claire Mathieu has been blogging about intro math and CS videos from Khan Academy and from others:

I’ve heard about this Khan Academy, and it seems like more and more course material is appearing as tiny web videos.

Also I recently found out that there is a free, online version of the Stanford Intro AI Class taught by Peter Norvig and Sebastian Thrun, for which 56,000 students signed up. I think I accidentally did their homework.

  2. The Stanford Machine Learning course is excellent, as are the Khan inspired offerings. This is the best thing to happen to education that I can recall in my lifetime.
