Review: Khan Academy App

Khan Academy started with providing math learning and now has expanded to science, computer programming, history, art history, economics, and probably more to come. When I heard about this app, I knew that some of the teachers already use Khan Academy in their classes, so I thought perhaps this app could be helpful. On the iPad you have access to all the content and videos lessons that you can stream from the site. It has a nice clean user interface, content is well organized and easily accessible (providing you have good wireless). This makes working on questions, reviewing material, in my opinion, much easier and smoother.
