The NCLOR’s Khan Academy Resource Series was updated with over 2,500 new video tutorial resources, with a total resource count to over 4,500. This open educational resource series has now been promoted to a collection. All of the videos available from Khan Academy are now available within the NCLOR. Many of the videos have been tagged to a NCCCS combined course library course number. The disciplines covered in this collection include: Economics and Finance, Humanities, Math, and Science. Each discipline can be sorted by subject, topic or sub-topic.
The Khan Academy is the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation award winning not-for-profit organization with the goal of changing education for the better. Each video in this series is a digestible chunk of information, approximately 10 minutes long, closed captioned, and especially purposed for viewing on the computer.
IMPORTANT NOTE: As a result of a site redesign at Khan Academy, new resource urls were created. This means the old Khan Academy resources have been archived in the system and will soon be deleted. Please update any of your Khan Academy links with these new versions.
