Khan Academy is a nonprofit with the mission of providing a free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere. College students who have gaps in knowledge can struggle in math, especially within courses that build on previous learning and on placement exams . These students need relevant, high-quality resources that can be accessible at any time.
What we offer to students is a free, online tool, which houses thousands of instructional math videos, exercises, and a personalized learning platform in which students can learn at their own pace through an entire math subject.
Students can access math content either through a personalized mission or our library.
A mission is a personalized math experience through a specific math subject.
Students can use missions to:
- learn at their own pace,
- master skills that are challenging and appropriate for their level, and
- use hints and videos immediately when they are stuck.
For college students in developmental math, our most popular mission is Algebra Basics, which is ideal for anyone looking to prepare for a college placement exam or is in developmental math.
Our library contains thousands of videos and exercises - think of it as a free tutor available to students 24/7!
Students can access this library by simply typing the skill or topic in the search bar. This is typically very useful for students who are either looking for one specific skill,
We believe that coaches are critical to student success.
A coach can be a teacher, a parent, a mentor, or even a peer. No matter who they are, coaches are there to support their students, celebrate their victories, and help them find lessons in defeat.
Our goal is to empower students to take ownership of their own learning and to empower coaches to spend more time doing what they do best: personally interacting with every student, providing guidance and encouragement, and engaging students in collaborative activities.
Both students and coaches have access to dashboards, where they can view learning progress on Khan Academy. Students can track their own progress, and coaches can see how their students are doing.
Every Khan Academy account is both a “learner” account and a "coach" account, so all the features available to learners are also available to you as a coach. The best way to familiarize yourself with our learner features is to experience them for yourself, so feel free to open the "Subjects" menu and start exploring!
