I have found it interesting that some of my parents and students love to supplement my courses with Khan Academy clips and exercises and others simply, hate it. One student told me, "That guy's voice puts me to sleep - it does not help me at all," while others report that it is very helpful. Many parents indicate that when helping their kids with problems at home, they use Khan Academy as a refresher so that they are able to give better explanations to their students working on specific types of problems. Today I read this article below and wondered about the new computer science component being added and how helpful it might be.
