Once you sign up for a free account, you have access to all videos and lessons.
Users can find lessons by topic or by subject.
Students can log into their account, click on their name at the top of the page, and then click on the ‘coaches’ tab to select their teacher. Once they select their coach, the coach can control what each student watches.
Students can have more than one coach.
For math and science videos, students can elect to see how a problem was solved step-by-step, either through text or video, by clicking ‘show the next step’ button.
Coaches have access to all of their students’ activities and achievements.
Coaches are able to access ‘class stats,’ which reveals how many students have viewed a video, as well as which students have viewed the video.
Khan Academy provides a ‘teacher toolkit’ that explains how to get started, how to implement Khan Academy into the classroom, and provides resources for students.
Teachers have personal dashboards and students can have a personal login.
The site provides three different types of organization: tutorials, playlists, or groups.
To create a tutorial, teachers use a built-in screen recording tool to make short videos or add PowerPoint and PDF files, choose what subject describes the tutorial, hit "create," and add closed-captioning if desired.
Sophia provides a video on how to create a quiz for a tutorial.
To create a playlist, teachers can create an ordered set of tutorials for students to follow. Students can use these for a structured course, or create their own playlist as a study guide. Click "create playlist," drag and drop videos in the desired order, and then add a name and description.
There are many playlists available pre-made for educators and students.
Creating a group allows teachers to create a private classroom or study group. Teachers and students (if the teacher allows for this ability) can upload content, communicate with other group members, and students have the ability to submit coursework and projects.
Users can make an unlimited number of tutorials, playlists, and groups. Everything created can be viewed and organized on the dashboard.
Sophia provides a five-question quiz, "What kind of learner are you?" to help each member determine if they’re a visual, verbal, auditory, interpersonal, or applied learner.
