Khan Academy
Khan Academy is a great supplement for things you already have learned, or as a mid-level course (versus a deep dive or high school/university level course). It is great for a paced learning environment if you want to casually refresh yourself on a subject or learn something new. I don't think this should be a replacement for structured learning, or if you struggle in self-paced learning environments. There have been times I would like to have been able to ask a professional (like an instructor) when struggling with a subtopic, which is possible in a classroom setting.

Quizlet
Quizlet works extremely well for students of all ages to study not only vocabulary but all types of academics. I have used it not only as a teacher to provide for my students, but I use Quizlet myself when studying or learning something new. The ease of access with it being online, at your phone, or wherever you go highly surpasses traditional flashcards.

Cons
Khan Academy
  • On my iPad, to change the language of Khan, I need to change the language of my iPad in the settings
  • It can be a bit messy and the category are a bit too generic, not enough per level category
  • Sometimes the quizz are too simple, it would be nice to have an extra difficult one as a bonus

Support Rating
Khan Academy
I've only had to seek support one time. There was a glitch in one of my lessons and I submitted an email. The glitch was fixed by support within a few days, but I would've liked for it to be faster. However, I don't have a big complaint there because it is a free service.

Alternatives Considered
Khan Academy
I personally found Khan Academy much better suited for adult learning of difficult or larger topics. Not so much for smaller changes that can be communicated via email. But it was more engaging and I found the information easier to digest. Change management can be tough but with the right tools it can be a breeze.

Allows using audio (sounds) that can be very beneficial, particularly for students who have impaired visual comprehension.

Return on Investment
Khan Academy
  • We used the free version and it proved to be a boon
  • Our interns learned about the data structures and algorithmic concepts.
  • We also use math-heavy calculations to derive things like statistics in our machine learning models. So Khan Academy helped us get on track for the statistics courses.
