Overall Satisfaction with Khan Academy

Khan Academy is an excellent resource. We use it internally for quick training, answering questions, figuring out odd issues, or just learning something new when things are slow. The lessons are easy to follow and usually interactive, especially for things like SQL learning. Our favorite feature of the tool is its price: free!
  • The UI is great and easy to use.
  • There is a broad selection of courses, subjects, and instructors.
  • The classroom integration option is awesome.
  • While the UI is easy to use, it is quite simple, meaning it doesn't seem as refined as something like Lynda.
  • Since there is a big focus on K-12 learning, it is sometimes difficult to find relevant adult learning courses.
  • I would like at least one or two specialized courses in each subject. For example, in world history, it would be nice to see a specialized course in Europe.
  • Accessibility
  • Ease of use.
  • Price
  • Since this is a free platform, the ROI is limited only by the time put into learning a subject.
  • A downside to this course-style learning is the inability to have a specific question answered, or quickly learn a specific task in a software program. It is designed to build your knowledge of a topic one step at a time.
  • A positive to this style of learning is you gain much more knowledge of a topic vs. a single piece of information or a single skill.
The number one reason to choose Khan Academy over other options is price. If you are looking for a special skill or a quick answer YouTube is a great resource. Khan Academy is better suited for those who want to have a pseudo-classroom experience while still learning a subject or skill. I have used Lynda and Udemy; there is little difference between Khan Academy and those two options.

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.
