Ethos Community

I know it's not new, but I thought it was worth having a look at the Khan Academy (a not-for-profit organisation started by Salman Khan) to see how it's going. There are now over 2,500 videos on a range of subjects including "math, science, computer programming, history, art history, economics" (source).

The site advises that Khan Academy "offers practice exercises, instructional videos, and a personalized learning dashboard" (source). The aim is to "empower learners to study at their own pace", with "adaptive technology that identifies strengths and learning gaps". Khan Academy has also partnered with institutions like NASA, The Museum of Modern Art, The California Academy of Sciences, and MIT to offer specialized content.

If you haven't visited the site in a while, it's definitely worth a look. It is way more polished than a few years back (as you'd hope), as well as being easy to navigate and find things.
