New Learning Dashboard launched at the Khan Academy

If you think the Khan Academy (khanacademy.org) is just a repository of educational videos, think again.  Khan Academy is quickly becoming a complete educational institute: one that would evaluate your present skills, recommend areas you should be working on and videos you should watch, and then, after you watch the recommended videos, present you with exercises to test your newly acquired knowledge. It is self-paced learning at its best.  Today’s special from the Khan Academy is the new learning dashboard.  After your skills are evaluated through a set of questions at the Khan Academy web site, you are presented with a complete ‘knowledge-map’ with squares representing knowledge-areas—blue ones indicating your familiarity with the subject matter and grey ones showing content you should learn.  This new learning dashboard, along with the evaluation test, is definitely a testimony of excellent programming skills of web-developers employed at the Khan Academy.
