Huffington Post - 14 days
What study strategies did you use to manage such a demanding workload across many disciplines at MIT? originally appeared on Quora - the place to gain and share knowledge, empowering people to learn from others and better understand the world. Answer by Salman-Khan, founder of Khan Academy, on Quora: My best tip is to try to learn the material well before you have to know it in class. Classes move at a fixed paced. This tends to be ok most places since the pace is reasonable. MIT, on the other hand, intentionally keeps the pace much faster as a kind of challenge. That is why is not unusual to see 1600 SATs or Valedectorians fail classes there. I was able to get my first exposure to rigorous classes like multivariable calculus, differential equations, partial differential equations, linear algebra and programming as part of a joint program between my high school and the University of New Orleans.

Answer by Salman-Khan, founder of Khan Academy, on Quora: Here is where I see education moving over the next ten years: Mastery Learning First, mastery-learning will become much more mainstream.

Instead, students got pushed ahead even when gaps were identified in their learning ("Got a "C" on that basic exponents exam? Too bad. We now have to learn negative exponents.") That process caused students to accumulate gaps until it was debilitating at an upper level class. Now we have the technol ...
