You are probably familiar with Khan Academy, the site where you can get math lessons on demand from MIT graduate Salmon Khan. In fact, Khan Academy has become so popular that it’s captured the attention of people like Bill Gates, and opened the door for MIT to invite Mr. Khan himself to offer the commencement speech at MIT’s 2012 graduation ceremony.
But Salmon Khan is not, by trade, a teacher. Now I’m not taking anything away from his success, and the value his videos have provided to millions of math students (including myself). I say that because what if there was a way for teachers to create their own lesson videos quickly and easily, and upload them to a site where their students can then access them over and over again?
Enter Educreations, a start up that allows anyone to create, narrate, and record lessons (whiteboard style) and publish the tutorials on the web, all from your iPad. This is a pretty amazing looking start up, and just closed a $2.2. million round of funding from investors. I’m guessing that investors see the writing on the digital walls!
