One-person academy tops YouTube's educational chart

Jeff Young sez, "Khan Academy is a one-man university on YouTube. Lectures are 10 minutes each. Self-paced assessments. Everything is free. Should traditional higher ed be worried or excited?

It's an outsider operation that raised $150,000+ in donations from tech entpreneurs and small PayPal contribs. And it's the most popular education video site on YouTube — more popular than MIT's OpenCourseWare.

The founder has big plans to try to turn it into a recognized charter school for K-12 and to help challenge model of college instruction."
