Khanacademy.org is the benchmark as far as online educational methods go. Formed by Salman Khan, an MIT engineer, Khan Academy has a very unique attempt at education. Majority of the videos on this site cater to school-going students. But there are interesting courses in History which are graduate level. The teaching method is very traditional and old-school where Sal Khan (as he is popularly known) explains various concepts and theorems on a blackboard with multi-coloured digital pens, which is very different from a long shot of the professor tutoring you as will be seen in the research stated below. Another wonderful aspect of Khan Academy is the gamification philosophy in the site. Every video you view gives you some points and as your point increases you keep unlocking new badges which are kind of cool. For students taking Math lessons, there is a Practice module, where you can take quizzes, answer questions based on topics, etc. You get a sort of report card which shows your progress and grasp of a particular topic. It is a wonderful tool for students to improve their math proficiency.
