Sal Khan’s History of (the structure of) Education
Rolin Moe, All MOOCs, All The Time
In a video interview with Forbes magazine, Sal Khan worked through a history of education, starting with an industrial view of the classroom experience (which Khan calls the Prussian model) and ending with Internet-based personalized learning such as his Khan Academy.
