Business Videos- Part Two
If you took the time to look through YouTube’s business education channel from the Part One companion post, then you might already expect that this second segment on educational business videos is a profile of the KhanAcademy. The KhanAcademy videos can all be found on YouTube, but seeing the sheer volume and breadth from the KhanAcademy mother ship is impressive. It’s even more impressive considering its founder Salman ‘Sal’ Khan, (who has three degrees from MIT and an MBA from Harvard) made the vast majority of them as he discusses in the FAQ.
A 501c3 non-profit, the KhanAcademy is making the world a smarter and better place by spreading knowledge via freely available 10-20 minute short tutorial videos on a wide array of academic topics, including a significant concentration on (unsurprisingly) business finance. Want lectures on topics concerning the 2009 financial crisis, or need a well-rounded view on the American-Chinese dept loop, or can’t remember how to derive market capitalization? Sal’s videos provide those answers, albeit you might have to stare at his notes carefully because his handwriting is sometimes a bit messy. Great knowledge doesn’t have to come in a shiny package though, so that’s hardly a reason to avoid brushing up on some business basics. We at bizologie say kudos to Khan!
