No more student debt? - The Khan Academy
What started out as one guy making a few algebra videos for his cousins has grown to over 2,100 videos and 100 self-paced exercises and assessments covering everything from arithmetic to physics, finance, and history.
I was introduced to this website yesterday by a fellow Toastmaster and am just fascinated by it. The possibilties are endless. The best thing is, it's all free.
Student debt a thing of the past?.

I use it to actually teach me the stuff that my government online ed just gives me credit for. (I technically go to an online magnet school for my state.) It's wonderful. I agree, the possibilities are endless; but currently he only has a full curriculum up for math (Arithmetic and Developmental math through Calculus and Linear Algebra).
If I read his interviews right, he plans to expand that to a full curriculum. I'm not sure at which point he intends to get accredited, but I'm guessing that's somewhere down the line.
For now, it's a wonderful tool in the context of another way to get credit! Schools in California are using it for their middle school math classes--can't wait to see how that turns out!
