Love or hate, you know about Khan Academy. It’s a great way for students of nearly any age to brush up on important lessons needed in the classroom. But what about online learning for grownups? There are plenty of ways to learn online but nothing that comes close to Khan Academy’s size.
Academy Bridge hopes to become the next big source of online learning for adults (“big kids” as they put it to me). The site currently features nearly 5,000 videos designed to help undergraduate and graduate students in business programs all for free. If you’re in an MBA program or looking to bone up on key business lessons, this is worth checking out.
How It’s Different
So what’s the difference between Khan, Coursera, Udacity, StraighterLine and now Academy Bridge? Aside from the direct focus on business topics, Academy Bridge has a sort of ‘boot camp’ called 24-Hour Business School. You have to pass it in order to move onto the real lessons. Like an entrance exam that’s always ready and waiting.
The next step is to start enrolling in courses. There’s plenty to choose from and even videos available in Chinese. There are interactive components as well thanks to feedback, ratings, comments, and social media integration.
So if you’re in the market for enhancing your business knowledge, learning about more advanced economics topics, or just love trying out brand new products, it’s worth checking out.
