Khan Academy

Just read this Slashdot article about how Bill Gates has been signing the praises of the Khan Academy free learning website to the point of enrolling his own kids. Here is the description from the website itself:
The Khan Academy is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) with the mission of providing a world-class education to anyone, anywhere. Despite being the work of one man, Salman Khan, this 1600+ video library is the most-used educational video resource as measured by YouTube video views per day and unique users per month. We are complementing this ever-growing library with user-paced exercises--developed as an open source project--allowing the Khan Academy to become the free classroom for the World.
The overview of the library in the video below is really impressive. You can even sign in with your google account to participate.
