They have lots of videos teaching math, science, economics, art, history...ect...
I love them and have a learned a lot from them.
Unfortunately, they have a video in their MCAT section on Dissociative Idnentity Disorder that gets a lot of the facts wrong concerning D.I.D.
First the speaker can't even say dissociative correctly, and keeps saying "disassociative".
Second, they say it's extremely rare. That it's based mainly in the U.S. They talk about malingering and mention the Hillside Strangeler.
It also talks about many theories that assert that DID is faked, mainly the iatrogenic and sociocogentive theories.
I'm so sad. I love khan academy and am sad that they've released this video.
I'm going to write an email asking them to correct their misinformation. I mean this is an educational website that's very popular and used worldwide....it needs to get its facts straight and at least pronounce the name correctly :S
So I'm going to write an email to Sal Khan the guy who started Khan academy. I'm hoping he'll make sure there's a new video.
I would love it if others joined in as well. His email is easy to find on the internet.
