For 3 years now I've been uploading my math lessons to my classroom website so that if students are absent they don't miss out on the lesson. Then this past year I heard a story about the Khan Academy and how schools in California are making his online community part of their daily math instruction. The story behind this new and innovative resource is that the founders niece needed some math tutoring so her uncle would use his pad and upload the sessions to YouTube. They received so many hits that Khan received national recognition and a grant from the Bill Gates foundation. He has expanded to add science lessons as well. I haven't spent an enormous amount of time exploring all that it has to offer, but it is definitely something that could be utilized so that students in more rural areas receive a quality math education.
