As you might know, TenMarks is one of my favorite online education startups at the moment and I am very much looking forward to my upcoming talk and EDUKWEST interview with Rohit Agarwal, one of the co-founders of TenMarks coming Monday.
Today though I stumbled over a little tweet of TenMarks about their YouTube channel and I think this one can compete with the famous Khan Academy.
As by today TenMarks offer nearly 1.300 videos on their channel, every video between 5 to 10 minutes long. That equals between 100 to 200 hours of math lessons and all for free. Truly amazing!
I watched a couple of them today and besides noticing that I really need to work on my math skills again, I find them easy to understand and clearly structured. So that is really a ton of valuable content TenMarks is offering for free which is of course a great marketing strategy for selling the core product.
The only problem with the YouTube channel is that the videos are not sorted in playlists and hence you have to search by hand for the topic you want to revise. On the other hand, this could be part of the plan getting students to sign up for the service where the videos will be part of the personalized curriculum.
