The Physics Teacher
written by James Gray and Christine Lindstrom
Khan Academy (KA) is one of the world's most popular open educational resources (OER), with more than 57 million registered users and 15 million monthly site visits as of May 2016.2 It is popular with students seeking additional resources for their math studies, and gaming features (in the form of points, badges, and missions) add to its appeal. As yet, there is little research-based advice on how such a system (of which KA is not the only one) can be effectively integrated into a course.

We have used KA with our students for three years. In this period, we have conducted and published both quantitative and qualitative analyses of our students' learning. In this paper, we draw on our successes and failures to make five practical recommendations for effective integration of KA in existing courses, but note that what we have learned could apply to any similar OER. We will not focus on the technical details of integrating KA; readers interested in this are referred to the KA website.
