Via Ben Casnocha, a piece of wisdom from Sal Kahn.
It makes more sense to have students watch lectures at home and do homework at school as opposed to vice versa.
Kahn is right. In fact, this is basically how it works in many college classes. Watching a lecture in a giant lecture hall is the same as watching one on a computer screen and recitation sessions or TA office hours provide opportunities to effectively “do homework at school.”
