Arts & Humanity

Thanks for using Khan Academy! We’re excited to hear your feedback. This community is a place for THE MOST AMAZING LEARNERS in the world to hang out, meet each other and talk about the Khan Academy experience. We want all of you to experience awesomeness during your stay here, so please remember a few things while posting:

  • No bad language and no rude gestures, seriously.
  • Be awesome to each other.
  • Don’t post anything that isn’t yours to post.
  • Don’t let your evil self from a parallel universe post as you.
  • Check to see if someone has already posted an idea that is similar to yours. Add a comment to their idea rather than creating your own.
  • Don’t spam.
  • Keep each post to one specific new idea. Don’t try and talk about 2 or more ideas in one post.
  • When you want to make the platform better, be specific. We need to know where the problem happened, what you expected to happen and what went wrong. For more information on how to best post feedback, read this article.

Any posts found to be in violation of any of the above will be taken down, probably by grumpy math wizards.

General Arts & Humanity discussions

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Maybe you should include drama.

    You should include drama in arts and humanities.

    • Add A Points Donater

      I am making a program, and I think that it would be cool if I could pay them with Energy Points. Is there a way to make a machine that you can give Energy Points out to people who help you?

      • I think that there is something wrong with my account.

        I was watching a video on music and when I finished watching it, it said that it was 0% watched.

        • Add more classical masterpieces to the music section.

          There are currently very few pieces of classical music on Khan Academy. More should be added. Some ideas might be Bach's "Well Tempered Clavier" or some of Chopin's polonaises or nocturnes.

          • "Art History" is misleading

            This section should either include Asian Art or should be retitled to represent what it is - History of *Western* Art.

            • Add A Section About World War 2

              I think we should a section about world war 2 just like the section about world war 1

              • Add More History

                I think that more history would be cool.

                • Offer More "Crash Courses"

                  Since it looks like the Crash Courses have been going on so well on Youtube. Why not bring as many of them as can be had to Khan academy. It will improve the Humanities page (which can always use more) and the videos are already completely. Not to mention they are highly engaging and have the best production value of anything else I have seen on this website.

                  • art dashboard scratchpad

                    There should be exercises where you follow the guidelines and make your own painting. Then you can make a spin-off and earn points.

                    • Benefits of music/music theory

                      I think that including a section on music, specifically theory, would greatly help many people, especially children, who use this site. Learning and studying music helps with learning overall and also helps with spacial-temporal recognition and awareness. Anyone else have any thoughts on this?

                      • Art Lessons?

                        Art lessons on khan academy would be extremely useful for those who wish to learn how to compose beautiful works of art, but I don't know, is it too different from the thing you usually do to try and add this to khan academy? :D
