From the FAQ:

Where can my students set their gender? Some of your students may have already set their gender when they signed up for a Khan Academy account. If they haven't yet, or you want to make sure it's set, ask them to visit their settings page by clicking their name in the top right corner and clicking "Settings" in that menu. There, they can set their gender. If we find that you have students that have completed the course but have not specified their gender yet, we will notify you.

I predict a lot of "girls" are going to complete this course.

On top of that, it needs to be as easy as it is on Windows to get multiple monitors working, install new drivers, and apply patches. Granted, it's been 4 years since I've tried, but I couldn't get multiple monitors working in Kubuntu. The phrase "recompile the kernel" should never be seen by the user. I want to just check "I agree" and click "next".

The reason that every major university maintains a department of mathematics is that it's cheaper than institutionalizing all those people.
