Abstract
This project deals with designing a Web application that delivers KHAN ACADEMY® instructional videos and attempts to give SHS students, access to educational resources that are relevant to the WASSCE syllabus. The ultimate objective of this project is to help students improve their math learning abilities by giving them reach to vast resources which can be accessed offline. The added value of this application is that it allows teachers to use this resource to assist their students by uploading their own content i.e. exercises, assignments and explanations on various math topics. This application should help curb the rate of failure in WASSCE Math exams and improve the results of many SHS students in Ghana.
