TED Launches New Education Platform with Customized Teaching Tools

From eSchool News

TED, a nonprofit organization devoted to spreading big ideas through a series of conferences and a free video platform, has continued its expansion into education by launching a brand-new TED-ED website with tools to help teachers use video in the classroom.  The new platform allows educators to customize videos with follow-up questions and assignments.  TED says – an initiative that could help power the “flipped learning” model.  This is the second phase of TED’s expansion into education, following the launch of a TED-ED YouTube channel last month with several educational videos.  With the new TED-ED platform, “you can use, tweak, or completely redo any lesson featured on TED-ED, or create lessons from scratch based on any video from YouTube,” the organization says.  In other words, the site allows users to take any useful educational video, not just TED’s, and easily create a customized lesson around the video.  Users can distribute lessons, publicly or privately, and track their impact on the world, a class, or an individual student, TED says.
