Create Video Lesson Online with Ted Ed

TED, the conference dedicated to “Ideas Worth Spreading,”  has taken quite a few steps in past few months towards its  educational mission.

After launching a TED Ed video channel on YouTube,  it has expanded its TED Ed initiative with a new set of interactive features”Flip the Video“, which makes it easier for you to create video lessons for your community or audience at large.

TED calls this “flipping the video,” a clear reference to the idea of “flipping the classroom” popularized by Salman Khan’s Khan Academy and others. Basically it means making students responsible for lecture-like content outside of class via video, freeing up classroom time for discussion and individualized work.

Here’s an experimental  lesson I created using the video of Clay Shirky’s speech “How Social Media Can Make History”
