  • Welcome to the TED-Ed beta website tour,

  • I'm Logan Smalley.

  • I'm Bedirhan Cinar.

  • I'm Jordan Reeves.

  • And I'm Stephanie Lo.

  • We represent the TED-Ed team,

  • and we're going to tell you about how the TED-Ed website is organized,

  • about the lessons that surround each video,

  • how you can customize, or flip, your own lesson

  • and how you can measure that lesson's effect on your class or the world.

  • Towards the end of the tour, we'll reveal one more major feature

  • that directly affects every person viewing this video.

  • Let's get started with the homepage.

  • On the homepage, you'll find original TED-Ed videos.

  • Each is a lesson recorded by an actual educator

  • that's visualized by a professional animator.

  • You can nominate educators and animators

  • in the Get Involved section of the site.

  • The TED-Ed library can be browsed through two different lenses.

  • Learners can use the Series view to browse videos thematically,

  • and based on their own curiosity.

  • And teachers can use the browse by Subject view to find the perfect short video

  • to show in class or to assign as homework.

  • Every video on TED-Ed is accompanied by a lesson.

  • These lessons don't replace good teaching,

  • but they can be supplementary resources for students and teachers around the world.

  • Let's look at this one, created by a teacher in the U.S. and an animator in the U.K.

  • When you arrive on the lesson page, simply click play.

  • The video will continue to play as you navigate the Lesson sections that surround it.

  • In the Quick Quiz section,

  • you'll find multiple choice questions that check for basic comprehension of the video.

  • You get real-time feedback on your answers,

  • and if you get one wrong, you can use the video hint.

  • You'll find open answer questions in the Think section,

  • and in the Dig Deeper section, you'll find additional resources for exploring the topic.

  • You can complete the lessons anonymously,

  • but if you log in, you can track your own learning across the site.

  • Just visit the Recent Activity feed,

  • and you'll find answers you've saved to lessons that you've already started or completed.

  • And now to one of the most powerful features of the TED-Ed website,

  • flipping a lesson.

  • Flipping a featured lesson allows you to edit each of the lesson's sections.

  • You can edit the title as it relates to your class.

  • You can use the Let's Begin section to provide instructions or context for the lesson.

  • You can select or deselect any Quick Quiz question.

  • In the Think section, you can add your own open answer questions.

  • And in the Dig Deeper section, you can use the resources provided,

  • or add your own.

  • When you finish flipping a lesson, it'll publish to a new and unique URL.

  • Because the link is unique, it can measure the progress of any learner you share it with.

  • You can use it to measure participation

  • and accuracy of any individual student's answers.

  • So that's how you flip a featured TED-Ed video,

  • but we've got one more major feature to tell you about.

  • Using the TED-Ed platform, you can flip any video from YouTube.

  • That means you can create a lesson

  • around any TEDTalk, any TEDx Talk,

  • but also any of the other thousands of great educational videos

  • on YouTube, including the ones that you yourself could record, upload and flip.

  • And through flipping these lessons,

  • together we'll create a free and remarkable library

  • of Lessons Worth Sharing.
