TED Talks is rolling out their new program: TED-Ed. This is set to be a series of TED Talks, under ten minutes in length, whose intention is to potentially rival Khan Academy.
I think the idea is fabulous, and the more well funded, educational services out there and accessible by students, the better. From the video description: TED-Ed's mission is to capture and amplify the voices of great educators around the world. We do this by pairing extraordinary educators with talented animators to produce a new library of curiosity-igniting videos.
In fact, they make it simple for you to nominate a teacher or animator. This can be done here.
