SPOTLIGHT: The TED-Ed Mini-Course Creator

ted-ed-icon

TED-Ed comes from the creators of TED Talks as a means of turning any YouTube video into an interactive lesson.  Choose a video and build discussion boards, multiple choice and open-ended quizzes, and links to additional resources.  TED-Ed is a simple platform with few but straightforward features.  Because TED-Ed lessons are bite-size pieces of content, they are perfect as individual training modules.  You might consider using them in your student or professional staff training efforts.  A lesson on writing learning outcomes?  A lesson on policies and procedures?  Check out the video below for how you might use the platform.  Go to ed.ted.com to find out more.

past-spotlightsThis is a post from my ongoing effort every Wednesday to highlight apps, web services, and vendors that may be of interest to higher education and student affairs professionals.  I do not work for these companies, nor do I always endorse them, per se, but am sharing them to highlight tools that others may find useful.  Have an example to share?  Tweet me.
