The TED-Ed project — TED’s education initiative — makes short video lessons worth sharing, aimed at educators and students. Within TED-Ed’s growing library of lessons, you will find carefully curated educational videos, many of which are collaborations between educators and animators nominated through the TED-Ed platform.

Our very own Director of Humanities, Mark Robinson, has collaborated with TED-Ed to make range of videos:

Edpuzzle allows you to build a video bank from a number of places across the internet which you can then share with your class.



Edpuzzle also allows you to track who in your class has actually viewed the video. Perfect for Flipped Learning, you could assign the video for the students to watch before or after class then check to see if the students are viewing the material or not.

The Chrome extension adds a small button on to the page of a YouTube video when you watch one, when you click it you can then add it to your Class and add your own voice over, interactive questions or annotations if you want students to really focus on a certain section or idea.

The best part? It’s free for educators! Like the sound of all this? Check out Edpuzzle user Ms Oudiz uses it to improve her students essay writing skills as well as checking out the Edpuzzle blog posts where some of the posts are written by education experts as guest writers.
