Announcing a new way to use video to create customized lessons: the “Flip This Lesson” feature from TED-Ed, now in beta at ed.ted.com.

With this feature, educators can use, tweak, or completely redo any video lesson featured on TED-Ed, or create lessons from scratch based on a TEDTalk or any video from YouTube. How? Just plug the video in and start writing questions, comments, even quizzes — then save the lesson as a private link and share with your students.

    It is definitely a move towards the reality that teachers no longer are the gatekeepers to knowledge and that students are able to access information in so many different ways.

    thanks for sharing! Love TED talks!!!
