The alliance with the world’s top online video venue marked the start of a TED-Ed initiative to combine exceptional teaching with eye-catching animations to make captivating lessons available to anyone on the Internet. “We want to show that learning can be thrilling,” said TED ‘curator’ Chris Anderson.  “By turning great lessons into vivid scholastic tools, these TED-Ed videos are designed to catalyze curiosity,” he continued. Videos made available at youtube.com/tededucation were designed to be captivating and short, lasting no longer than 10 minutes so teachers could easily show them to students in real-world classrooms. Lessons are geared for students and teachers but should appeal to “lifelong learners,” according to TED.
