Making a TED Video Your Own

The fine folks at TED-Ed have just released a great new video customization tool. So new it is still in beta, the “Flip This Lesson” feature allows instructors to “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.”

You can add an introduction, insert additional content, or add reflection questions at the end of a video. All you need to do is select and insert the video “and start writing questions, comments, even quizzes — then save the lesson as a private link and share with your students. The site allows you to see who’s completed the lessons and track individual progress.”

Here’s the TED-Ed video about it:

Actually, the tool can be used with any video that allows you to embed it elsewhere on the web – isn’t that great? If you’re looking for videos, you might try reviewing the Koehler Center eLearning website on Internet Streaming Video Resources. Not all of the links there will allow you to embed the video file, but some will.
