The launch of TED-Ed this week is creating a lot of interest. Inspired by the Khan Academy, this initiative aims to capture and amplify the voices of great educators around the world. Based on the relatively simple idea of offering tools to teachers to capture and distribute their best lessons on video and teaming up these teachers with animators - this initiative could provide terrific learning material to those interested in virtual schooling. As always - the devil is going to be in the detail as the initiaters get to grips with the specifications and requirements of real learners, can they move beyond the superficial to provide really effective learning resources? start the journey here on the brand new TED-Ed YouTube channel..
