"A permanent initiative, TED-Ed harnesses the talent of the world's best teachers and visualizers, extending great lessons beyond a single classroom to anyone with internet access.
In the first stage of this initiative, TED-Ed launches a new education channel on YouTube today
. It offers up original video content that marries the talent of great teachers with top animators to bring concepts like neuroscience to life in in short videos, typically 5 minutes long. The channel is part of the youtube.com/edu
offering – a collection of half a million educational videos – available in many schools as well as to the public online."
