TED-Ed offers a set of tools that allow you to create interactive lesson pages around great YouTube video content. Follow these three steps to create your own!
- To get started, visit our video search page to select a video. You can search by keyword, or paste in a YouTube URL. TED-Ed Lessons can be created around either public or unlisted YouTube videos. Note that the videos here have not been filtered or vetted by the TED-Ed team, so make sure that you review the contents of any video you're not already familiar with!
- Once you have selected your video, click through into the TED-Ed Lesson editor. You'll be able to add multiple choice questions, open answer questions, discussion prompts, and additional resources to your lesson.
- After you publish your lesson, you'll receive a unique URL for your lesson page. Only you have access to this link, so you can share it with your class in whatever way works for you. As students submit work on your lesson page, you'll be able to monitor their progress and view their answers.
You can also use any of the sample lessons that we provide in our public lesson library with your students. To do this, visit any of our lesson pages that you're interested in, and use the red "Customize This Lesson" button at the bottom right to copy the lesson to your account. Keep any of our pre-populated questions and resources that you like, or feel free to add your own!
You can manage the lessons you've created, return to editing your drafts, or access student work at any time by visiting your lesson activity page.
When you publish a TED-Ed lesson page, you'll receive a unique URL for your lesson page. Only you have access to this link, and it is not listed in site search on ed.ted.com or indexed by search engines. Anyone who has the link to your lesson page can access it.
To get your lesson to your students, simply share the lesson link with them in whatever way works for you. As students submit work on your lesson page, you'll be able to monitor their progress, view their answers, and send them feedback.
