TED Launches TED-Ed "education lessons worth sharing"

TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design) talks are a global set of conferences owned by the private non-profit Sapling Foundation, formed to disseminate "ideas worth spreading."  TED Talks are a collection of conversations and speeches by a variety of people, on a variety of topics. These topics range from education to humor to politics to science and much more. They are very informative and educational.
They have now launched TED-Ed, a new lesson-based YouTube channel. Aimed primarily at high-school students, it is meant for teachers to submit their best lessons, in a 10 minute or less video. TED will send a portable recording booth out to the teacher whose lessons where chosen. The lesson recordings are then animated and posted on TED-Ed.

Here's a video about TED-Ed

TEDed has a new url: ed.ted, and the new site allows teachers to create interactive quizzes about the videos. Teachers can track their students' performance on the quizzes also.
