Flip a Video on TED-Ed

We previously mentioned the new TED-Ed web site that provides valuable videos for education. Well, the site has added a great new feature that allows you to "flip" one of their videos or any YouTube video.

Flipping, in TED-Ed terminology, is a way to add information, multiple choice questions, open-ended questions, and "dig deeper" resources to a video. You also have access to the flipped videos created by the community. You can use and/or modify these flipped videos as you wish. Teachers can even track participation and student responses to check for understanding.

Take a look at the video tour below to learn all that you can do with this new tool.

It really is pretty cool. I think it would be great for a video explaining the syllabus for your course. You could ask questions to check for understanding.

Ok, I'm in love with this idea :D
I'm soon starting off as a teacher, so this looks amazing. I also started a blog in which I'll give my ideas for interesting lessons and since I'm from Croatia, I would love to write my next post about your web-site because I really like the whole concept. Keep up the good work! :)

This is so wonderful. The uses seem amazing for demonstrations and to reach students that like to see how things work.
