TED-Ed is the educational initiative launched by TED in 2012. This program enables teachers to construct brief animated lectures based on any TED-Ed original video, TED talk or YouTube video. During or at the end of each video lesson, TED-Ed participants typically answer multiple choice questions, and performance feedback is automatically provided to students.
Users who access TED-Ed through the TED website have several options to search for TED-Ed videos. Individuals can filter their search criteria by content, video duration or student type, which includes primary, lower and upper secondary and tertiary levels. As of 2015, some videos available online include a lesson in the origins of germ theory and a video on why women undergo the menstruation cycle.
