TED Talks

TED stands for “Technology, Education, Design” and there are thousands of interesting talks available free for everyone. They are all quite short – usually with a time limit of 18 minutes or less. There are several ways to access them:

  1. via the TED Website at https://www.ted.com/talks

  2. via YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/TED

  3. via the TED app, which you can download to tablets, smartphones or Chromebooks. This is free from your usual app provider (Google Play for Android devices or the App Store for Apple devices).
