TED launches new education platform with customized teaching tools

Here's what's new on eSchool News site today.

Site of the Week

http://ed.ted.com


TED, a nonprofit organization devoted to spreading big ideas through a series of conferences and a free video platform, has continued its expansion into education by launching a brand-new TED-Ed website with tools to help teachers use video in the classroom. The new platform allows educators to customize videos with follow-up questions and assignments, TED says—an initiative that could help power the “flipped learning” model.

This is the second phase of TED’s expansion into education, following the launch of a TED-Ed YouTube channel last month with several educational videos. (See “Free video lessons offered by leaders in innovation, thinking”.)

With the new TED-Ed platform, “you can use, tweak, or completely redo any lesson featured on TED-Ed, or create lessons from scratch based on any video from YouTube,” the organization says.

Pinterest is a great place to collect images and links to ideas you love, products that rock, and just about anything else under the sun. While most users of the site are still individuals, brands and big businesses have taken note of the major traffic the social media site has been seeing in recent months, and many have begun creating their own Pinterest boards, pinning things from their own sites as well as from around the web.
There are hundreds of brands currently using Pinterest for marketing (a number that will undoubtedly grow before the year is out), and some surprising companies are making the site’s visual features work for them.
Read on to learn about some of the unexpected brands that are drawing in loads of fans from Pinterest.

12 Telling Stats on Female MBAs

Alissa Alvarez has been in touch to remind us about this published article below. 

Photo: OnlineMBA

Just a few decades ago, the thought of a woman owning a business or running a large multi-national company might have drawn sneers or snickers in the business world (and might still from those who are less enlightened), but luckily things have by and large changed for the better for women in business.

Today, women own about 29% of all businesses in the United States and account for about 16% of all corporate officers in Fortune 500 companies. Yet despite significant gains over the past 50 years, female MBAs and other women who want to make a go of a career in business don’t have an easy task ahead of them when it comes to gaining equality in the workplace.

Even women who graduate from top-tier business schools and who hold prestigious MBA degrees may not make as much or get as far in their careers as their male counterparts. Read on to learn some of the most telling stats about female MBAs that show that equality in the business world still has a long way to go.

5 Sources for Free Online Classes

Today I have Audrey Porterman as guest blogger. Please be sure to check out her unique guest post. Guest posts are always welcome, please contact me.

Online degree programs are a great way to get the education you need and still have the flexibility to work, raise a family, or pursue other goals. Taking courses online is also a great way to continue your education, getting additional training where needed to advance your skills or just pursue continuing education for your own pleasure.

Many respected institutions of higher education are now making some of their online offerings available for free, giving students everywhere the opportunity to get additional training without having to strain their budgets. Here are 5 top sources for free online classes in a variety of fields:



MIT Open Courseware(http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/)
The highly respected Massachusetts Institute of Technology offers a number of free online courses through its open courseware program. Courses are available in entrepreneurship, architecture, engineering, health sciences, management, science, and more.
Open Yale Courses (http://oyc.yale.edu/)

You don't need to be able to get into this Ivy League school to benefit from its quality program. Free courses through its online program offer everyone the chance to get a taste of the Ivy League. There are course offerings across the departments, including African American studies, astronomy, chemistry, economics, history, political science, and much more.
This online learning resource center has interactive multimedia certification courses and standards-based learning. You must create an account in order to access the courses, but the account is free. Investing, real estate, and entrepreneurship are among the many topics covered here.
Learn the skills you need to advance your career with free courses on this site. Programs cover basic office skills like Excel and Word, as well as advanced programming courses like HTML and A+ Additional courses are available for pay.
There is an extensive catalogue of free courses on this site, including art, film, accounting, business, computer science, biology, and much more.

All learning is self-directed and can be conducted in your own home and at your own schedule, allowing you to take charge of your learning.
