Ted Ed Examples

If you saw Ken's post the other day, then you know that Ted Talks now has a way for you to flip any You Tube video and ask questions about the video after its viewed. I tried it with a John Green crash course video about the Dark Ages and then made up a series of about six multiple choice questions for students to answer after viewing the video. The site (which is in beta form) does not allow you to make clickable multiple choice questions yet. But they do exist for some featured videos. For regular users like you and me, we're stuck with either open ended questions or multiple choice that is not clickable. Here is my effort with the John Green video.  And here is another effort--Karen Armstrong talking about the roots of religion during the Axial Age. I used open-ended questions for this video.
