Trends in Ed: 02.16.2011 -TED Launches Quora-Like Platform for Intelligent Discussion

| February 16, 2011

I am dedicating today’s Trends in Ed to EdLab’s hard working Vialogues team. Check out this article reporting the new platform TED announced.

The Quora-like platform enables conversations to take place in three forums: questions, ideas and debates. They’ll also be assigned an expiration date between one day and two weeks from their start. TED has also made other efforts to attract more audience, specifically none English speakers with theTED Open Translation Project,which works to translate the talks for the vast audience of non-English speakers.
