TED launched a new online tool that will turn any YouTube video into a lesson. The conference series is calling the process "flipping a video". Drawing similarity from how a teacher flips the classroom, they assign lectures to watch at home and save class time for working on homework together.
When a teacher flips a video, they add supplemental content such as questions and additional resources.
