TED Talks

TED Talks began as a simple attempt to share what happens at the Technology Entertainment Design Conference with the world. Under the slogan “ideas worth spreading,” talks were released online beginning in June 2006. They rapidly attracted a global audience in the millions. As of November 2012, TED Talks have been viewed one billion times. TED topics include technology, entertainment, design, business, science, and global issues. This course will provide you with a viewing of videos of the most watched TED Talks. Class time will offer the opportunity for discussion of the topic with a facilitator. Below is a list of the top
