What about creating outlines for TED talks for easy reference?
I think it would be very helpful if we shared our outlines of our favorite talks so people can easily capture the main points of talks and recall key points.
An outline would be helpful for a number of reasons:
- Distilling key points - After watching a talk or reading the transcript, an outline would be helpful to have "notes" of the talk to refresh one's memory, recall a key point or remember a particularly poignant phrase
- Comparing talks - Outlines would allow students/viewers to compare and contrast the views of one speaker to another in a point, counterpoint fashion.
- Research - students/viewers researching talks would be able to quickly determine if this is the right talk they remembered, or be able to quickly answer questions like
What was the 3rd point the speaker made?
What was the example for that particular concept?
Was it this speaker who mentioned ______ or another?
