A college level course using TED as the driver for discussion, research, and learning.
Hi all: I'm a faculty at the National University of Singapore, School of Computing. I've been asked to teach an advanced Human Computer Interaction (HCI) course this semester, and plan to use many more videos as the basis for class lecture and starting conversations about lecture topics. Since HCI overlaps with (interaction) design, I'll be using a number of the design talks in class, and for starters in our first week (it's still the first week of class now) we watch Salman Khan's update about the Khan Academy (http://www.ted.com/talks/salman_khan_let_s_use_video_to_reinvent_education.html) as a starting point to talk about the future of education and about evaluation methodologies. I hope to use both Coursera (Scott Klemmer's HCI class) and TED as platforms where students in the class can engage the global community and get a chance to interact with folks much more (or less!) experienced than themselves. http://www.comp.nus.edu.sg/~kanmy/courses/4249_2012/
