If I want to add quick quiz to my flipped video, how do you do that? I would love any suggestions or help!
Hi Terra, You didn't miss a step! Currently, there isn't a way to add quick quiz questions to your video. We're currently testing the creation of custom quick quiz questions and we will be launching that feature in the next few weeks. One thing to note is we're also adding the ability to go back and edit lessons that you've created so if you have a lesson now and want to add quick quiz questions to it down the line, you'll be able to do so no problem. With regards to seeing student data collectively, one of the big things we're working on is overhauling the student activity page. If you have any specific suggestions for things you'd like to see, please let us know! Finally, in terms of exporting students' responses into a spreadsheet, we will be adding the ability to export/save a CSV of all the student responses sometime in the next few months. Please let me know if you have any additional questions. Thanks!

Does anyone know how to create multiple choice questions when you create your own lesson?
Hi Sandy & Everyone Else! Unfortunately, for the time being, there is no way to add your own Quick Quiz/Multiple Choice questions to a TED-Ed lesson. One of the things we are currently working on (we just finalized the design today!) is making a Quick Quiz/Multiple Choice question creator/editor. Building it is our #1 priority right now (in terms of development) and it should be released sometime in September. Please let me know if you have any additional questions/comments/concerns. Thanks!

When I want to FLIP a YouTube video, it won't let me...? It says that I need to "enter a description" of the lesson but I can't find where.
Hi Michael, The "Enter a description for Lesson" message pops up if the Let's Begin section of your lesson is completely empty. Have you filled out that part of the lesson editor? Please let me know. (Also, in hindsight, I realize that message lacks a bit of clarity in what's missing and we'll be updating it so it's much more helpful). Thanks for reaching out.

How long between posting to YouTube and having access to TED-Ed to flip a new video?
Hi Josh, That's really odd. The first thing I would check is to see if the video is done processing on YouTube's side. Assuming it is, if you're searching by title/keyword, it may take a while for YouTube to update their search results which is why the video may not show up immediately. One question for you is, have you tried searching for the video using the video's url? We've found that, if someone is looking to flip a specific video, it's usually easier to paste that video's full YouTube url into the search field than the title or keywords (the video normally gets returned as the only search result). Hopefully searching by the video's url will reduce the delay you're experiencing. Good luck (and keep us posted)!

Which video game has challenged your perspective on the way you live your life and how?
TETRIS! Tetris easily surpasses every other game I played in terms of impact on life. Looking back, it's the first time I would actively line things up in a grid (which is huge in terms of being able to design anything, let alone pack a suitcase or organize a closet). Because of its ubiquity when I was a kid (it was came with the original Gameboy, was available on most computers, and, via a handy cable, was on everyone's Texas Instruments calculator), lots of very odd debates emerged about what was considered winning; hi-score, the level you reached/lines you cleared, or the length of time you played. Everyone had their own opinion of what it was to win the game and all of those opinions still worked together and no one was either right or wrong. How awesome was it that everyone could disagree about what winning Tetris was, all be correct, and be ok with everyone else's differing opinions because, in the frame of the game, they all made sense even if you didn't agree?
