Make TED academic video collections available at your university or college

In partnership with Wiley publishing, we’ve created more than two dozen TED Studies for use by higher education institutions, distance learning organizations, and vocational schools. Each TED Study comprises a series of TED Talks, sequenced in a learning arch, from experts on a variety of curriculum topics. TED Studies are licensed with companion educational materials from world-renowned scholars commissioned by Wiley to create highly contextual course materials. If you are interested in making TED Studies available to your students, we’d be happy to share more information about this program.
