I love TED-Ed, and am a fan of the Khan Academy so I am really excited to see this!  Colleagues have been playing with it however, and it is not quite there yet. So I will hold back for a little while, but not long…

world-shaker:

Announcing a new way to use video to create customized lessons: the “Flip This Lesson” feature from TED-Ed, now in beta at ed.ted.com.

With this feature, educators can use, tweak, or completely redo any video lesson featured on TED-Ed, or create lessons from scratch based on a TEDTalk or any video from YouTube. How? Just plug the video in and start writing questions, comments, even quizzes — then save the lesson as a private link and share with your students. The site allows you to see who’s completed the lessons and track individual progress. It’s still in beta, but we’re so excited about this feature we had to share.

Click through for a short video on how it works.

Where is Ireland on this list?  I am shocked by how far down the list the UK is, I would also love to know how the individual countries within the UK rank.  In my experience, internet connection in Wales is pretty poor.

Iceland has the most internet users per capita.
