How can I share my lesson idea with TED-Ed?
Each TED-Ed Animation video is the result of a collaboration between a knowledgeable educator or expert, the TED-Ed team, and a professional animator. We’re always looking for new lesson ideas, and we’d love to hear from you!
If you have an idea for a lesson that you think would be a good fit for the TED-Ed lesson library, please let us know about an educator or expert who deals with that topic through our educator nomination form. You can nominate yourself, someone that you know personally, or even someone whose work, books, articles, or ideas you recommend.
Can I submit my video to be a TED-Ed lesson?
If you have a great video that you want to use in a TED-Ed lesson, please feel free to create your own TED-Ed lesson page around it using our create a lesson page. You’ll be able to add your own questions, materials, and discussion prompts to contextualize your video. When you’re done, you’ll receive a unique link to your lesson page that you can share with your students, your organization, or the world!
If you have created a lesson page that you’re really proud of, feel free to share it with our team by emailing it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re always excited to see how people are using the TED-Ed platform, and we sometimes even feature exceptional user lessons in our public lesson library!
Can I become a TED-Ed animator?
Definitely! We welcome you to submit your work to the TED-Ed directors through the Recommend an Animator form.
Can I get involved with TED-Ed as a sound designer or voice actor?
Yes - TED-Ed is always interested in hearing from new sound designers, voice actors, and other video artists!
Please go ahead and send us your information using the Recommend an Animator form – even though the language of this form is targeted at animators, it will get your information to our production team.
Can I create translations for TED-Ed Animations?
Yes - TED translators are all volunteers and are an incredibly vital part of the TED community! Learn more on how to become a TED Translator.
Note that TED-Ed does not allow our videos to be downloaded, edited, or redistributed without our direct supervision, so we cannot give you permission to download our videos and add your own translations.
Can I create dubbed voice overs for TED-Ed Animations?
We are currently working on a few projects for dubbing TED-Ed Animations - you can see a playlist of our dubbed Spanish language videos, and more are on the way!
Creating this dubbed content is a slow process, but if you're interested in helping us with this work, the best way to get involved is by becoming a TED Translator.
TED and TED-Ed both do all of our closed captioning through this online community of volunteer translators. All dubbed TED-Ed content is based on the translations created by TED Translators, and we are always excited to welcome more translators. To get involved, please visit the TED translator page.
Note that TED-Ed does not allow our videos to be downloaded, edited, or redistributed without our direct supervision, so we cannot give you permission to add a dubbed voice over yourself or upload our videos to your own channel or website.
