After Picnic

So, here is a  video about something I mentioned while we were enjoying the beautiful afternoon, remember...? blue skies, white puffy clouds?

I see it as an opportunity to flex your AE chops to do some good.

TED, which as you know streams 18-minute video lectures about big ideas, opened a new YouTube channel designed for teachers and professors, with videos that help visualize concepts, explain processes etc. If you are not familiar with TED please do watch as many as you can, you will not regret it.

The new channel, called TED-Ed, was announced a year ago, but it is only now unveiling the project’s first videos. The goal is to add new ones regularly. Within three months from now, a new video could appear each day, said Chris Anderson, TED’s curator..

To produce the new videos, the group is connecting content experts with animators to create highly illustrated productions. The average length of these videos is about five minutes (according to The Chronicle of Higher Education). Maybe you become one of those animators.
