  • Content Organization Modular, Reusable Basic unit of content is a module -- small “chunks” of knowledge, addressing one topic or a single aspect of a complex topic Sounds, movies, animations, images, equations, and more can be included in modules Multiple modules can be organized into a course or textbook Combine modules from different authors to build a course or collection to fit your needs

  • Lenses are owned by organizations like TED, professional societies, publishers, even individuals. Each lens focuses on the part of the KC deemed “high quality”. Let’s EVERYONE become an editor and reviewer. WILL SEE INCREASING USE OF SOCIAL SOFTWARE, EVEN IN ACADEMICS, BECAUSE… Traditional peer review process is broken – will be replaced by “reputation” systems like this, social software, post-publication peer review
  • Thanks – it’s great to be here – this has been a great conference. Let me start with a couple questions: Has anyone here learned anything new? Met someone new? Been inspired? How many of you would recommend this to a friend? How about 6 billion friends? What I’d like to talk about today is a big deam – a dream of scaling up this extraordinary TED experience from the 800 of us to the entire world. (There are 800 of you here today; what if we could scale this up to 800M or a few billion and make this incredible TED experience accessible to EVERYONE?)
