If you are under the age of 13, you may not create a TED.com account or use a nickname to save responses on TED-Ed lesson pages. You're welcome to watch TED-Ed lessons and enjoy the site, but you need to be at least 13 to create an account on TED.com or submit work using a nickname.
If you require TED-Ed accounts for all students:Each student will be prompted to create a free account when they begin work on your lesson:
We allow account creation either via email or via Facebook. We do not support Google accounts, and we do not offer any batch account creation options. Any questions about creating TED-Ed accounts should be sent directly to TED account support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your students will be able to respond to your Think questions and post comments on discussions. You will be able to send your students feedback on their work.
If you allow students to submit answers using a nickname:Each student will be prompted to enter a simple nickname when they begin work on your lesson:
If a student is using a nickname, they will need to complete all their work in one session, since they will not be able to log back in to add to their responses. Students using nicknames can submit answers to Think questions, but they cannot participate in discussions. Responses from students using nicknames will appear normally in your lesson stats, but you cannot send feedback to students using nicknames since we do not have a way to contact them.
