We schedule our TED Courses with start dates so that you can move through the content as part of a global group of learners.Along the way, you’ll benefit from a wide range of perspectives, experiences and ideas that your classmates share.
We’ll unlock new content at the start of each week, but it’s completely up to you to determine when you’d like to complete that week’s videos, activities and discussion questions. If you’re a morning person, you can start the day with your TED Course and a cup of coffee. Or maybe you’d like to learn late at night–that’s OK, too!
The only live element of the courses are the optional, weekly virtual events: these are a wonderful way for you to get to know the other learners in your course, and we offer them twice each week to engage learners in different time zones.
