How TED Masterclass works in schools

Professional learning leaders, the community of educators you serve is overflowing with brilliant, innovative, and — in all likelihood — extremely under-circulated ideas. TED Masterclass for Organizations is a professional learning program that will help you surface and celebrate the best ideas within your school, district or educational organization.

Once you are enrolled, you’ll be able to...
Distribute the TED Masterclass course

Delivered via the TED Masterclass for Organizations app, which is optimized for educators, the TED Masterclass course will guide your colleagues through the process of developing a TED-style talk.

Track your educators' progress

The TED Masterclass administrative portal will allow you to track your educators' progress through the course and elevate the most compelling ideas within your school or district.
