Wasn't sure how I'd use this as as I already post videos and students submit their own self produced videos via the Edmodo platform. Then I realized – if students post their own videos via Ted Ed they can create their own assessments to go with their videos – a great way to get peer assessment & feedback. There is room for differentiation via the increasing difficulty level of the assessment option types that can be designed to accompany the videos.

Excellent resource – does what you need from a VLE/LMS except with great ease of use: organized online libraries for you & your students, and easy, intuitive homework setting & submission. Superior to systems like moodle due to ease of use and better for collaborative work. Great for students who have trouble organising themselves and 'losing' homework – it's always there, in 'the cloud'. Very useful as a basis for revision and for the teacher it's an organized store of resources: websites, documents, videos and quizzes that you can re use. A great resource – and it's free.
