TED Conferences LLC
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
Shimon Schocken and Noam Nisan developed a curriculum for their students to build a computer, piece by piece. When they put the course online - giving away the tools, simulators, chip specifications, and other building blocks - they were surprised that thousands jumped at the opportunity to learn, working independently as well as organizing their own classes in the first massive open online course (MOOC). In this TEDTalk, Schocken and Nisan issue a call to forget about grades and tap into the self-motivation to learn.
