I, like many others, love watching TED talks. One of my bucket list items is to attend a TED conference and listen to the talks.

I’ll touch on the three standout aspects of the TED talks I’ve watched and what makes them so effective. Then we’ll take a look at what eLearning can borrow from the science behind TED talks.
