TED Talks Partners with WiderNet

We’re thrilled to announce that the next eGranary will include all 1,900 of the TED Talks videos!  TED Talks, big ideas in short Internet videos, are about to spread even further thanks to their collaboration with WiderNet.  

Both TED and WiderNet are committed to the power of education and ideas to change lives.  This partnership will spread inspiring TED stories of innovation and hope to millions of new users.  

 “As TED extends its mission to hard-to-reach parts of the world, particularly where Internet connectivity is constrained or costly, we’re keen to partner with the right platforms to reach these underserved regions,” says Deron Triff, TED’s Director of Global Distribution and Licensing.  "eGranary’s solution is an important part of our strategy and we’re excited to support their efforts."

Cliff Missen, WiderNet Director, and a TED Fellow in 2007 notes,  “The addition of the TED Talks to the next eGranary will spread important and exciting ideas to people who have been left out of the conversation.”

TED is an internationally known nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks in 18 minutes or less. TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages.
