Welcome the TEDX University Resources
The official TEDX Resource for Students all over the world.
Our aim is to educate as many people as humanly possible in the shortest amount of time. It has become apparent, since the success of the TEDX Video publications, that people prefer to watch videos to learn from leaders and influencers. Whilst we appreciate the book form still holds tremendous value, it is worth looking at as many mediums as possible in order to learn more. Development of interpersonal skills as well as subject based material for individual courses, both require a flexible approach in order to actually learn.
Over the past decade, our team have noticed a drive in popularity with video based material, as it seems to be interpreted easier by the majority of viewers. It is clear that a global audience is reached quicker and more effectively with Trending resources from Youtube, Instagram, Facebook and of course TEDX.
There are different variables with the TEDX videos, for example the typical talks are around 15 minutes in length approximately.
There are also varying types of events, such as the following:
Standard Events – This is for more local based talks.
Youth Events – Aimed for children and other school based educational establishments.
University Events – Hosted in Higher Education facilities such as colleges and universities.
ED Events – This is for lecturers and professors as well as students, who want to discuss education.
Other events such as Salon, TEDx Live and TEDx Women are also available. In addition there are Business based events as well as Library events and Level 2 events.
This resource was launched to bring out the best in people who are interested, passionate & globally aware students.
Our aim is to bring together people from all different walks of life with an interest in what goes on around them, whatever discipline. We want to inspire minds, motivate action and start 100’s discussions between everyone who attends! Check out the TEDX Partners page as well as the Official TEDX Bath Education blog pages.
So What is TEDX – Bath University
TEDx is a program of independently organized TED events, which are designed to help communities, organizations, and individuals share ideas and spark conversations on a local level. The TEDx program was formed in 2009 and is based on the success of the original TED conference, which was founded in 1984.
Here’s a brief history of how TEDx was formed:
The founding of TED: In 1984, a nonprofit organization called TED (Technology, Entertainment, and Design) was founded by Richard Saul Wurman and Harry Marks. The organization’s mission was to share “ideas worth spreading” through a series of conferences and talks featuring experts and thought leaders from various fields.
The expansion of TED: Over the years, the TED conference grew in popularity, with talks and videos reaching millions of people around the world. In 2006, the TED website was launched, making TED talks available online for free.
The formation of TEDx: In 2009, TED launched the TEDx program as a way to bring the spirit of TED to local communities around the world. The “x” in TEDx stands for “independently organized,” as TEDx events are organized by local communities and individuals who want to host their own TED-like events.
The growth of TEDx: Since its inception, the TEDx program has grown rapidly, with thousands of events taking place each year in more than 170 countries. TEDx events cover a wide range of topics and are organized by a diverse range of individuals and organizations, including schools, corporations, and nonprofit organizations.
The formation of TEDx was a natural evolution of the TED conference, which had already established a strong reputation for bringing together innovative thinkers and ideas. By creating a platform for local communities to host their own TED-like events, the TEDx program has helped to democratize the TED experience and make it accessible to a wider audience.
So Who set up TEDX
The TEDx program was not founded by a single individual, but rather by the organization TED (Technology, Entertainment, and Design).
The TEDx program was launched in 2009 as a way to bring the spirit of TED to local communities around the world, and it is based on the success of the original TED conference, which was founded in 1984 by Richard Saul Wurman and Harry Marks. While the TEDx program was not founded by a specific individual, it has been led by a team of executives and organizers within the TED organization, who oversee the program’s growth and development around the world.
