Zeal TED Studio

TED Studio at Zeal Campus

The concept of our TED studio is influenced by TED conferences held worldwide. It is our effort to offer tributes to Richard Saul Wurman, an American information architect, and Chris Anderson, a media entrepreneur for doing pioneering work in building TED which has been passionately spreading ideas, thereby changing attitudes, lives, worldwide.

Keeping our own TED Studio in line with the above, original ideas will be generated in Zeal campus by young students that will help convergence of ideas, provide frugal business solutions that will help to remove barriers between networks, people, process and knowledge. The ideas will be disseminated for the productive use and benefit of the society.

TED @ ZEAL believes that when these barriers are removed, business processes and decision making speed increases, which saves time and money.

TED Conference and TED Global

TED includes the award-winning TED Talks video site, the Open Translation Project and TED Conversations, the inspiring TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize. TED conferences bring together the world’s most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives (in 18 minutes or less). More than 1500 TED Talks are now available, with more added each week. All of the talks are subtitled in English, and many in other languages, too. These videos are released under a Creative Commons BY-NC-ND license, so they can be freely shared and re-posted.
