There are over 1,500 TED talks available on-line. TED "a clearinghouse that offers free knowledge and inspiration from the world's most inspired thinkers, and also a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other." There are several TED talks I use in my classes and I encourage students to consult TED to locate talks on topics that interest them.
