I have been sharing some of the inspiring talks I found online with my readers here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning. I personally find a great pleasure in watching others' great achievements and learning from their mistakes. Today I am sharing with you some great video platforms where I get some of the videos I have included in previous posts. These websites provide inspiring talks and lectures by the world's greatest thinkers and doers, ranging from best selling authors and CEOs to web gurus and university professors.
Check out the list and make sure you share with your colleagues and students.
