BLACKSBURG, Va., Dec. 13, 2012 – The ideas, insights, and inspiration shared at the inaugural TEDxVirginiaTech event hosted on campus Nov. 10 are now available to watch online.

TEDxTalks released the videos to the public on its YouTube page. Links to each of the presentations can be found on the TEDxVirginiaTech website.

The event’s steering committee received more than 200 nominations for speakers. The number was narrowed down to 21 faculty, staff, and students who spoke to the event’s theme of “Knowing.”

“Guests at the event left feeling informed and inspired by what fellow Hokies are doing here in Blacksburg and beyond,” said Melissa Richards, TEDxVirginiaTech Steering Committing co-chair and director of marking and publications for University Relations. “But we are glad it doesn’t have to stop there. Now, everyone can experience the event and see how Virginia Tech is making a difference through teaching, research, service, and leadership.”
