In 2011 the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation funded the launch of Teaching Channel in the US. Based closely on Teachers TV, Teaching Channel was launched in September 2011 by a team led by ABA Ltd consultants Andrew Bethell, CEO and John Richmond, Vice-President, Production. The Teaching Channel website now has over 200 videos and 30,000 registered users with 70,000 unique visitors a month. The videos are also showcased on ‘Teaching Channel Presents’, a one-hour slot on PBS television.
The Teaching channel has already won its first award at the 2012 Interaction Awards.
