Paula Silva's insight:

Although in the educational field this question may not be as critical as it is for marketing, it’s something one has to have in mind all the time.

Always give credit to content which is not yours (whatever its format).

 

As the author of the post writes: content curation «involves only using carefully selected parts of the content, adding relevant commentary or insight, or highlighting specific parts of it, and always assigning credit to the content’s originator (…)». Whether you are curating for educational purposes or for profit curation is an «honest endeavor that adds value, offers fresh perspectives, and enhances the ecosystem of ideas that is the digital landscape».
