Many bloggers see content curation as unimaginative and, at the very worst, lazy. But re-sharing, re-tweeting, and re-blogging engaging online content can actually be just as creative as writing fresh, original blog posts.
http://BasicBlogTips.com Scoopit is a hot new curation tool that I mentioned in a previous video. You can add Scoopit to page on your WordPress or Blogger blog with these simple instructions. This is a response to a question that came in through Speak Pipe from Bart Nash from BartNash.com
Content Curation has been on the upside lately, and while there are some who don’t think that it is an ethical form of “content creation”, there are those that think completely the opposite. Whichever side you choose to be, you should know that if you do decide to “curate content”, to always give credit to its original source and never copy an entire article even if you are linking back to its original author. That does not have anything to do with curation and may even be considered as stealing content. While I am at it, creating a list of useless links is also not regarded as curating content.
Updated: CurationSoft released its new version. This is a huge update ...
In this episode of the Ms. Ileane Speaks Podcast I discuss how content curation with Scoop.it can help you establish yourself as an online authority without writing your own content on a blog or website.

Robin Good: Course Hero is a platform which allows the creation and delivery of online video courses curated from the best existing published content on that topic.
There are already ready-made courses to access or you can submit a topic that you would like to video-curate into a course.
"You can learn just about anything from YouTube...if you're willing to dig through millions of videos."
From Techcrunch: "Luckily, Course Hero has done the work for you, offering coherent classes by hosting collections of the best educational YouTube videos and other content.
The newly launched courses section of the eduTech startup’s site now has classes in entrepreneurship, business plan development, and programming in a variety of languages.
By drawing from YouTube and other openly available education, Course Hero plans to set up courses for anything it, or you, can think of.
Each course breaks down into roughly 6 chapters of 6 concept YouTube videos, Justin.tv videos, articles, and more. Unlike Udemy‘s one-teacher-per-class approach, Course Hero courses are compiled from content by many teachers.
Rather than put you at the mercy of long-winded professors, Course Hero trims videos and articles down to their most important teachings.
Along the way you’ll answer quiz questions, take tests to complete chapters, and face a final exam to finish a course and earn proficiency badges..."
