Robin Good's curator insight, June 4, 5:27 PM



If you are into content curation for the long run, do not make this mistake.

Nuno Figueroa, who shared, in an interesting and informative article on Business2Community, his deep frustration with content curation tools and with the incredible amount of work one has to do to find, vet, add value and share truly valuable content online, wrote
:


"I still have to do all the searching for new and good content sources and filtering the content I get. Separating the crap from the awesome. All by myself. This is hard work and very time consuming".


But wait a minute! What you describe here is the key, absolute value a curator can provide: his time.


The more we try to bypass this in favour of tools that can automate this time-consuming and difficult work the more we give up the opportunity to truly add unique value to your curated content.


Not to say that a good curator should not have a great toolset to help him out.


But remember: There will never be any tool that can do better search than you (unless you know nothing about what you are curating). No tool that can tell whether an article is a retake of another one or a true original, or that can evaluate the insight and ideas a new perspective from a new author unknown author can bring.


This in my opinion is what a content curator does.


Would a painter or a sculptor want to automate or speed up parts of his artistic creation process?


Unless the artist goal was focused exclusively on quantity and he had no enjoyment in the creation process there would be no need or desire to speed up or automate the creation process as this is what the artist, by definition, has chosen to do.


Similarly the content curator is socially useful and provides value to other people by utilising his many skills and experiences to gather, find, collect, organise, add value and present information artifacts covering a specific topic, interest, issue or event. His realisation is in doing such things not in bypassing or speeding up these steps.


This is one of the consequences of selling content curation as a content marketing "device" that can save time and make you look good.
 

If you are after *volume* and *eyeballs* you will publish funny cats.


But volume and traffic will not command much more than increasingly slimming advertising budgets. And for how long more?


What we should be all after his instead learning and refining those curatorial skills that can help us provide the only thing our readers care about: having truly trusted guides that provide high-value information services for the specific interests they have.


Yes, a content curator will also use, test and experiment with many different tools to aid its ability to search, find, collect and organise information, but definitely not in order to save time but in order to enhance and expand his abilities to provide greater value through those activities.


What do you think?




Terry Elliott's comment, June 9, 7:05 AM
Curation requires time. Yes. I don't think the automatized curation tools are long for this world. There is absolutely a hunger for good curation like you describe in music, in software, in every discipline.

The Key Value of Content Curation: Enhancing Who We Are


Via Robin Good

Robin Good's curator insight, May 15, 7:57 AM



"When we curate content online, it enhances who we are, both in the sense of... - we learn things, and we help to define ourselves by understanding our own interests - and in a more external way, by allowing other people to better understand who we are.


It becomes part of our ethos, part of our personal brand."


Dr. Gideon Burton of Brigham Young University offers an interesting insight into why curation is such a valuable activity for humankind by pointing out that our efforts to gather, collect and order the information chaos surrounding us, is a critical activity to understand ourselves, to learn more about anything, to make sense of the world we live in.


Even at the lowest, most amateurish level of social sharing or bookmarking, our best efforts to collect and order information, even when they are imperfect, incomplete or even inaccurate, do have great value.


The value is in the opportunity we create for others to discover, to get a better hint or a better understanding, of what we have collected and sorted. And even when collecting is a personal act of self-expression or a reflection of a pet interest, still, there is value, as "people are a very important way by which we can order our understanding of the world".


Content curation enhances who we are because it helps us Understand and Navigate the world we live in through someone else eyes and experience.



Inspiring. Truthful. Great perspective from which to look and appreciate the full value of curation.


Highly recommended. 10/10

Robin Good's curator insight, May 11, 12:37 PM



"Curation is not about ownership. It’s not about proprietary rights to whatever environment or resource or experience you create. 


The job of a curator, Paolo Antonelli reminds me, is not to take and possess but to show and educate. 


The job of a curator is to make ideas accessible to as many people as possible.


Because creativity is about more than copyrights and patents. It’s about inspiring people to make something, be something, think something, do something – to change themselves so that we just might change the world."

Olga Senognoeva's curator insight, August 12, 2014 4:39 AM

"... Как будет выглядеть будущее образования?


1. Цена содержания будет свободное падение в течение ближайших семи лет. Мы услышали первые раскаты прошлом году, когда Верховный суд постановил , что американские владельцы авторских прав не может остановить импорт и перепродавать, защищенных авторским правом контента легально продаются за рубежом, прокладывая путь для глобального рынка учебников.


2. Поставка учебных материалов будет набухать. Это может показаться нелогичным, но, как мы движемся в сторону глобального рынка за содержание, создатели будет цена берущих, не в состоянии командовать много переговорах, учитывая огромный размер распределительных платформ (думаю Itunes). В то время как это может сделать меньше смысла для профессора в Нью-Йорке, чтобы написать книгу, она делает много смысла для одного в Мумбаи.


3. Образование будет персональной. С содержания обучения предоставляется по требованию, студенты будут более иметь возможность строить программы на получение степени из широкого спектра учреждений, предлагающих особые курсы.
Университеты будут властвовать курирование, работая талантов агентств. Они нарисую роялти и лицензионные платежи от содержания профессора создания и хранения. Во многих отношениях, роль лучших университетов станет еще больше ориентирован на выявление, инвестируя в и уборки отдачу от большого таланта.


Студенты являются победителями здесь. Снижение стоимости содержания в сочетании с усилением конкуренции среди профессоров, и более низкой средней рентабельности для университетов в профессора, приведет к снижению затрат на обучение и больших профессоров choice.Great с междисциплинарных знаниях великих кураторов-увидим лицензии и лицензионных платежей подняться как они Команда эффект масштаба в распределении. Существующие институты с большими запасами станет лейблов: платформы, которые инвестируют в большой талант. И распределительные платформы, викария содержание будет делать хорошо, командуя как эффект масштаба и охвата."

Filomena Gomes's curator insight, April 18, 9:57 AM
Robin Good's insight:

 

New interesting tools make it possible to create online courses and full online learning programs, by drastically simplifying the design process while providing simple tools to curate and bring together valuable existing content already published online.

 

The first I'd like to bring to your attention is Classmill, which makes it very easy to create online courses by providing a very simple and intuitive interface and allowing the author to add with ease his own texts, as well as images, links and video clips coming from elsewhere on the web. Anyone can publish an online course and make it visible to everyone. Only those who register and join in can see the full contents and can participate in the integrated discussion area for the course.

 

The second one is Learnyst, which goes one step beyond Classmill by facilitating the creation of a full online school with multiple courses and the ability to charge for selected ones. 

 

Both tools are extremely easy to use, and allow the assembly of existing materials, whether owned or produced by others. 

 

This is an interesting trend as in the past most tools to deliver educational content relied on the author creating and posting only his own materials. The fact that you now can easily include valuable content published by others opens up the gates both for the curation of lots of existing content into useful learning courses as well as for the issue of whether and how to compensate curated content from others. 

 

This economic issue though, does not preclude tons of free high-quality content to be re-used and showcased in many new free learning courses and it provides those who want to learn with even more non-commercial alternatives to master their favorite topics. 

 

Takeaway: You are going to see more of these tools and more subject-matter experts create valuable learning resources by bringing together key relevant content produced by others while adding tangible value, perspective and context.

If you have a strong passion or expertise it's time to start thinking about building your own online school. 

 

 

Check out these two tools:

- Learnyst

- Classmill

 

Other curation tools for learning moving in the same direction:

- Gibbon

- Learnist

- Educrate

Technology is way too often given a bad rap by administrators and educators as a distraction or a hazard for students.  When technology is integrated intentionally with foresight and with intention of addressing specific growth-oriented goals, it increases the potential to help students learn, develop, and grow in unique ways.  It can be used to help address the needs as described by Maslow.
