I'be always thought Wordpress can be used as a content curation tool as blog posts can sign post students to learning resources elsewhere on the web. This plugin looks like it will make this even easier.

Sharise Cunningham's curator insight, June 28, 10:22 AM

It's always good to have an effective, easy-to-use tool, especially if you're more creatively-minded than technical.

There seem to be a few of these kind of posts out there at the moment - thought leaders who are taking the time out to write about how music affects you and what kinds of music to listen to while you work.  I like this one by Mikael Cho as he is interested in music that helps you create a state of flow - something that we are big believers in here at music2work2.  If you're looking for a good overview of the whole music to work to idea - then this is a good article to start with.

Ally Greer's curator insight, May 16, 4:20 PM

Jantsch, the founder of Duct Take Marketing, is an extremely intelligent marketer and social seller. I automatically buy into everything he writes because he writes with genuine experience and desire to help his audience.


That said, this post is a great one for me as a brand new Director of Content with increasing goals focused on lead generation. As a content person, I'm constantly thinking of how I can produce content that can lead to ROI, rather than solely focusing on how many people will read or share each post that I write. I think it's interesting to take a look at lead generation through content from a different angle; an angle that looks at prospects besides potential customers.


In fact, working together with non-competing businesses and the like is not only extremely beneficial for the validity of your own brand but also gives you access to an entire new community that you might not have reached before.

Are You a News Aggregator or a Content Curator? | Curating Information | Scoop.it

A few weeks ago I read an interesting article by Barry Feldman about whether content curation is news or noise. He made some good points. As he notes, “In the end, the acid test is to ascertain whether or not people like what you’re doing.”

Are you noise or context to your audience needs

Chuck Devers's curator insight, June 4, 4:07 AM

The one thing common to every human on the earth is this - TIME.  No matter how rich, powerful, beautiful, or intelligent every single human has the same 24 hours in a day- no more, no less.

 

Content curation can be a blessing to time-challenged people, who have many eyes sifting for content relevant to their own as well as their fellow professionals - so curation can benefit many by, in effect, giving us all "more time" to see those salient and important topics that help us grow.

 

You can be a part of this process, as well, through content curation.

 

See how it works!
