1.Record- 在主栏中,尽可能多地记录一些重要事实、思想、概念等。

2.Reduce,归纳- 在线索栏,将这些事实,思想和概念归纳概括为一个词汇、或一句短话。

3.Recite,背诵 - 利用线索栏的提示,尽可能全面、而非机械地,用你自己的语言复述你所记录的主栏中有关讲座内容的事实、思想,然后对照笔记确认你所讲的。

4.Reflect,反思 - 思考这些材料与课程、单元/被讨论的科目之间的关系,这部分内容卸载总结栏。

5.Review,总结 - 每周花10分钟快速回顾你的笔记,你将会记住你所学习的大部分内容。

How To Video Curation: YouTube Playlists

How To Video Curation: YouTube Playlists | Curation in Higher Education |

From the article: 

"...I really don't like playing a guessing game and taking a stab at random videos.

...Playlists translate those single minutes into double-digit minutes or an hour if you've constructed a compelling string of content.


I know whenever I first find a video and get interested in the creator's channel, I like to find the most-viewed videos first and work my way through their greatest hits.


If those creators construct a playlist of those particular videos, it makes it easier to navigate.


...most channels are not going to be that consistent. It's good to have a "portfolio" of what represents the best work, or keeps a specific audience tuned in with a particularly compelling theme.

Much like annotations and other links, playlists can also be used to tent-pole new videos by providing a playlist full of great content that ultimately leads to the newest video.


...playlists can help improve your standing in the mystical YouTube algorithm."

A Curated Collection of Innovative Documentaries: The MIT Docubase

The open documentary lab

Robin Good's insight:


 Docubase is a project of the MIT Open Documentary Lab that aims to create a collaborative, participatory community around a growing collection of innovative documentaries curated by experts and outsiders alike.


Documentaries can be searched and sorted easily in a number of ways (most recent, most viewed, alphabetical order / or as a list rather than a mosaic). The interface is slick, colorful and simple to use.


More than 140 documentaries are already available and a selected group of curators has put together a number of publicly available playlists designed aroound key themes connecting these clips. 




The curators: 


A fantastic resource for documentary lovers and a great example of how in an open and participatory project, curation can play a fundamental role.


Free to use.
