Great Content Curation Models: E-learning Examples by David Anderson

Great Content Curation Models: E-learning Examples by David Anderson | Digital Curation for Teachers | Scoop.it

If you are looking for inspiration when it comes to content curation, here is a great example at work.

 

Elearning Examples is a curated collection of "examples" from the real world of online communications in the areas of "multimedia journalism", "infographics" and "html5" among others.

For each one of these categories the author has written and edited a specific information card containing relevant information, images and links to the work being referenced.

 

The design of the site and the quality of the work "examples" being showcased make this a good example of what good "content curation" is. 

 

Clearly, the work produced by this site, produces no noise or regurgitation of information, but rather offers a better way to make sense and discover the communication areas being curated on the site.

 

Thanks to David Anderson, an e-learning designer & community manager at Articulate for having created this excellent curated set of galleries.

 

Inspiring. 9/10

Content Curation: Why Detecting Emerging Patterns Is Crucial?

Content Curation: Why Detecting Emerging Patterns Is Crucial? | Digital Curation for Teachers | Scoop.it

Romain Goday, wrote this piece for Darwin Ecosystems I've had some great discussions with Romain and he truly understands what it takes to be a relevant curator.

 

He lists the top reasons why content curators need to pay attention to them.

 

We all know the service Content Curators provide in cutting through the noise on the Web, and new tools that are coming out will enable more and more people to become curators.

 

This is what caught my attention:

 

** Successful Curators will need the tools that enable them to latch onto new trends in their area of expertise. 

 

Those who are able to discern patterns and report on them in a timely manner will

 

***Link together pieces of the information puzzle so that others may see what had previously been missed

 

***Provide insights on the significance of events

 

***Demonstrate how those events evolve

 

***The emergence of patterns is a sign that something is happening

 

***The ability to understand and Curate new patterns and generate buzz around them, is what stands Expert Curators above the growing crowd

 

Romain's own takeaway is that Patterns should be the starting point for Curation.
