The No-Nonsense Guide To Make Money From Content Curation

The No-Nonsense Guide To Make Money From Content Curation | Digital Curation for Teachers | Scoop.it
Content curation is all about collecting best of the stuff from the web. A content curation blog is one easy way to make money and add passive income.
catspyjamasnz's insight:

Some of these suggestions seem a little callous, but also good tips on setting yourself up as a hub or supernode in your topic.

 An interesting lengthy article displayin the growing content curation industry.

Deanna Dahlsad's curator insight, January 30, 7:52 PM

I think the most important lesson here is that if you want to make money directly from content curation you need to curate/publish on your own self-hosted website. (In this sense, we are back to curation with your own personal comments added in as a form of blogging.)


If you want content curation to "add value" to your service or commerce business (by marketing or otherwise reaching your target market) your calculations will vary.

Athabasca University Press - Teaching Crowds: Learning and Social Media

Athabasca University Press - Teaching Crowds: Learning and Social Media | Digital Curation for Teachers | Scoop.it
catspyjamasnz's insight:

"In Teaching Crowds, Dron and Anderson introduce a new model for understanding and exploiting the pedagogical potential of Web-based technologies, one that rests on connections — on networks and collectives — rather than on separations. Recognizing that online learning both demands and affords new models of teaching and learning, the authors show how learners can engage with social media platforms to create an unbounded field of emergent connections. These connections empower learners, allowing them to draw from one another’s expertise to formulate and fulfill their own educational goals. In an increasingly networked world, developing such skills will, they argue, better prepare students to become self-directed, lifelong learners."

Steven Verjans's curator insight, October 21, 9:12 AM

Learning as an inherently social activity, through novel ways of connecting with people around the globe. Learning in groups vs. networks vs. sets vs. collectives. Definitely worth a read. Freely available as usual from AU Press.

Why we need badges in science

Why we need badges in science | Digital Curation for Teachers | Scoop.it
In the world of research, as with most vocational settings, there’s a lot that gets done that goes unrecognized. That unrecognized work can not only be crucial for getting to the actual research outcome put forward in the form of publications, but also for reflecting important skills gained.
Yet, outside of the traditional means of credit—such as degrees, publications, role titles—there is no real way of recognizing this skill with the same issuing authority as with which one receives a degree o

How Content Curation Informs Content Creation

How Content Curation Informs Content Creation | Digital Curation for Teachers | Scoop.it

If you are actively curating content as a business strategy, you are sitting on a great source of guidance to help you pick good topics. Of course you’ll monitor success of your own content over time. But there’s more. You should keep tabs on a wider range of content to expand your purview.

Barbara Vermaas's curator insight, October 31, 5:43 AM

Content curation is de 1e stap; dit geeft inzicht in wat er al beschikbaar is, en vooral, in wat er nog nodig is. En dus: geeft inzicht op welk gebied je content creation zou kunnen/moeten inzetten.

Dawn Matheson's curator insight, October 31, 10:50 AM

We hear the term a lot - content curation. What is it, and how does it differ from social sharing in general.
