Content Curation Tools: 21 Criteria To Select And Evaluate Your Ideal One

Content Curation Tools: 21 Criteria To Select And Evaluate Your Ideal One | Digital Curation for Teachers | Scoop.it

Excerpt from article written and curated by Master Curator Robin Good and published on MasterNewMedia:
"Many such curation tools also appear to be very similar to one another, especially if evaluated exclusively from the type of news streams or visual collections that can be produced with them.

The most limiting factor of all, in making an effective selection when it comes to content curation tools is the lack of a proper evaluation framework, identifying the specific requirements and needs that need to be met by the content curation tool to be selected.

I am now publicly sharing this list of selection criteria, complemented by relevant questions to be asked when verifying the availability of these features to help both individuals, small organizations and companies evaluate better, and in a more systematic fashion, their ideal content curation toolset.

Here the features-list, organized into 21 groups. (*I have marked with HS those features relevant only to hosted content curation services.)
1. Import and Export functions
2. Content Organization
3. Clipping Abilities
4. Integrated Search
5. Content Monitoring - News Discovery
6. Filtering
7. Display formats
8. Arrangement
9. Navigation
10.Editing and Formatting
11.Ownership - HS
12.Collaboration - HS
13.Private Collections / Streams - HS
14.Intelligence - Memory
15.Crediting and Attribution
16.Preservation - Archiving
17.Distribution options
18.SEO - HS
19.Reach (for hosted curation platforms) - HS
20.Integrations - API - HS
21.Branding - White Label - Design Customization - HS..."

Each group is analyzed with more informations. Read full, useful and interesting article here:

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, 2014 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.

Curation: Manage Your Attention Not Just Your Time

Curation: Manage Your Attention Not Just Your Time | Digital Curation for Teachers | Scoop.it

This guest post is by Beth Kanter for Socialbrite and this is great for curators just starting out or a refresher for those of you who have been doing this for a while.

 

She tells you why curation is an important tool in your content strategy and gives you some good suggestions on how to do it effectively which I'm going to focus on here. Curation requires time and energy, and Beth's process really works because I'm doing this myself.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

Manage you attention, not just your time

 

**Don't just create a to-do list; lay it out on a daily and weekly schedules, breaking down key tasks of the project into chunks.

 

**Consider the level of concentration and focus that each type of task or chunk requires and schedule accordingly

 

**Establish rituals: Rituals in your work life are valuable. A mindmap offers a lot of good suggestions for rituals

 

**Managing email and other distractions: Turn off notifications that pop up on your computer, iPad or moble.

 

**Just say no - it's important to engage with your community on social networks but you have to find the right balance. When you're curating, it requires focus, it's best to schedule this first, then do your community management, check your email unless something requires your immediate attention. When you have a plan, it makes everything easier.

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.

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, 2014 10:50 AM

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