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. 

 

Playlists: http://docubase.upian.com/playlist/ 

 

The curators: http://docubase.upian.com/curator/ 

 

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.

Thanks! You mean collaborating on Scoop.it or on Flipboard? (it's possible there)

Maybe we can collaborate on a "apps" channel. But I really don't have much time and I wouldn't have the time to write such great insightful comments as you write all the time :( But I'm interested in working with you on a channel.

Curating vs. Collecting on Twitter for the Education Professional

Curating vs. Collecting on Twitter for the Education Professional | Finding Sorting Keeping Curating | Scoop.it

Via Robin Good
Lamccainreed's insight:

 

Silvia Rosenthal Tolisano has an interesting and highly visual post on collecting vs. curating with Twitter, and on the curation potential Twitter has in store for those involved in education.

 

She quotes Mike Fisher writing: "Collecting is what kids do when asked to find resources for a particular topic. Usually, it represents the first 3 or 4 hits on a Google search, without meaning, discernment, or connections.

 

Curating is different. It’s the Critical Thinker’s collection, and involves several nuances (see Figure 1) that separate it as an independent and classroom-worthy task."

 

 

Useful. Resourceful. 7/10

Crystal Renfro, a subject and Faculty Engagement Librarian at Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia, introduces the relevance of content curation to academic librarians beyond the notions generally prescribed by Digital and Data Curation specialists. 

She highlights content curation importance and reason d'etre by explaining the goal it is trying to achieve (helping us finding what is truly relevant) and providing references both to Beth Kanter and to my own work, to help academics better appreciate the benefits of embracing content curation.


A good introduction to a new way of looking at curation for digital archive specialists and academic information librarians.

As a designer, it’s easy to make pretty pictures. Now try making designs that go deeper. “Deeper how?”, you may ask. Certainly we perceive things visually, but the factors that motivate us and help us interpret those designs have more to do with the content. At the intersection of instructional design and visual design are some tips that can help ensure success in learning.

What Great Curators Think Good Curation Is [Video]

OMP Digital's curator insight, January 3, 2013 11:44 AM

This video is to be watched by all interested in curation. As curation and creatively becomes a much in demand skill, how can those content marketers looking for that easy share produce more content in less time? Well this video shall aim to answer that along with other inspiring ideas

IdeaEncore's curator insight, January 8, 2013 3:49 PM

Scott: Very helpful to see the subtlty of variations on curation

 

Robin:This is an oustandingly good video about "curation". After nine months from its first appearance, it undoubtedly deserves a second pass on my newsradar here, as I think this is a clip that, in less than three minutes, can do a good job to explain what curation really is to anyone not familiar with it. 

 

I find this video clip such a marvellous piece of inspiring content that I have decided to post it again, giving the opportunity to you - if you haven't seen it yet - to look at curation with eyes distant light-years from those of the content marketer looking for easy shortcuts to produce more content in less time, - and if you have seen it already - to look at it again and to pause and think about how you are going to take up and make yours some of the inspiring ideas shared in this clip.

 

Asking yourself more questions about how you curate and for what final purpose you do it, can only be a healthy exercise in refining this much in-demand skill.

 

 

To be watched by anyone interested in curation. 8/10

 

Original clip: http://vimeo.com/38524181

 

 

Eric Moran's curator insight, January 15, 2013 10:11 PM
