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

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

Day 10 #30DC13: Organize the Web with Curation Tools | EVSC ICATS | Information Literacy | Scoop.it
One of the great things about living in the Digital Age is that we all have instant access to incredible amounts of information at any time. That is also one of the challenges of our time. Managing digital information has been likened to drinking from a firehose. If we are to make sense of the information we find, we need to learn to curate it into manageable collections that help us make meaning. This skill is not only essential to us personally, we also need help our students by curating information for them and by teaching them how to do so on their own. There are dozens of great tools for curating web content, and each one has its own features. This means that some curation tools work well in one situation, while others work well for a different purpose or audience. Just as a master carpenter wouldn't have just one plane or screwdriver, teachers need to have multiple curation tools to help fit the many digital tasks they take on. I personally wouldn't want to have to live without

The Find, Fill, Follow, Focus, and Frame Curation Skills | Information Literacy | Scoop.it
Buffer I came across a good post from JuastAdandAk the other day. it covers many of the the things we talk about on the blog and podcast. What I really liked though is their break down of the five core steps of curation (also the graphic is great as well) 1. Find : Track other digital curators to emulate / learn from. I had a call the other day with someone asking if we had a what I consider a listening platform in our tool. We don’t and we haven’t built on for 2 simple reasons. It’s easy (beyond easy) …
