15+ Ways to Create New Content from Old Content | Kim Garst

15+ Ways to Create New Content from Old Content | Kim Garst | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

As a busy business owner, you likely don’t have time to create new content at the rate at which your audience demands it. Yet, with content marketing now being the #1 driver of search rankings, you can’t afford not to be constantly publishing new content.


Fortunately, there are ways you can take your existing content and feed it to the content marketing beast. With a little bit of elbow grease and some creativity, you can edit and re-use what you already have, and turn it into something your audience can’t get enough of!...

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, January 9, 2015 10:22 AM

This is what most content creators will do, recycle old content to produce new content from an older content that has been tweaked and modified. As an an active blogger, I do the same with great effect. The implications for educationists lies in their ability to re-visit old posts after a lapse of some time whereby they can tweak and retouch observations according to what they have done in class. It always makes sense to re-visit old content and see how this content can be made more relevant to existing trends. While recycling might be achieved through re-posting of content as it is, a more pro-active approach would be to consider changing the title, adding more content and in addition, making necessary changes and corrections to make 'Old content' more in line with the latest in the industry. No doubt it might be difficult for content creators to continue producing good content throughout, so it makes sense to try recycling older content.

Commentaire intéresssant à propos de la curation.

Ivo Nový's curator insight, December 19, 2014 9:46 AM
Guillaume Decugis's insight:

When we started working on Scoop.it, we had a lot of questions on why we even needed tools for content curation. Some were questioning the purpose or the effectiveness of curation, others were convinced it was a valuable practice but challenged the need for a tool. "I don't need a tool to tweet links, right?" or what Julia McCoy refers to as Myth #10 in that great post. 


She does a great job debunking 12 misconceptions which are still quite common about content curation but which luckily are starting to die as content curation delivers more and more results and thanks to educational content like hers.

donhornsby's curator insight, December 20, 2014 7:55 AM

(From the article): Myth #7: You Aren’t a Thought Leader If You Use Third Party Content. Truthfully, I can see why digital marketers would initially think this. When I first heard of curating content, I thought the same thing. However, I quickly learned that this could not be further from the truth. Curating third party content actually does make you a thought leader for several reasons:

 

You show honesty: you show your audience that sometimes your influencers can write something or present something better than you. You can’t always be the best at everything, and that is OK.You can actually connect with said influencer by mentioning them on Twitter when you link to their article or content piece and get them to potentially follow you, thus building a very valuable connection.You build credibility with that third party source, and possibly attract more third parties that want to share the content that you create.Curating influencer content helps build your brand, which can lead to gaining a new audience that respects your thoughts.

As you can see, curating content does not make you take a backseat. It is an opportunity to build credibility with both your audience and your influencers.

There is a variety of opinions in the media these days regarding online learning. Depending on what you read, online education can appear to be either a cure-all or cancer.
Alfredo Corell's insight:

1) Online learning is here to stay. 

2) There is no significant difference in learning outcomes.

3) Online learning is widespread.

4) There is no single form of online learning. 

5) MOOCs are not an example of high-quality online learning.

6) Online learning is well-suited to adult learners, but not necessarily traditional-aged students.

7) “Institutional” cost savings from going online are less than is often acknowledged.

8) Online learning could soon become the norm for “post-traditional” and graduate students who cannot afford the opportunity cost of traditional programs.

Project-Based Learning Through a Maker's Lens - Edutopia | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

"The rise of the Maker has been one of the most exciting educational trends of the past few years. A Maker is an individual who communicates, collaborates, tinkers, fixes, breaks, rebuilds, and constructs projects for the world around him or her. A Maker, re-cast into a classroom, has a name that we all love: a learner. A Maker, just like a true learner, values the process of making as much as the product. In the classroom, the act of Making is an avenue for a teacher to unlock the learning potential of her or his students in a way that represents many of the best practices of educational pedagogy. A Makerspace classroom has the potential to create life-long learners through exciting, real-world projects."
