I recently stumbled onto this short video tutorial (1':57") which was created to explain to students how to take effective notes during a lesson or lecture.
Right upon my first play through it, I immediately felt that the steps suggested in it, could be also very useful for anyone just starting out with content curation and wanting to follow some kind of formal sequence to achieve good results.
The Cornell Notes video tutorial illustrates in fact in less than two minutes how to:
1) collect notes,
2) extract key concepts from them and
3) synthesize the essence of it in a presentable and readable format.
If you are just starting out with content curation, this can be quite useful.
Useful. Simple. 8/10
