A Great Platform for Curating and Publishing On Any Topic: RebelMouse

A Great Platform for Curating and Publishing On Any Topic: RebelMouse | IT and learning | Scoop.it

Robin Good's insight:

 

 

RebelMouse may be one of the best free tools out there to do news, social or content curation for your personal brand, company or organization.

 

Beneath the appearance of a social media aggregation app, lies a super-powerful curation and publishing infrastructure which allows you to aggregate and monitor any social media stream from Facebook to Instagram and Pinterest, and lets you import RSS feeds and add specific filters to get exactly what you want.

 

While most reviewers will see RebelMouse as a tool to "quickly assemble a Web page populated with links from your Facebook and Twitter streams, using a slick graphical presentation that looks quite a bit like Pinterest" (source: HuffPo), I think this social aggregation and publishing has indeed a lot more to offer and it has all of the required features to become a great content curation and publishing solution.

 

With RebelMouse you can do seven key things. You can:

 

pick any content you find on the web and you can curate it and post to your rebelMouse site by using the freely available bookmarklet

aggregate any number of Facebook and Twitter streams, including specific searches, users and hashtags, as well as any RSS feed you want.

filter this content according to your own rules

auto-publish any of this content, or 

set individual sources to be manually "curated" by you.  

"embed" your RebelMouse generated site on your website or "map" (by paying a small fee) your own domain to it.

create multiple sub-pages with RebelMouse and a dedicated navigation system that can point also to your own existing web properties. Each of these sub-sites can be customized to focus on a specific topic or event.

 

On the design and "look and feel" front, RebelMouse provides a set of alternative templates, but the look is basically the same across the board with variants relating to the font styles and colors.

 

It is also true that you can personalize your RebelMouse site and alter the design however you'd like with the custom CSS option that is already available.

 

But it is certain, that providing a set of advanced, professional-looking templates, where users could for examples decide manually the size of certain tiles, would provide enormous added value to users who would see RebelMouse as a possible direct gateway to publishing their own site.

For $9.99/month you can also "map" your RebelMouse pages to your own domain, so that your RebelMouse content stays on your own site.

In addition you can also further customize the RebelMouse page look, by being able to remove the "Following" and "Featured" modules from your pages.

RebelMouse was born to build a social media hub, but it does have strong aggregation, filtering and curation capabilities. SEO-wise it is not a great choice, but also Scoop.it has quite a few limits on this front. <br><br>Rebelmouse doesn't offer all of the extras Scoop.it has, from scheduling, to sharing to an extended number of social networks, to integration with newsletter and to the backend dashboard. <br><br>Scoop.it has also a better, cleaner and more legible format, that better lends itself to more in-depth reading than just browsing titles, images and tweets.
Stan Smith's comment, November 12, 2013 9:22 AM
While I still use RebelMouse I have disconnected all inbound links because it posts it wacky and I was always having to go back and edit stuff. Now that I post stuff manually with their applet it isn't so bad. I still prefer Scoop.it though.

I use Rebelmouse for a while now, and I like it as a complementary tool to other Social Media tools. You can have a look at it on https://www.rebelmouse.com/Terheck/

This Is Your Brain On Games - InformED | IT and learning | Scoop.it

“Action video games have a number of ingredients that are actually really powerful for brain plasticity, learning, attention, and vision,” says brain scientist Daphne Bavelier in her TED Talk on the subject.

Findings like Bavelier’s have been cropping up over the last few years, forcing us to reevaluate our firmly held beliefs. Many educators now use video games in formal learning settings, and others are teaming up with members of the gaming industry to design programs that target specific learning goals. The controversy is ebbing, and this year neuroscientists have discovered something that may end the discussion once and for all:

Video games actually make the brain bigger.

Gamification in theory and action: A survey

Abstract

Gamification has drawn the attention of academics, practitioners and business professionals in domains as diverse as education, information studies, human–computer interaction, and health. As yet, the term remains mired in diverse meanings and contradictory uses, while the concept faces division on its academic worth, underdeveloped theoretical foundations, and a dearth of standardized guidelines for application. Despite widespread commentary on its merits and shortcomings, little empirical work has sought to validate gamification as a meaningful concept and provide evidence of its effectiveness as a tool for motivating and engaging users in non-entertainment contexts. Moreover, no work to date has surveyed gamification as a field of study from a human–computer studies perspective. In this paper, we present a systematic survey on the use of gamification in published theoretical reviews and research papers involving interactive systems and human participants. We outline current theoretical understandings of gamification and draw comparisons to related approaches, including alternate reality games (ARGs), games with a purpose (GWAPs), and gameful design. We present a multidisciplinary review of gamification in action, focusing on empirical findings related to purpose and context, design of systems, approaches and techniques, and user impact. Findings from the survey show that a standard conceptualization of gamification is emerging against a growing backdrop of empirical participants-based research. However, definitional subjectivity, diverse or unstated theoretical foundations, incongruities among empirical findings, and inadequate experimental design remain matters of concern. We discuss how gamification may to be more usefully presented as a subset of a larger effort to improve the user experience of interactive systems through gameful design. We end by suggesting points of departure for continued empirical investigations of gamified practice and its effects.
