Each week we will concentrate on a brand-new subject and will certainly have brand-new understanding materials, a live talk, conversations, and a small project. You may complete the tasks for each week-- or simply those that interest you most or finest suit your routine.

Social Media Curation Is Not Just Sharing Bookmarks: An Introductory Guide [Video]
Michael Britt's comment, Today, 9:11 AM
Here's one thing that I think is not addressed well in this video or indeed on other resources that address curation: the Explain part of her FACETS acronym. I agree that ideally the curator should explain why any particular item of the collection is included in the curation, but also I think it's important to explain how one item relates to another. I don't see how this can be done with any of the curation tools I have seen. How can the curator effectively explain to the visitor what the relationship is between different items in the collection in a way that's easy for the visitor to follow? Right now it seems to me that the curator would have to say in his/her notes, "This item is similar to the one I added to the collection back in January....take a look at...go back to..." etc. That's awkward and clumsy. Any solutions to this?
