Shiban Kak's curator insight, February 2, 2015 3:43 AM

Design should be the basis of Engineering education and bringing in the design focus makes the students understand what problem solving is, what knowledge application within the bounds of constraints is and finally what is meant by the trade off to make an optimal decision. Many of us in the technical education must use the science and philosophy of design to make students learn what engineering is about. Engineers must be creative and generate products & services that benefits humanity and makes life more enjoyable for all but not at the cost of environment as that places the burden of my today's solution on the children's of tomorrow.

I think the inevitable trend is that digital content has to be more personal and customised, and content creators and providers have to be more strategic and targeted in their marketing.
Kanti Kumar's curator insight, February 1, 2015 8:09 AM

This article compiles the view of content marketing experts in the private sector. Some of these trends will apply to non-profits as well, especially targeted content and integrated digital channels. But there will be some other important trends, namely curation of content and increased engagement with audience, both of which will help non-profits in raising awareness about the issues on which they are working. What other trends do you foresee for non-profits?
