Scooping it

Scooping it | Scoop.it on the Web | Scoop.it

Scoop.it is a great online curation tool that enables us to share relevant information with students in a visually appealing, easy to use format. ”Creative consumption” according to the folks at Scoop.it. Previously I’ve shared links to websites with students via koodle/wiki/email but Scoop.it enables creators to “scoop” several sites onto one page (or online magazine). It pays to show students the page to pique their interest.

Guillaume Decugis's insight:

Nice review of Scoop.it in an education context.

Gilbert Faure au nom de l'ASSIM's comment, September 8, 2013 3:45 AM
it helps sharing relevant information with students who have less time than teachers to look for information. It allows those are curious enough to go further in a topic with the help of others. It may awaken those who have a "research" profile to go further into the information frontier.

How TO Host A Scoopit Newsletter / Landingpage FREE on Google Drive

How TO Host A Scoopit Newsletter / Landingpage FREE on Google Drive | Scoop.it on the Web | Scoop.it

Found A Cool Use for Scoop.it's new Newsletter feature. It is easy to create a content landing page and host it free with Google Drive. 

Here's How...

1. Create a newsletter using the Manage > Create A Newsletter


2. Download as a Zip file. Open the Zip file.


3. Upload the HTML file to your Google drive into a public folder.


4. Click on the HTML file. A window pops up, click on OPEN in lower right corner. 


5. Click on preview. Copy the URL that appears in the browser window:

https://googledrive.com/host/0B0eG3a8zValDQjl6aldwQlJMNDg/email%203.html 

Next figuring out how to add a Call To Action and subscription code.  BTW, Unbounce charges $700 a year to host landing pages :). 


Also works on DropBox. 

The Free Alternative
The interesting question is could you create a web marketing business with NO money for websites or blogs? Yes is the answer to that question. By using free tools such as Google Drive, Scoop.it and Blogger or WordPress you could create a business without paying anything to web development. 

You might find that business is limited in scale, but so what. Your cost is  limited to your sweat equity to create a revenue stream and THEN buy the website improvements you need to go to the next level. I just build a MagentoGo store (Story of Cancer Store: http://storyofcancer.gostorego.com/ ) and the same thing is ALMOST true for Ecom.


Between Storify, Volusion and Magento you can create a store for sweat equity + $500 (give or take). My little store has already made $130 inside of its first month so well on its way to paying for its serving costs. 

The ultimate lesson of crowdfunding and crowdsourcing is DO NOTHING until it is worth the investment to do so :).

The Five Deadly Personal-Branding Illusions

Ally Greer's curator insight, June 19, 2013 12:54 AM

I absolutely love this post by Liz Ryan!


First off, I've never heard the concept of a personal brand explained so well:

People protest "Oh, I don't have a personal brand, and I don't want one" but that's like saying "I choose not to cast a shadow when I walk in the sun."


A few weeks ago, I had this exact conversation with my mom; she thought it was crazy that I referred to my online presence as my "brand," but I told her that we all have our own version of our personal brand, a concept that was difficult for her to understand. The way Liz Ryan puts it here though, explains the term personal brand as just another way of saying "reputation" or "self-description."


It's true, your personal brand is just a fancy way of quantifying the way people see and perceive you, based upon the way you present yourself physically, intellectually, emotionally, digitally, etc.


Here, Ryan also describes five common ways people refer to their "personal brand" that are simply inaccurate. One example of this is "tasks." The tasks that you perform on a daily basis are not your personal brand. Your skills (which help you accomplish your tasks), are a component of your personal brand, but don't just leave it at that! Another example - one that I personally can't stand - is "zombie language." Per Ryan, Zombie Language is often manifested in the form of buzzword-enhanced one-liners that professionals use to describe themselves (See: goal-focused social media strategist, or results-driven PR professional). If you use those or any of the other mentioned "strategies" to define your personal brand, have a look at this piece and get restructuring!
