Great Content Curation Models: E-learning Examples by David Anderson

Great Content Curation Models: E-learning Examples by David Anderson | Social e-learning network | Scoop.it

If you are looking for inspiration when it comes to content curation, here is a great example at work.

 

Elearning Examples is a curated collection of "examples" from the real world of online communications in the areas of "multimedia journalism", "infographics" and "html5" among others.

For each one of these categories the author has written and edited a specific information card containing relevant information, images and links to the work being referenced.

 

The design of the site and the quality of the work "examples" being showcased make this a good example of what good "content curation" is. 

 

Clearly, the work produced by this site, produces no noise or regurgitation of information, but rather offers a better way to make sense and discover the communication areas being curated on the site.

 

Thanks to David Anderson, an e-learning designer & community manager at Articulate for having created this excellent curated set of galleries.

 

Inspiring. 9/10

Why Human Filters are the Future of the Web

Why Human Filters are the Future of the Web | Social e-learning network | Scoop.it

Karyn Campbell wrote this piece for Sparksheet - Great Observations and so true!

 

Intro:

 

"Before news aggregators, content curators, and Google’s omnipotent algorithm, the world’s information was sorted by real human beings."

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

It comes down to trust

 

The web has offered us incredible options for how we buy products, talk to our friends, or experience media. Remember that adage “quality over quantity”? We can take that phrase literally online – quantity won’t go away; quality will just sit atop.

 

Sometimes we want someone to tell us, consistently, what’s true and what’s good. No wonder YouTube just relaunched its music page, enlisting writers for Vice, Spin and other major vloggers to curate its featured content.

 

**As Steve Jobs more radically put it, “It’s not the consumers’ job to know what they want.”

 

It comes down to trust. Because we are all so well trained in the art of branding, arguably at the expense of crafting things worthy of distribution,

 

**it becomes hard to trust the advice of a Wild West web.

 

Still, we’ll continue to take the word of our favourite industry insider, celebrity or uncle.

 

**Likewise, the smartest companies in this space will calibrate expertise with automation, math with emotion.

 

**Whether she’s a kid writing code or a poet in-the-making, look for the next generation Steve Jobs to carry on building, hiring, and perfecting these filters.

 

Absolutely!

It is good to hear how students feel and for sure teachers need to adapt their approach...
