Content Curation - Best Practices

 

Content curation has become a hot topic in 2012.

 

Corrine Weisgerber, an associate professor at St. Edwards University, has an excellent presentation on content curation.

 

She differentiates content curation from content aggregation--content aggregation can be automated but content curation requires the human touch for finding, evaluating and contextualizing information.

 

Gust MEES: Corinne is from Luxembourg (Europe), my country, don't know Luxembourg? Check out my curation about Luxembourg here: http://www.scoop.it/t/luxembourg-europe

Aggregation Is Not Curation - There Is A Big Difference - SVW

Aggregation Is Not Curation - There Is A Big Difference - SVW | Social Media Optimization &  Search Engine Optimization | Scoop.it

Curation is becoming an increasingly important term and for good reason: the online world is increasingly messy, muddled and full of blind alleys.

Search used to be the best way to navigate online but today it is only one part of an Internet user's dashboard.

 

Finding things is fine if you know what to look for, but search is increasingly less effective in judging the quality of links, or putting those links into a context.

 

So what is curation?

 

Curation is a person or persons, engaged in the act of choosing and presenting things related to a specific topic and context.

"Google Earth was one of the very first pieces of software that I began to create educational resources with.

It has developed so much over the years...."
