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

Great Content Curation Models: E-learning Examples by David Anderson | Tech happens! | Scoop.it

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

 

ElearningExamples 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

This article covers the content of the seminar that, today, December 6, 2011, I present at the Center for Research and Interdisciplinarity (CRI) in Paris, with the title: “Digital tools to create a knowledge ecosystem for learning and research”. The seminar introduces a global perspective on learning processes in order to integrate different webtools in a coherent and practical Personal Learning Environment (PLE). I will use my own PLE to illustrate the practical role that a diverse array of webtools play in my learning process. Below you can find the presentation, videos and links to be used in the seminar.
