Stephen Dale's insight:

...social media is an integral part of learning and communicating in the 21st century and beyond and therefore it is an educator’s duty to both model and teach how to use it appropriately and effectively to promote...learning.

Learning By Exploring, Organizing and Curating a Body of Information: Curatr

Robin Good: Curatr, an elearning platform built upon the idea of discovery through the curation and sense-making of existing information, has just released an updated version of its platform which you can check out here: http://www.curatr.co.uk/index2.php 

 

Live demo: http://www.curatr.co.uk/index2.php?view=demo 

 

Curatr allows professional trainers, experts, and teachers, as much as students to organize and curate information for the purpose of learning.

 

What I like very much is the Curatr promotional video, which says lots of true things about education and about the way we should carry it out in the future. The next-button-robot approach to information memorization needs to be replaced with a new approach: learning to understand how learners construct knowledge.

 

Curatr is about the construction of the scaffolding that allows people to learn and to find the resources that should help them best learn what they are interested into. 

 

Promising. Insightful. 8/10

Curate Custom Video Learning Courses with Course Hero

Curate Custom Video Learning Courses with Course Hero | The Social Web | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Course Hero is a platform which allows the creation and delivery of online video courses curated from the best existing published content on that topic.

 

There are already ready-made courses to access or you can submit a topic that you would like to video-curate into a course.

 

"You can learn just about anything from YouTube...if you're willing to dig through millions of videos."

 

 

From Techcrunch: "Luckily, Course Hero has done the work for you, offering coherent classes by hosting collections of the best educational YouTube videos and other content.


The newly launched courses section of the eduTech startup’s site now has classes in entrepreneurship, business plan development, and programming in a variety of languages.

...

By drawing from YouTube and other openly available education, Course Hero plans to set up courses for anything it, or you, can think of.

...

Each course breaks down into roughly 6 chapters of 6 concept YouTube videos, Justin.tv videos, articles, and more. Unlike Udemy‘s one-teacher-per-class approach, Course Hero courses are compiled from content by many teachers.


Rather than put you at the mercy of long-winded professors, Course Hero trims videos and articles down to their most important teachings.

 

Along the way you’ll answer quiz questions, take tests to complete chapters, and face a final exam to finish a course and earn proficiency badges..."
