Comic book geeks: Marvel loves you. But it wants to expand its social circle. Don't worry. Whether it's debuting Wolverine's Japanese adventures or adding adaptive sound to your reading experience, the company will always hold you diehards dear. But at this year’s SXSW Interactive festival, Marvel unveiled five digital initiatives to woo non-fans, too.

Content Curation: 7 Ways To Curate Other People’s Content By Heidi Cohen | Transmedia Storytelling for Business | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article by Heidi Cohen:

"Content curation involves using the  unique taste and understanding of their your target audience that only people can provide to create new and value added content. The curator carefully selects from the mass of content available and presents it in an easy to consume format. This process highlights other people’s content as well as your organization’s older content in the context of your brand to support your marketing and business objectives.

Here are seven ways to curate other people’s content presenting the information in a way that highlights your brand and point of view to attract your audience.
1) Offer link love.
2) Collect a “Best of List”.
3) Round up posts.
4) Research review.
5) Create a Top 10 List.
6) Add commentary to someone else’s column.

Publishers' latest digital products may deserve a category of their own.

Via Ana Cristina Pratas

Lou Salza's curator insight, March 6, 2013 12:14 PM

"Textbook publishers argue that their newest digital products shouldn't even be called "textbooks." They're really software programs built to deliver a mix of text, videos, and homework assignments. But delivering them is just the beginning. No old-school textbook was able to be customized for each student in the classroom. The books never graded the homework. And while they contain sample exam questions, they couldn't administer the test themselves.

One publisher calls its products "personalized learning experiences," another "courseware," and one insists on using its own brand name, "MindTap." For now, this new product could be called "the object formerly known as the textbook.

"In the early days of TV, the first things you saw on TV were radio shows, and only over time did the next format evolve for that medium," says Don Kilburn, chief executive of Pearson Learning Solutions. "I think we're at that stage right now" with textbooks, he says."

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, March 5, 2013 2:13 AM
  • Open educational resources made a dramatic appearance with the 2002 debut of MIT's Open Courseware initiative.
  • In the roughly 10 years since, OERs have not noticeably disrupted the traditional business model of higher education or affected daily teaching approaches at most institutions.
  • Four major hurdles seem the likeliest hindrances to adoption of OERs: discoverability, quality control, bridging the last mile, and acquisition.
  • OERs could unify and advance the essentially disconnected developments in digital textbooks and MOOCs by establishing a global enterprise learning content management system.

And it actually won the Oscar!

 

While the amount of footage the filmmaker needed to make with his iPhone was small in terms of the overall, I think this sends a number of signals. 1 -  consumer tech is getting closer and closer to industry standards and used in the right way can be effective; and 2 - this is another example of compelling content created with a DIY ethic.

 

I look forward to seeing more examples of where filmmaking can evolve.
