Robin Good's curator insight, June 18, 2013 10:35 AM



BundlePost is a social curation web app which allows you to easily find relevant posts on the topics of your interest and to auto-schedule their republication on your preferred social media channel with your custom hashtags and Twitter names.


The service has been out there for over a year, but it has recently updated its website and service features.


BundlePost taps into your selected set of RSS feeds and Google Alerts (not for much longer) and aggregates relevant posts according to your theme and keyword specifications so that you can review, edit and modify those that you want to get published.


Scheduling and distribution features allow you to set exactly where and when you want each piece of content to be published.


BundlePost integrates perfectly with HootSuite, allowing you to upload days of ready-to-go scheduled content for any social network in minutes, and with its hashtag system is capable of creating folders for each of your campaigns, clients or accounts that coincide with a specific topic.


"Within each folder you designate the keywords and phrases that you know will be found in the text of the content curated by Bundle Post, as well as what hashtags you want the system to replace them with. You can also identify any words or phrases that will be contained in the text of posts and have Bundle Post automatically replace them with a specific twitter name, making it an active link when posted."


My comment: The perfect tool for social media and content marketers looking for the easiest way to post relevant content to their social media channels automatically and over time. If you are ready for a pretty "Spartan" interface but have a strong need to automate your social publishing needs, this solution may be worth checking out. Outside of my personal doubts on the effectiveness of this approach, the tool delivers tremendous time saving features for those looking exactly for this. You ca have automate FollowFridays. If instead you wonder from were all this extra information noise in your Twitter and social media accounts comes from, you now have another possible suspect.




Free 30-day trial available (no credit card required).

Perceived support from teachers and peers, self-regulation skills, and confidence in the selection and use of technology effectively impacted technology use mainly through strengthening perceived compatibility and usefulness.

And how should we go about investigating what we need to know about? Systematic empirical research can (a) generate a deeper understanding of this phenomenon, (b) provide evidence to support or refute the claims surrounding MOOCs, and (c) help universities and MOOC providers enhance course offerings.

UNESCO Office in Bangkok: Case Studies on Integrating ICT into Teacher Education Curriculum in Asia | CALL | Scoop.it

Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has become an integral part of our daily lives for the last decades. The dramatic adaptation of ICT has in turn called for education reforms at various levels with a view to creating an enabling educational environment for next generations to effectively function in the digital era. Therefore, teachers’ capacity of integrating ICT into their teaching practices plays a critical role in achieving the goals of the education reform.

Dentro de OpenTopic puedes crear uno o más cuadros de mando "Topic". esencialmente muestra las páginas que donde se agregan nuevos contenidos y el contenido entrante de las fuentes que se especifiquen. Puedes saltar de un panel a otro topic con el clic de su ratón.

 

Para curar historias simplemente tienes que seleccionar los que son relevantes para tu público y se les proporciona un módulo de edición para modificar y personalizar el contenido de la historia. En este punto también se puede seleccionar en los (canales) que la historia será publicada y se puede personalizar la historia de manera diferente para cada uno de ellos.

 

Incluso hay una opción que te permite configurar algún tipo de curación automática, dándole la opción de establecer un conjunto de reglas sencillas, que cuando coincide, dará lugar a la publicación de una noticia.

 

OpenTopic te permite conectar a un mayor número de canales posibles, por lo que es fácil enviar de un lugar a tu sitio web, RSS, redes sociales y newsletter.

 

Por último, pero no menos importante, OpenTopic integra un servicio de análisis completo, capaz de informar y dar a conocer los resultados de su trabajo de curación a través de historias y canales de distribución.

Robin Good's curator insight, June 17, 2013 1:14 PM



Videry is a great example of video curation at work.


Videry is a hand-curated collection of over 30 great video clips for web designers.


The beauty and value of this collection, in the context of curation is in the following:


  • The quality of the clips selected

  • A clean, and simple layout - content over looks
    The essence is in the selection made and that's why it needs to stand out.

  • The essential info is upfront - video thumbnails + title + description
    no other distractions.

  • A Pinterest-like simmetrical visual layout that allows easy scanning of the page


Where it could do better:


  • Titles: no personalization for context - titles in the collection are exactly as the originals - the curator here could have improved and contextuaized titles for this collection, while keeping a good reference, visible to everyone, of the original one.

  • Descriptions: these are the original video descriptions. No additions, no opinion, no contextualization. The curator could have written his own descriptions from these in the context of this collection, while leaving the original descriptions as an extra option (since they are all already accessible under the original video location).

  • No visibile authorship for the collection.




P.S.: I think this clean design used in this collection is so effective that I wish there was a service prividing the ability to create curated video collections with such information design elegance.

Robin Good's curator insight, June 23, 2013 5:35 AM


Elizabeth Weaver Engel and Jeff De Cagna are the authors of a small but very useful guide to Content Curation originally written for membership groups, and first published in November 2012.


The guide offers a good introduction to why content curation is so important, how it can help any organization and what are the key things to know about it for anyone who knows little or nothing about it.


From the original PDF guide, entitled "Attention Doesn't Scale: The Role of Content Curation in Membership Associations":


"Content curation provides a potential path to a new type of thought leadership, one that is more suited to a world where information is no longer the scarce resource. Focus is. Meaning is. Wisdom is.


But that type of support will require a signicant shift in our business models.


For decades, associations have been in the business of generating information.


Our challenge now is to transform ourselves into being in the business of sense-making, helping members distinguish what new information is most relevant and integrate that information into their mental categories, and meaning-making, helping them understand the implications of that  new information for their worldviews."


Lots of good tips, references and relevant resources listed. Provides good foundational reference for any serious business reader.


Good intro to content curation. Resourceful. Informative. 8/10


Pass it on.

With almost anyone now able to generate and publish content, finding relevance (signal to noise) is precoccupying knowledge workers everywhere. Sense-making, new media literacy and the ability to understand concepts across a wide range of disciplines are ctitical skills for the content curator in cutting through the noise to find that all important signal. Effective content curation will help us to focus and make sense of our complex and ambiguous world, to understand context and ultimately to make better decisons.

The Flipped Classroom model is changing the ways students learn and teachers teach. When you flip your classroom, you offer your students rich, engaging material to consider at home, and you use class time to help them interact with the ideas. Lecturing during class time is minimized and students have a teacher nearby when they are doing work and most likely to need guidance.
