Rapid and Effective Web-Based List-Creation with Liiist | Curation Tools for Educators | Scoop.it


Robin Good: Liiist, formerly GetVega, is a web-based list creation tool, that facilitates the assembly and orderly collection of website pages, tools or products.

 

Liiist makes simplicity and ease-of-use two of its key strengths and adding new items to a list is extremely easy and straightforward. When using the bookmarklet you have lots of options in choosing exactly what you want to capture from the web page you are on. Whether via the available bookmarklet or by manual addition, adding new items in Liiist is as easy as it can get and you can easily choose which images to use, replace it with one of your own or use a specific video in its place.

 

Liiist allows for "public" and "private" collections, the ability to add contributors and three different view modalities to browse effectively any list type.

From the official site: "Archify captures a screenshot and the full text of every page you see, together with all the updates on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.


You can save your archive in a private folder within your Gmail, or simply look it up on your own search page."

 

From the TNW review: "Archify is a browser plugin which, once installed, saves everything that you browse online – including every update from you and your friends on your social streams.


If you search for something on Google, a little overlay will appear telling you that there are also results in Archify.


Archify is like your own personal browsing archive. In addition to indexing all the content you’ve viewed, Archify also takes a screenshot of each page you visit, allowing you to not only find content, but view it exactly the way it looked on the day you visited the page."

Mooi gedaan. The New York Times heeft zijn eigen knipseldienst die het eenvoudig maakt foto's quotes en andere inhoud te bundelen. Een persoonlijke knipselkrant, een eigen plakboek, een lokale Pinterest. Zie bijvoorbeeld een verzameling van recensies van restaurants.

Eric Moran's curator insight, February 13, 2013 3:50 PM

Common misconception about content curation is that everything is automated . This article does a great job explaining the human element involved in curating content. It also shares some bad habits people pick up from the unintentional convenience of automated tools.

Information is ubiquitous, finding individuals with similar interests is the basis of creating a personal learning network.  Content curation is one way of adding value to your network using Harold Jarche's Seek, Sense, Share model.  It would be good to see the current Education framework  embrace content curation and this post is a good place to start

Beth, thanks for posting! What we have out at the moment is a pretty stripped down beta. We are adding features continuously and encourage users to get in touch to let us know what they would like to see.

Beth, when you say 'new beginners tool' what do you mean? I use diigo as it gives me so many capacities, like highlight and notes and very good ways for sharing. For good beginner tool you mean for those new to curation and/or social bookmarking?
