Ultimate List of Free Content Creation Tools & Resources

Ultimate List of Free Content Creation Tools & Resources | Emerging Campus | Scoop.it

While other parts of business and marketing are becoming increasingly automated, content creation is still a very manual job.


That being said, there are plenty of tools out there to make creating content much easier.


Below, you'll find a list of 36 fantastic tools and resources to help you research, write, edit, and design content more easily.


(You'll notice there are a lot of design tools in here -- that's because visual content is often the part of the content creation process where people get the most nervous and frustrated. So don't worry, we've got a ton in there for you.)...

Make content creation easier (and more fun) with these 35 free tools and resources from Lindsay Kolowich at HubSpot. I thought I knew all the tools but she's updated the list and you'll find several social media tools you didn't know before. Christmas comes early. Highly recommended! 11/10. ;-)

Mike McCallister's curator insight, December 22, 2016 10:59 AM

I use several of these tools regularly, and can recommend every one of them. I suspect I'll be investigating some of the visual/design options heading into the new year. Use this list to expand your reach in 2017!

Remember though that finding the right tool is important, but how you structure and design interaction with the content is way more important. Taking classroom activities and materials and placing them on a web-based platform and expecting them to work is sure way to disappoint students. You need to think carefully about how the student will engage with the materials and how the materials relate to each other to ensure that your materials don’t just test the students’ knowledge and abilities, but that they guide and enable the student to hypothesise and make and confirm deductions in order to encourage deeper levels of autonomous learning.

Three Ways To Reframe A Problem To Find An Innovative Solution

Three Ways To Reframe A Problem To Find An Innovative Solution | Emerging Campus | Scoop.it

Reframing a problem helps you see it as an opportunity, and Seelig offers three techniques for finding innovative solutions:

1. Rethink The Question

Start by questioning the question you’re asking in the first place, says Seelig. "Your answer is baked into your question," she says.

Before you start brainstorming, Seelig suggests you start "frame-storming": brainstorming around the question you will pose to find solutions. For example, if you’re asking, "How should we plan a birthday party for David?" you’re assuming it’s a party. If you change your question to, "How can we make David’s day memorable?" or "How can we make David’s day special?" you will find different sets of solutions.

Why Aesthetics Matter to Learning

Why Aesthetics Matter to Learning | Emerging Campus | Scoop.it
One obvious way to influence affect is through visual aesthetics, or the appreciation of an appealing design. Thus, the importance of visual design in learning is gaining in stature and will become increasingly important in years to come.

Via EDTECH@UTRGV
more...
Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, May 4, 2015 10:23 AM

Much of this applies to online learning, but aesthetics matter in a brick-and-mortar environment, too. Think about the classroom to which you respond, "Oh! This is nice!" as opposed to the classroom that seems to be losing its battle with clutter. Imagine the impact a confused environment has on a student. Great to have stuff on the wall, but after a while it can become just background and no longer have any meaning. Teachers already work hard to create a valuable and purposeful learning space, so asking them to have a plan for managing the resources and other stuff in the classroom might seem like too much. Except the really good ones are already doing it.
