Make Your eLearning Content Addictive - eLearning Industry | literacy in the digital world | Scoop.it
Make learners crave your eLearning content by using these four dopamine triggers to make your eLearning content addictive.

 

 

We’re all on crack.

No, we’re all not walking around smoking cocaine. But we are all dopamine junkies and our modern-day “crack” is information. Specifically: digital information.

Don’t believe me? When was the last time you went to do a quick Google search on a particular topic and an hour later found yourself reading about something completely different from the original subject matter of your search because you kept linking to different sites? Or, you planned to just check in on Facebook for a few minutes before bed and two hours later you were finally powering down your computer? Or, you just couldn’t stop scanning your Twitter feed?

I thought so.

Robin Good's curator insight, April 26, 2014 2:04 PM



Content curation can be of help to teachers and educators interested in guiding students in learning and appreciating the importance of active digital citizenship.


Jane Schmude, an Australian education graduate and a passionate teacher-librarian, outlines the reasons for such importance while providing also a good 5-minute visual introduction to Pearltrees as an ideal curation tool to carry out this type of project.


Useful intro for teachers, educators and librarians interested to learn more about the opportunities offered by curation.

11 best practices for more effective content curation | @HeinzMarketing | #TheMarketingTechAlert

11 best practices for more effective content curation | @HeinzMarketing | #TheMarketingTechAlert | literacy in the digital world | Scoop.it

Basic/ Digest...

 

1. Be intentional about your themes & topics
Stay reasonably focused on a small handful of themes, but make sure the body of work reflects the human element as well.

2. Pull from a consistent set of sources (to save you time)
You’ll likely encounter good content from all over the place, but identify a core set of sources you can count on for both consistently good content as well as a variety of sources of similarly-themed content.

3. Use an automated queuing and distribution system

4. Always give credit back to the publisher

5. Post across channels to increase reach and awareness growth

6. 3-4 curated posts a day is fine
Think of social media as akin to driving by a house at 35 miles an hour and trying to throw a newspaper into the mailbox. Sometimes it’ll get in, most of the time it won’t. You’ll need to play the numbers game a bit so that a small percentage of our curated content reaches and impacts your intended audience.

7. Actively curate 2-3 times a week max

8. Make instant curation one-click easy from your browser

9. Use team tools to increase contributions
Buffer, HootSuite, GaggleAMP and other tools make it easy for teammates to suggest their own curation recommendations. Great way to get others involved and cut down the time required from you to curate everything yourself.

10. Spread out posts from the same consistently-good sources
There are a handful of blogs and sources I read on a regular basis that consistently have great stuff. And when I curate content only 1-2 times a week, it would be easy to queue up content from one source all in a row. Instead, try to space it out a bit. Spacing adds to the perceived comprehensiveness and reach/value of your overall curated body of work.

11. Prioritize content from partners and prospects

Some decent rules for the road, but don't be too reliant on automating curation: part of the value is the human touch associated parsing, delivery and collection of theme-related content.

Go out of your way to drive traffic back to the source! Have multiple links back to the source, and curate only that content that you admire and want to promote. Driving traffic and providing validation helps the source. One more thing: I'd never claim Google authorship, and you shouldn't either. If you were writing a piece that used a third party as a supporting source, then footnote. But do not claim Authorship!

How to Speed Up Your Content Curation Process | Social Media Examiner | #TheMarketingTechAlert | literacy in the digital world | Scoop.it
Make content curation faster and easier by combining Feedly and IFTTT to become the go-to expert in your niche and provide more value to your clients.

 

Basic/ Digest...

 

#1: Use Feedly to Find Articles

Feedly is an awesome tool for finding timely articles on topics you want to share. On Feedly, you can find content and organize it by categories.

 

#2: Use IFTTT (If This Then That) to Collect Feedly Articles

IFTTT (If This Then That) is one of the most useful tools I’ve come across on the web. It shaves hours off of research time by automating simple tasks.

In order to automate tasks, you create what’s called a recipe. For example, now that you’re set up on Feedly, you can create a recipe that sends new articles to a Google spreadsheet—without you doing a thing!

 

#3: Choose and Curate Content

Use the spreadsheet to choose which articles are most relevant to your audience. Once you whittle down the articles to ones that are share-worthy, I suggest writing a status update you can schedule on Twitter, Google+ or LinkedIn. (I usually write the status update in the Title cell to keep track of it.)

Honestly, there's no real way to speed up the process other than culling through articles and selecting the best of the best. Once you have your sources identified, it's then all about the knowledge you bring to the table to select and curate.
