Content Strategy Trends to Watch in 2013: Adaptive Web Design | M-learning, E-Learning, and Technical Communications | Scoop.it
Danielle M. Villegass insight:

Being that I'm following my path of being a content strategist professionally, this article hits the nail on the head about what content strategists do and what some important trends are in the next year. 

 

And yes, I wish I could be more like those cool characters in the Matrix. ;-)

The secret recipe for a great content strategy

The secret recipe for a great content strategy | M-learning, E-Learning, and Technical Communications | Scoop.it

Good content is a big, juicy burger you're serving to your audiences, not some watery alphabet soup with a tired sales message. Here's the secret to a successful strategy.

Danielle M. Villegass insight:

I like the analogy used here that the right ingredients can lead to success with content strategy. Overall, this is true. But to take the analogy a step further, while anyone can learn to cook well with the right tools and ingredients, it still takes a little bit of extra talent to pull off the best of the best. That's part of what separates us Iron Chef wannabes from the real deal. It's not that it can't be done, but it take continual training and practice to get it right until it becomes a natural, instinctive thing to do. 

 

So, start your training now! Get some practice in so you can be in the higher echelons of content strategy!

Danielle M. Villegass insight:

When I first read this article, I thought, "This is EXCELLENT! This is truly what mobile strategy is all about." Once I saw that @VisualRinse (aka Chad Udell) wrote the article, I realized, "No wonder this was so good!" Chad wrote the book, "Learning Everywhere", last year, and it's great reading. So, he knows what he's talking about! 

 

This article isn't specifically for e-learning/m-learning either. It truly puts into perspective what mobile is truly about and the criteria that companies need to move forward in thinking about creating mobile content.

"Should I just convert my existing content, platforms or applications to mobile? " --No. Probably not. Making eLearning mobile accessible probably doesn't help your target audience - it is not really mLearning.

Good point about noting who the author is. I added that info, since that is what drew me to the article to start with.
