Why Content Curation Should be in Your Skillset

Jay Cross

An example: How Jay Cross Curates Content. Here’s an example of a no-cost, one-person curation project. The basic process I followed is the standard for curation. The initial attempt to offer the curated news as RSS feeds and on blogs bombed.

Social Media: An Interview

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I started using ICQ ( [link] ) for example in 1997 (My ICQ number: 1287181) well before it was acquired by AOL. But probably the definitive date would be when I wrote An Introduction to RSS for Educational Designers in 2002 ( [link] ). I have always viewed RSS as the prototypical social media technology. And RSS has been the technology that, for me, has formed the basis of things like the Personal Learning Environment (PLE) and my gRSShopper content syndication application.

Reframing the news

Doc Searls

Alas, Twitter posts tend to be snow on the water, flowing to near-oblivion and lacking syndication through RSS —though there are hacks.). Dave created RSS — Really Simple Syndication — as we know it today , and got The New York Times and other publications (including many papers and nearly all Web publishers) to adopt it as well. Today a search for “RSS” on Google brings up over two billion results. For RSS it’s syndication.

Connective Knowledge and Open Resources

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

It was intended very deliberately to be an example of the theory we had formed over the previous four years, and not simply a place to talk about it. We had about 170 blogs created to support the course, and we aggregated these using RSS – content syndication supporting online learning. Sometimes this is necessary, if for example you are creating a MOOC in a new subject area or new language. Take transportation, for example. It’s a two-step process.

The Language of Success

Kevin Wheeler

For example, CEOs instinctively move toward the action that will maximize profits and minimize costs or expenses. For example, I might hear a recruiter say, “I felt that the extra time spent with that candidate was worth it because they will now say nicer things about us to other potential candidates.” They focus on improving business processes and finding ways to cut costs. What would an absolutely first rate, 100% “defect free” recruiting process look like?

E-Learning Generations

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

( version française ) In recent years I have been working on two major concepts:first, the connectivist theory of online learning, which views learning as anetwork process; and second, the massive open online course, or MOOC, which isan instantiation of that process. Content could be created in novel ways - the 'mail merge'program, for example, would allow you to print the same letter multiple times,but each with a different name and address drawn from a database.

Is It Time To Let Feedburner Burn?

Beth Kanter

I’ve been using Feedburner for my blog RSS Feeds since 2005! It is time to self-host your RSS feed many people wondered? Rumors that Google will close Feedburner are circulating again, but this time there is an option for an RSS hosting service, although not free. 1) Update your web site’s RSS autodiscovery tags to point to your native blog’s feed. This means that new subscribers always follow a feed on your domain, not your RSS provider’s platform.

Activating Latent Knowledge Capacity

George Siemens

The one draw back to networked learning is that while we have managed to advance conversation on the fragmentation of learning so that it is not a cohesive whole created solely by the instructor, we have not yet advanced the process of centring or stitching together fragmented parts into cohesive wholes for individuals. Between flickr, del.icio.us, blogs, RSS readers, and wikis, we were living the distributed, networked, learning dream.

Content Curation Primer

Content curation is the process of sorting through the vast amounts of content on the web and presenting it in a meaningful and organized way around a specific theme. For example, on Facebook the average user creates 90 pieces of content each month. Photo by Stuck in Customs.

Driving Productivity Might Revolutionize HR or Kill It

Kevin Wheeler

Have you invested in systems, technology and process improvements to lower costs and improve the speed to hire, develop, retain or engage your employees? The evidence shows that increases in productivity significantly lag the investment in tools and process improvements. It’s only after significant time that we begin to find new and innovative ways to use the tools and adjust our processes accordingly. An example is the introduction of the typewriter.

MOOCs and the OPAL Quality Clearinghouse

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

A series of MOOCs have been hosted by various organizations since (please see [link] for examples). A number of MOOCs have used gRSShopper, an application that harvests RSS feeds created by participant platforms, organizes the material, and redistributes it as a daily email newsletter and RSS feed. Is there any current indication of a quality concept or process? For example: - the course participant list is closed, and not shared with anyone.

IMS, for example, supports itself with amembership system.

For example, - CC-by: that requires that the person who usesthe content attribute the content to whomever wrote it in the first place.

What blogging was

David Weinberger

For example, the blogosphere (remember when that was word?) Amateurs could not produce material as good as professionals because professionals have gone through some controlled process to gain that status. But blogs were designed to mix it up with readers and other bloggers: permalinks were invented for this very purpose, as were comment sections, RSS feeds, etc. At a recent Fellows Hour at the Berkman Center the topic was something like “Whatever happened to blogging?,”

The Rise of MOOCs

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I've been working with aggregators since the beginning of RSS and of course have been influenced here by the work of people like Dave Winer and Aaron Swartz, among many others. The content could be very different - the AI course, for example, could have opted for very different content, or it can get away (as it did) with quickly-created hand-drawn videos and lessons.

Creating the Connectivist Course

Rather, it is to engage in a process of creation and sharing. Sure, there are primitive elements – the component of a connection, for example – but you move very quickly into a realm where any articulation of the theory, any abstraction of the principles, distorts it. We collected RSS feeds from these and aggregated them into a single thread, which became the course newsletter.

Getting More Value from Your Social Media

Kevin Wheeler

Before social media will become a mature process for recruiting, we need to build appropriate strategies and measurements to gauge its success. But, to make this a legal and effective process you need to provide hiring managers with some education on how to effectively use social media. Provide them with guidelines, work with your legal department to build an agreed upon process for communication.
