This course will become read-only in the near future. Tell us at if that is a problem.

Task: Share, and Share Alike

Share your Curated Content.

Check out these resources on the application of content curation.

Jennifer Moss at Design.Reflect has shared 5 Ways to Use Content Curation with Students

Andy Dickinson has curated an introduction to Curation and Aggregation

Robin Good explores the intersection of marketing and curating content

Remember to Share the glory by giving credit to original content producers.

You have settled on a topic, vetted sources, explored curation tools, and produced commentaries that share your thoughts and editorial focus in the previous tasks. You now have a deliverable product that you can share links to and promote. However, you are not finished. Curation is an ongoing process. Keep tracking down new content and sharing your thoughts on it.  Share a link to your curated content below, and take a moment to also share any thoughts you have about content curation or the process of starting a curated list.

    This is the flipboard magazine for the collaborative creative writing blog I write together with my friend. Since it's written in our own language (Italian) and it is aimed at readers coming from our country, the content of the curated magazine too is mostly italian. Here's the link to the blog too:

    I'm always finding sites I can see would be useful and enjoy other people using my pearltrees. I'm hoping to encourage my colleagues to team up too.

    I really enjoyed this course. I have a much better plan now for curating the vast amounts of information that I come across in my digital journeys.

    Here is what I created as I worked through this course: I have much to add to this board, but I now understand that curation is an ongoing journey!

    Thanks for checking it out!

    Very useful course. I've always been interested in tools to capture and gather information about different topics and I've learnt that this is called curation. I really liked most of the lessons since they gave me some insights about what I was doing and how to properly addressed the process of curation. I also liked reviewing all the tools that are already available and I've seen that everyday seems to bring new tools (so this is a really hot topic).

    Right now I've already started the process of curating information about the Tragedy of the Commons. I've decided to stop using Instapaper and I'm just using delicious to obtain new sources and Pearltrees to do the actual curation (I've replaced Instapaper with a Pearl that collects ToRead material).

    Here you can visit what I'm curating:

    (actually, if you go back and go to my root pearl, you can see all the topics I'm curating).

    Hello everyone,

    I started using last year, but honestly I did not have a clue about curation, because I thought curators were museum specialists and curation was for food. I kept aggregating content on my topics because this was a way to keep data organized, find relevant items, and meet other users with the same interests. Then we had a daring idea of submitting a proposal for a workshop on “Curation” at the PLE (Personal Learning Environments) Conference 2012, which was accepted.

    I found Robin Good, Beth Kanter, Judy O’Connell, and others and slowly realized that the best way to benefit from curation for learning would be to start doing it in a focused way.

    I joined this community at P2PU which kept me motivated to go on curating. Right now I feel I found the right topic for my dissertation: curation for personal knowledge management.

    This is my page on

    Thank you for reading this.

    Best regards to all.

    I have enjoyed this course as it's got me looking back at the accounts on many curation services that I set up as trials.

    I tried, but didn't get the hang of it early on, but will give it another shot.

    My main news gathering & sharing tool is still Twitter. It keeps me informed based on those of similar interests I like to follow. I don't necessarily curate what I find there, but I do ReTweet for others interested and this gives them a chance to curate.

    I find that I have allowed my Delicious account to automate based on using ifttt -it's now a link graveyard.

    Curation is something you have to work at, like most things, so I will be doing that while trying tolink some of the services I do use together where possible.

    I think my next move should be to try to pull some of those services into my blog.

    Fantastic, now how to find people willing to collaborate with me (at, now there's a real challenge. I suppose it's time to procure, produce and share more content so that vistors understand the project more readily.

    I've created a scoopit topic on indigenous learning.

    It's definitely quick and timely, but not functioning for me as well as simply Googling and using JSTOR etc.

    thank you for all of the helpful feedback you have provided for this challenge. The next iteration will include more information on finding and curating non-current archival material because of your comments.
