Best Practice in Online Content Curation in Higher Education

This best practice document aims to provide advice on how to get the most from using a curation platform, and indeed identifying whether a curation platform is right for the job you have in mind. We present this as a series of key consideration with a discussion and, where appropriate, examples from our practice.

Introduction

Online content curation is the process of selecting, reviewing, and organising resources available on the web for a particular audience. It is much like putting together a reading list, but with the benefit of attaching a review of, and/or commentary on, the resources you are recommending. Many platforms also have the facility for readers to add comments, for sharing the resources via social media or virtual learning environments (VLEs), and for developing a personal learning network (PLN) by following other curators and others able to follow your work.

Please download for the full report.

Also, please see the related resource Online Content Curation Tools Technology Reviews, which reviews a range of the most well-known platforms and piloted and assessed them as support tools for use in higher education.
