ECO512 From Content Creation to Content Curation: An Emerging Critical Role
10:45 AM - 11:45 AM Thursday, March 23
Management and Strategy
The Internet is a terrific knowledge repository. The sheer size of the content stored on the web is unimaginable. Within organizational intranets, the amount of content that is available is also impressive, but is it good content? Is it the right content for the right purpose? Is it up to date? Is it understandable? The more you have to ask these questions about online content, the less efficient your search for the right information will be. Even more of a concern is that you might be more likely to find bad content, act on it (believing it is correct), and suffer the consequences
In this session we will explore the rationale and challenges of content curation and review a number of strategies for assuring your content is curated appropriately. You will learn the importance of becoming a good content curator in addition to being a good content creator, and find out how curators are less focused on finding more content than on making sure they have the right content. Finally, you will learn more about the focuses of content curation: accuracy, relevance, usefulness, and value of knowledge assets.
In this session, you will learn:
- What content curation is and why it is so critical to learning and performance
- The relationship between content curation and the learning and performance ecosystem
- The role—and limitations—of technology, users, and authors in content curation
- Eleven content curation challenges
- Seven approaches to doing content curation work
Novice and intermediate designers, developers, managers, project managers, and senior leaders.
