Curation - Beyond the Buzzword Spotlight 2017 - April 5, 2017

Ben Betts


We’re content rich. It’s piling up everywhere, both inside and outside of our organizations. Making use of the abundant content in the world would seem like a good way to develop our online learning experiences. We spend so much money creating content; wouldn’t we be better to just curate? But is it legal?

Here’s the good news: Thanks to the world of hypertext (e.g., linking), you can curate your content while remaining entirely legal—even if you’re selling the experience. But you will need to take some active decisions along the way to remain on the right side of the law. In this session, we’ll cover a golden rule and explore a number of tips for keeping on the moral and legal high-ground while curating content.

In this session, you will learn:

  • The golden rule of content curation
  • What fair use is, and how to put it into practice
  • Tips for staying on the moral high ground when curating
