ELC 012: Content Curation For Learning


Subscribe or rate in iTunes.

An effective content curator pays attention to the big picture to watch patterns and trends. He or she also focuses on the small details to satisfy the needs of the audience. Gaining competence in content curation is a Learning and Development skill for the 21st century.

In this podcast, I chat with Robin Good, new media communication expert, and the publisher of MasterNewMedia.org, a web magazine for communication professionals. Based in Rome, Italy, there’s no one better to enrich our understanding of what’s involved in curation. Robin shares expert techniques, best practices and tools for curation, which can be used to replace or supplement courses and a way to help employees keep up-to-date in their fields.

He can be found and reached on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIN and YouTube as “RobinGood.”

    Mesmerizing! Thank you, Connie, for the introduction to this very practical topic and the expansive list of tools including your very engaging guest. I’m anxious to dive in and to share this information with colleagues near and far.

    Glad you liked it, Mary. I have to say my favorite aspect were his Italian metaphors. You just don’t normally hear metaphors like that! Very charming.
