Buying content from different providers and sticking it on your LMS is not curation.
I heard someone suggest this was the case yesterday at Learning 2022 and it couldn’t be more wrong. I’ve mentioned before but a reminder curation is 3 steps:
- Aggregation – collecting ‘stuff’
- Sifting – working out which ‘stuff’ is good enough
- Filtering – weeding out the underused and poor ‘stuff’
Stop assuming that by just aggregating that you are curating – you are just serving people up more ‘stuff’ they won’t have time to complete.
