Re-using content and curation
Little off track in terms of how to use any particular Articulate tool but one that I hope is relevant, interesting and can generate some discussion.
I picked up a Twitter conversation by @tmiket & @elearning this week that made me think ( I love those Twitter snippets) about how we focus on the creation of new content rather than ensure that our existing content is distributed, accessed and where necessary re-used to maximum effect in the organisation.
@tmiket & @elearning touched upon how sometimes it is actually faster to create content then re-use and this interested me as I've been using Scoopit to experiment with curating content on the web and it made me think how we don't do enough curation in our own orgs and get content to people when they need it or in turn provide them with skills to find content when they need it.
With a tool like Screenr and Articulate making it so easy to create high quality materials is it too easy to get in to a mindset of creation first rather than making use of existing content and making this more readily available or at point of need.
I'm sure this topic can be expanded but as a starting point I hope this gives us something to go off but please feel free to raise anything else associated with the topic and I'd value hearing your thoughts on content creation vs effective use of your existing content and how you filter and curate content in your organisation
