Sharing links to what you have read as an expert in your area of expertise can be a valuable knowledge-sharing activity for your colleagues and learners. However, sharing alone does not add any value and only becomes meaningful when you add your own knowledge and context to show the relevance and usefulness of the links. This is what curation means.
What's in it for you?
Selecting links/resources based on clear criteria and adding your own context/story to the chosen links enriches the quality of your course and saves you from having to create all-new content from scratch.
Learners value handpicked, curated content, because curators are considered experts in their fields.
How to use Links (Curation) in Easygenerator
Create a content page, choose the Text layout, and select the Link (curation) content block. Then, insert a link and add your own explanation.
You can select the view of the curation link: link without image, the image on the left, image on the right.
You can upload images from your PC, from your account library, or from the stock library. You can resize and crop the image, to do so, just click the image block and use the toolbar that appears.
For each link you share, explain why you added it and what’s in it for others. This helps your readers to determine whether they want to read the resource.
