As a learning experiment in content curation, I have signed up to publish a weekly "newspaper" of the news and information I follow on the topics of instructional design, workforce development, training, and other learning topics. I am using an interesting - and free - tool called Paper.li . We'll see how it goes. I hope to build and refine the content over time, to provide the most interesting, relevant and useful samples of the information I track.
Here is how Paper.li describe themselves:
Paper.li is a content curation service. It enables people to publish newspapers based on topics they like and treat their readers to fresh news, daily.
We believe that people (and not machines) are the ones qualified to curate the content that matters most. We also think that these same people can greatly help their own communities to find their way through this “massive content world” we live in. We’re here to help!
Every day, around the world, millions of articles are featured on Paper.lis, benefiting millions of readers. We are just at the beginning of an exciting new adventure and we think we’re on to something good.
We love the semantic web, we respect our content creators, we strive for simplicity, and we thrive on feedback.
We are based at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) – Innovation Center (Lausanne, Switzerland) and we are proud to support an international and distributed team presence in Europe, Asia and the U.S.
