Digital Curation: The 5+ C's

Feedly

Feedly

Curate

Feedly gives users the ability to collect and follow sources from a variety of people as well as organizations. The interface is simple and easy to follow. Feedly also has an integration option that allows users to share and connect with other applications like Dropbox and OneNote.
I think that this could be an excellent resource for college students organize things like research journals, leaders in the field, and possible content to use in their classes.

LinkedIn

LinkedIn

Connecting

Communicating

The Facebook of professionals! LinkedIn is a source for professionals to connect with others in their field as well as branch out to other avenues through connections they have made. Users can post their resume, vitae, and also search for careers through LinkedIn. This could act as a great resource for college students to stay connected with their peers after graduation, as well as, serve as a way to communicate with people through networking opportunities.

Collaboration

For the Love of lists!
This site helps curate lists on topics all across the board from best backpacks to studying habits and organizational habits. This site could be beneficial for college students looking for simple lists without having to go out of their way to do all the research, and may give them a launch point for further investigation. This site allows for a lot of creativity in how students may want to create their lists. It can be as simple as a To Do List or as magazine friendly as a Buzzfeed article. This could be a fun project to have college students collaborate and do research to produce their own lists to share with the class on a topic. They can also use the site to share their own lists on social media.

Pearltree

Curating

Communicating

Connecting

I feel like this site could be a great source to someone who is willing to put forth the effort to get started and establish their networks through this site. The user has the ability to create collections of materials like articles, websites, and videos that they can then tag as well as share. The user can then also create networks within areas of focus. The set up page was easy to use, however there is so much that you can do through the site, it might take someone a few tries to figure out how to maximize their use of the tools. College students may look to use this site as a way to connect with other students or share their areas of interest with others.

Pocket

Pocket

Curate

personal favorite so far. One that I actually might personally use. I always tend to find articles while searching for other things and get off task by going to view them when I have other tasks to accomplish. I feel like Pocket would give me a place to store things I want to read without feeling like I need to read them immediately or not be able to find them again.

I think this site and app would be something college students could benefit from through curating articles to use/share through social media, or to help them stay on task while searching online. Its user friendly and can be synced with phone easily.

Quora

Quora

Communicate

Connect

This site provides users with an opportunity to connect and communicate with experts in the field through questions asked and answered. Specifically, users can ask questions within focus groups and experts have the chance to proved authoritative opinions and answers to questions. Through the process of creating an account you can become an expert in your field or areas of interest and contribute to larger conversations. However, there is a lot of questions to sort through and process which could slow people down if looking for an answer to a specific question already asked. It may also require students to be responsible digital citizens and understand the source in which the information is coming from.

Refworks

Curating

For college students reworks is a great tool for learning to be responsible students while searching, organizing, and citing literature. Newest version of Refworks is easy to use, can be linked to Word or google+ to allow for seamless exporting of citations. Students can use Refworks to collect research articles to then use later within papers and school work. This site is free to use through most institutions that have subscriptions.

ScoopIt

ScoopIt

Curating

Communicating

Scoop.It is an online web publishing site that allows users to follow current articles and topics being published in areas of interest. Scoop.it then filters these articles into top and trending for the user to "scoop" the article and publish it on their own social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Students and professionals who are interested in becoming more active on their social media sites might find this useful to eliminate time searching for relevant articles to publish on their feeds.

Twitter

Twitter

Communication

Connecting

Twitter has a unique way of connecting people through 280 characters. Through following organizations, professionals in the field, famous people, and friends, Twitter allows users to connect and keep up to date with our ever evolving world. Students now have the ability to view and share through creating their own tweet and retweeting interesting things they have found. Often times I find that I use twitter to get up-to-date information on my teams as well as events in my community.

Youtube

Youtube

Communicating

Creating

Youtube provides users with endless possibilities for learning and exploring new areas. For many college students, youtube is the reason we can tie a tie, do the laundry, jump start a car, and how to write a check. It also provides students the opportunity to become the creators and develop a way to share their own knowledge with the world. I have had students give ukulele lessons and share class projects through Youtube channels. This multi-dimension of sharing allows students to connect and be connected to the entire world.
