A Digital Design Learning Hub Created Around Curated Content: Hack Design

A Digital Design Learning Hub Created Around Curated Content: Hack Design | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



HackDesign is a great example of content curation at work. The team of design curators behind this site, targeted at people interested in digital/web design, has curated the very best articles into a series of lessons and the top tools into a well-categorized toolkit.


Each lesson is per se a collection of annotated pointers to existing quality articles on the topic, and the tools are individually reviewed and organized across different application areas.


The official intro: "We've asked some of the world's best designers to help us curate the best and most useful blogs, books, games, videos, and tutorials that helped them learn critical elements of design. We're organizing them all into a digestible and iterative lesson plan so you can apply this knowledge to your own projects."


A model for anyone interested in creating a learning hub on any topic by curating the best content already available online.


Must-see. 9/10

A Curated Collection of Daily Quotes Matched to Relevant Songs: Literary Jukebox

A Curated Collection of Daily Quotes Matched to Relevant Songs: Literary Jukebox | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



Maria Popova is the author of Literary Jukebox, a fascinating collection of daily quotes from her favorite books, each one thematically matched to a song.


She writes about it: "Sometimes, the connections will be fairly obvious. Other times, they might be more esoteric and require some reflection.


Literary Jukebox is truly a work of love and a great example of how curating something you truly enjoy, can create permanent value, while providing cultural insight, an opportunity for music discovery to the reader as well as exposure and visibility to the books and music authors included.



N.B.: I encourage you to support Maria's work, as she is a brilliant and inspiring mind and her work on Brain Pickings is a clear demonstration of someone whose work benefits no big brand, advertiser or sponsor, but the likes of you and me and our ability to remain curious.

Collect and Organize Your Favorite Texts, Images and Videos with Keeeb

Pinterest meets Evernote. Every day you surf and find amazing things on the internet. With Keeeb you can save sentences or paragraphs, single images and vide...
Robin Good's insight:



Keeeb is a Pinterest-like content curation tool, which allows you to clip individual text passages, images you find on web page or video clips into visual collections that you can organize according to your preferences.


Within Keeb visual boards, which can be set to be public or private (default), you can in fact drag and re-arrange individual items as you prefer. Collected items can also be easily copied or moved to other "pages" (collections) you have and can be shared directly on your Facebook or Twitter social media channels.


You can also work collaboratively with other teammates on a collection by inviting them to contribute to any Keeeb page you have created.


A unique feature of Keeeb called Groups allows to tie together multiple items in a collection by dragging them on top of each other. Groups in turn, can be nested into other groups.


Keeeb makes it very easy to clip multiple parts from a web page or set of pages and to collect them in an orderly manner inside a page.


Keeeb offers much better functionalities than Pinterest, allowing serious content curators to create valuable collections of multimedia excerpts on specific subjects.


Definitely worth trying.

Hi David, Keeeb is a good tool if you need to collect and organize web resources, images or video. It's better than Pinterest functionality-wise but it does not have its audience. So my advice is try it out and see if it does what you need to do.

Snowfallen StoryTelling: 150+ Examples of Long-Format Multimedia Stories

Snowfallen StoryTelling: 150+ Examples of Long-Format Multimedia Stories | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



Snowfallen definition: "to publish a whopping great story online that’s stuffed full of integrated multimedia elements — in the manner of the New York Times’ Snow Fall, the epic report on a brutal avalanche that was released late last year to much acclaim."

(source: Matter)

Whether you think that the SnowFall-like journalism format is a great thing or not, this new storytelling format characterized by long narrative texts accompanied by many multimedia elements, seems to see no stop to its growth.


Bobby Johnson of Matter / Medium, is not quite convinced that this format is always the best way to go, but besides his interesting pros and cons for the use of the snowfallen format, he has done a fantastic job of curating a great an "open" collection of all of the "snowfallen" examples already published out there.


The collection provides in a chronological order, "snowfall"-like examples essentially for the last three years, though there are a few dating back as far as to 1996. 


Excellent. 9/10

Visually Curate Your Digital Magazine or Product Showcase with Clipzine

Visually Curate Your Digital Magazine or Product Showcase with Clipzine | Content Curation World | Scoop.it



Robin Good's insight:



Clipzine is a web app which makes it easy to collect images from any website page and to visually organize them into page-based collections.

On each page it is possible to place as many as 24 pieces of content and to decide how large or small each element will be. The user can expand each imported element over two or more tiles and move it around to any position.


It is also possible to use one or more tiles to add custom text and information and to format it professionally.


One key practical use of Clipzine that can be helpful in testing out its capablities is its ability to create a visual magazine of any Pinterest board.

Just go to the selected Pinterest board page, click the Clipzine bookmarklet and select the unique Clipzine option to capture "all" images available on that page at once.


Once captured all the images in a "zine", click on Edit / Syling and then on the Styling button that appears above each page content. Now hover with your mouse on any image in the collection and experiment with the feature buttons that appear around and in the center of each image.


The final collection, called a zine, can be saved, published on the web, shared on social media, embedded on other sites or saved to a PDF file.




My comment: This is one of the very few curation tools that leverages a tremendously powerful variable: control of positioning and size of elements in a collection. This is very useful as it empowers the curator to go beyond the linear top-down list or newspaper/magazine sequence and to create a more varied "equilibrium" between the elements in the collection.

Understanding how to use Clipzine is not as intuitive as one would like, and the UI, thanks also to the presence of unpleasant and distracting ads is not as clean and straightforward as I would like to be.


Promising concept. Powerful visual control in the hands of the curator. A bit disappointing implementation and not so intuitive and simple to use (for now). 




Free to use. Ad supported.

Capture, Organize and Publish Your Curated Content Collections with Clipboard

Capture, Organize and Publish Your Curated Content Collections with Clipboard | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



In my humble opinion, Clipboard is the best capture and clipping tool for curation work that you can use today.  This is the real Pinterest on steroids. This free web app allows you to easily grab any text, image, area or full web page from any web site and to save it in your collection.


To be specific "you can clip text, photos, animations, videos, or all of the above mixed together. You can clip entire web pages or strip them down to just text. You can drag-and-drop images and text files from your desktop to Clipboard. You can create your own notes directly in Clipboard and save them as clips. You can also - if you are using a Google Chrome browser - bookmark entire PDF web pages (but you cannot clip sections of PDF files)."


The Clipboard browser extensions for Chrome and Firefox and the generic bookmarklet which can work on any browser is a little technology gem, making the capture work an absolute breeze.


Clipboard allows your collections to be set for public or private use, and it makes it easy to invite you other people that you want to contribute to your curation work.


Clips can be tagged, commented, annotated and shared with specific users (via mentioning their name handle). Clipboard collections can be easily shared on all major social networks, or embedded in any web site or blog.


On the display and navigation front good news too. Collections can be viewed in one of three possible modes (tile, item and list view).


Free to use.
