A Curated Collection of Free Video Documentaries Online: Documentary Addict | Content Curation World |
Robin Good's insight:

If you are a documentary enthusiast like me, you will find plenty of great videos, curated and organized into categories and lists by visiting DocumentaryAddict.

The site, which is completely free to use, offers organised free access to nearly 5000 free documentaries already available online and keeps itself alive by using contextual ads from Google on its content pages.

Aside form the Google ads, which are not very intrusive, the site is extremely well designed and offers multiple ways to find the type of documentary you may want to watch, through 26categories, several compilation of top titles and a full search function.

Users can also rate and comment on each documenrary page providing a useful space for learning and exchanging from other fellow watchers.

A great example of sustainable content curation at work. By simply organizing and making more accessible what is already available out there, great value can be created as well as a community of passionate followers.

I'm rather surprised you consider this curation... It's not that it's product-centered, but that it's a limited pool from which any sort of curation can be done.

I think it's curation when they curate their all content from YouTube

A Curated Collection of Innovative Documentaries: The MIT Docubase

A Curated Collection of Innovative Documentaries: The MIT Docubase | Content Curation World |
The open documentary lab
Robin Good's insight:

Docubase is a project of the MIT Open Documentary Lab that aims to create a collaborative, participatory community around a growing collection of innovative documentaries curated by experts and outsiders alike.

Documentaries can be searched and sorted easily in a number of ways (most recent, most viewed, alphabetical order / or as a list rather than a mosaic). The interface is slick, colorful and simple to use.

More than 140 documentaries are already available and a selected group of curators has put together a number of publicly available playlists designed aroound key themes connecting these clips. 


The curators: 

A fantastic resource for documentary lovers and a great example of how in an open and participatory project, curation can play a fundamental role.

Free to use.
