My comment: A great example of the value that content curation can provide to customers, developers as well as to the public at large. The choice of starting the site with great examples to follow-up on is also the best possible approach to guide and train future contributors on what is expected of them. A great model for the many specialized curated answer sites that will spring up in coming years.

Curation Examples: Videry, a Collection of Video Clips For Web Designers

Curation Examples: Videry, a Collection of Video Clips For Web Designers | Content Curation World | Scoop.it



Robin Good's insight:



Videry is a great example of video curation at work.


Videry is a hand-curated collection of over 30 great video clips for web designers.


The beauty and value of this collection, in the context of curation is in the following:


  • The quality of the clips selected

  • A clean, and simple layout - content over looks
    The essence is in the selection made and that's why it needs to stand out.

  • The essential info is upfront - video thumbnails + title + description
    no other distractions.

  • A Pinterest-like simmetrical visual layout that allows easy scanning of the page


Where it could do better:


  • Titles: no personalization for context - titles in the collection are exactly as the originals - the curator here could have improved and contextuaized titles for this collection, while keeping a good reference, visible to everyone, of the original one.

  • Descriptions: these are the original video descriptions. No additions, no opinion, no contextualization. The curator could have written his own descriptions from these in the context of this collection, while leaving the original descriptions as an extra option (since they are all already accessible under the original video location).

  • No visibile authorship for the collection.




P.S.: I think this clean design used in this collection is so effective that I wish there was a service prividing the ability to create curated video collections with such information design elegance.

Robin Good: During the recent virtual and live conference Emerge2012, in which I had the opportunity to run a workshop on Content Curation for Education, I have collaboratively started a collection of great examples of curation for education.


My goal was the one of showcasing some good examples of curated collection that were either focusing on education or that some clear education use/application.


It is a starting point.
