Content Curation for NGOs: Where's The Value?

Robin Good's insight:

If you are a NGO or a non-profit organization, your reference point for anything that relates to effective communication online should be Beth Kanter

In the presentation / discussion she facilitated yesterday in San Francisco she illustrated the why, how and the key benefits that content curation can bring to any organization.

She writes: "Content curation can empower us to learn more and use that knowledge to get deeper impact for our nonprofit’s programs.   

We can no longer afford to get distracted by the volume of information flying past us.

In this article she published before the event, you can find some valuable indications of how true "value" can be added to your content by adopting a "curating" perspective and what are the type of questions you should be considering to evaluate in a critical fashion the content you produce or curate.

Beth, that's wonderful and very useful. Thank you so much for including me in your slideshow, article and presentation, I am very honored by it. Thanks also for sharing this valuable piece of reference and for having shared the collaborative approach you have chosen during the workshop to motivate people to think more and deeper about their own curation. Thank you.

This is an excellent visual explanation of content curation, the goals, and the content curation process.

Curate Visual Stories and Multimedia Itineraries with Google Tour Builder

From the Haiti earthquake to Hurricane Sandy, check out how Team Rubicon uses Tour Builder to document the disaster relief missions that have taken them arou...

Robin Good's insight:

Google Tour Builder is a new web app which allows you to create visual stories that integrate maps, location pins, routes followed, texts, images and video clips into a shareable content bundle.

You simply log in with your Google account into GTB and you can start immediately building a tour by identifying specific spots on the world map and by providing additional information to build your story.

Completed tours (which are set to private by default) can be edited at any time and can be publicly shared and viewed by anyone with a web browser.

N.B.: Currently, Tour Builder requires the Google Earth plugin which is only available for Windows and Mac OS X 10.6+. While tours can't be viewed on mobile browsers, they can be accessed using the Google Earth App, which is available for Android, iPhone/iPad, and Linux.

My comment: An excellent new experimental tool from Google which can provide great benefit to those in need to showcase, present and divulge their projects, journeys, or tourism-related itineraries.  

Free to use.
