I'm pretty passionate about making learning accessible to people at their point of need - as those working closely with me know! What's the point in having/creating brilliant learning content if it's buried deep within a cumbersome LMS where nobody is going to find it, or at least not when they need it? We can transform learning experiences by creating a seamless learner journey, taking into account the who/why/where and how the learning will be accessed as well as filtering and adding value to the content.
Hence I'm particularly excited to be working with a global client to create an online toolkit for managers - pulling together all of the relevant content that currently sits on their (hard-to-navigate according to several sources!) intranet into a practical and intuitive 'one-stop shop' of digital learning and resources so that new and existing managers have what they need when they need it, a win-win for both the managers and the business!
This is an interesting article on this very subject and also contains a useful 'e-learning project toolkit' which is an excellent example of curated content in itself.
Curated learning is a learning experience made up of existing resources presented in a new way, as opposed to created from scratch. The name might make you think of art galleries and museums, but the truth is that curation happens everywhere, all the time. We curate our photos into captioned albums, curate our favorite online content into bookmarked folders and even curate the events of our lives on social media. Learning content curation isn’t that different. It’s all about selecting the right resources, adding value to enhance the learning and attracting people to it.
