Curator

Overview

You may not know it, but you likely are already a curator.

If you have ever made a playlist in iTunes, or organized a personal library in your house or on a device, or bookmarked your favourite sites on your computer, or subscribed to a feed reader, you are a curator!

This module takes you beyond curating for yourself and your personal interests to learn how to curate, from your learners’ perspective, to create engaging, interactive, and open course materials. It discusses Creative Commons and Copyright and explores strategies to search for, find, and evaluate Open Education Resources (OER).

Outcome

Examine the value and the impact of collecting and combining existing resources when creating content.

Objectives

  • Compare and contrast the key aspects of copyright and Creative Commons.
  • Develop or adopt a system for evaluating and sharing learning resources.
  • Explore curation tools that align to specific preferences and needs.
