Are your curated eLearning resources helping online learners absorb the information more effectively? Or are they yet another distraction to deal with? This article features the 8 best practices to curate value-added content for your eLearning course.eLearning content curation is hard work. Unfortunately, it’s not as simple as gathering as much data as possible and dumping it onto your online learners. It requires organization, planning, and audience research to mine the best online training resources for your eLearning course design and deliver it in a way that’ s easy for online learners to digest. These are the 8 best practices for more effective eLearning content curation.Aimlessly wandering the Internet and hoping to stumble on valuable assets is not the best approach. You need to have a plan of action in order to focus your research efforts for effective eLearning content curation. Creating a to-do list is a great place to start. Determine your goals for each round of research. Then break these down into tasks. For example, the goal is to build online learners’ creative thinking skills. As such, you’d look for one or two online training resources for each learning preference that cover different aspects of the skill set. For example, a podcast that offers brainstorming tips, and online training simulations that enhance lateral thinking. This is also a good time to assign individual tasks to your team.You probably already have a handful of sites that you visit frequently. This is a good start, but you should compile a list of go-to online training resources to keep everything organized. Gradually add to the list as you discover new sources that provide valuable and reliable eLearning content. You should also trim the list if certain sources fail to meet your criteria over time. For example, a website that you’ve visited regularly becomes too biased or opinionated. Review the list periodically to cross off items that are out of touch and incorporate new favorites.
