Digital Assets Creates New Role for L&D Pros: The Content Curator

ATD Learning Technologies

The volume of information being created is increasing faster than we can make sense of it. Think: blogs, email, wikis, communities of practice. Indeed, the ease with which organizations can generate, review, and retrieve information has helped them build a considerable amount of potential learning resources. However, it also has led to information overload, confusion, and sometimes even anxiety.

Why Content Curation Should be in Your Skillset

It can save millions, reduce frustration, and boost the velocity of information in your organization. You expect the curator of an art gallery to know the collection and to: search out the best items. They have the same job but instead of paintings, deal with digital artifacts such as: blog posts and Tweets. Curating these items — selecting, organizing, evaluating, and sharing them widely — multiplies an organization’s return on information many times over.
