How to Start Curating Content

Stack of bindersContent curation is a way of collecting online resources in an organized manner and then effectively sharing them with a chosen audience.

The amount of valuable information online can at times seem overwhelming. Curate those materials to best take advantage of everything that the internet has to offer.

    Hi Rivka, these are pretty good tools you have mentioned for content curation. But, since Bundlr is not active these days, let me introduce you Elink.io (https://elink.io). It very useful for teachers, bloggers, marketers etc. Elink lets you create web pages and website embeds from any URL in minutes. You can customize the look and feel of your content with 19 beautiful pre-built templates. They are free for lifetime but if you go for PRO account to unlock the irresistible features, they are even offering a discounted price for educational & non-profit organizations. Thanks 🙂
