‘List.ly’ is a simple, yet potentially very powerful service for crowdcurating ranked lists.
You could share material in many other ways as well, for instance in a shared Google Doc, but List.ly allows a group of people to vote list items up or down + it is a bit more visually appealing.
Teachers could collect anthologies of texts or links to websites for different courses:
1) Upload a (copyright expired) text to your public Dropbox-folder
2) Add the public link to your text to a list.ly list of texts for instance for teaching ‘Romanticism’ (Danish)
I have created different lists for different purposes here (some in Danish)
To start your own list, simply create an account, make a list, and share it.
Students could crowdcurate lists of material, when they work on different projects.
There is an extension for Chrome, so that you can add links to a list.ly list from your browser. Neat 🙂
Do you use List.ly in your teaching? How ? If not, what tools do you use for curation and sharing resources in your faculty? Please share in the comments.
