Brief Description: Educational Content is available on the internet in most the languages and in different styles. This brings a new problem of students hopping from one topic to another and switch to entertainment from education. This enormous availability of content brings new opportunities to teachers. Now we can teach students on teaching prerequisites with curated content while focusing only on course content in class. It means you can personalize your instructions for prerequisites.
Content curation activity also helps you in planning your own online course. You come to know how you can improve the content and presentation quality of your course and what content you can keep in your course.
