Scoop.it - Digital Curation Tool
Scoop.it is an online application that enables you to select websites and construct a collection around specific topics that can be shared with others. It produces an attractive and media rich collection which features a summary, images or mulitmedia and enables you to add your own comments to contextualise your selection. Take a look at the RSC Scotland topic - Supporting the Digital Practitioner (opens in a new window).
The software will suggest content to you based on the criteria you set and like other social media applications, you can follow and be followed by other users who can add comments, rescoop to their own collections and disseminate through other social media channels. The url can be distributed and the service is free to use for up to 5 separate topics.
