Listly is a great tool for helping organisations, teams and individuals organise and share content.

It’s simplicity is is its strength. It enables users to create lists of content, organise the way the list looks as well as the order of content and share it across social channels. It also provides the code for you to embed your list into any web page. And you can also embed other lists that have been shared publicly.

As well as being able to organise content and present it a range of ways, Listly enables readers to vote up and comment on the content on the list. It also enables people to add to a list – there’s a short video explaining the Listly concept here. This social functionality is really powerful. Imagine how you could use it within your organisation to identify what content really matters? A good place to start might be some of your onboarding or training content.

Then there is the potential for your content marketing – curation is powerful for helping build your credibility online and lists are a great way for telling a story.

There is also a premium option which provides more list customisation as well as private lists.

Below is an example of a list in ‘list’ format. I have taken some links I used on curation and put them into the list. I have tried to create a narrative from the top down (under ‘Add to list’ select ‘curated’), talking about the context of curation and why curation is important, approaches to curation, curation tools and an example of how a company is using curation.

And below here is an example of how we (Sam Burrough and I) have been using Listly to share the content of our latest MOOC and collate links shared by participants. This list, created and managed by Sam, shows the power of curation as we create a list powered by us and the MOOC particpants.
