From Digitisation To Content Creation

  1. 1. From Digitisation to Content Creation: new models for public value Nick Poole Chief Executive Collections Trust
  2. 4. Digitisation plays an essential but minor part in connecting stuff with public value
  3. 5. There have been some gaps in emphasis in our approach to Digitisation so far
  4. 8. The reason we’re in this position is that funds have been limited and we have emphasised completeness over value Faced with the choice between spending our budget on Digitisation & the other activities in the chain (marketing, narrative, user-testing, interface design) we have spent the money on Digitisation. The problem with this approach is that it has emphasised production over the integrity, quality, and fluidity of the user experience.
  5. 9. Which means we end up doing things like this...
  6. 11. <ul><li>The classic product development & supply chain questions... </li></ul><ul><li>Who are we doing it for? </li></ul><ul><li>What do they need? </li></ul><ul><li>How do they behave? </li></ul><ul><li>How does what we’re creating satisfy what they need? </li></ul><ul><li>How do we deliver it at the point at which they need it? </li></ul>
  7. 13. <ul><li>Key developments in production ... </li></ul><ul><li>Moving from creating digital images and database records to editorialised, narrative content </li></ul><ul><li>Using a smaller number of things to create insight, rather than a larger number to illustrate </li></ul><ul><li>Producing integrated narrative experiences through connections, moving beyond ‘search – find – leave’ </li></ul><ul><li>Understanding how far the consumer experience (and hence expectation) has come in the last 10 years </li></ul>
  8. 14. <ul><li>Key developments in delivery ... </li></ul><ul><li>You can do both: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Create your own point of delivery which satisfies the specific needs of your specific audiences </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Allow other people to aggregate and use your digital information to create multiple points of delivery to meet the needs of other audiences </li></ul></ul>
  9. 15. <ul><li>Promotion ... </li></ul><ul><li>A website without sustained and proactive marketing is a silo </li></ul><ul><li>Social networking, content sharing and distributed re-use are the best, cheapest kinds of marketing there are </li></ul>
  10. 17. <ul><li>Looking ahead... </li></ul><ul><li>Your users are also your collaborators, distributors, marketers and champions </li></ul><ul><li>Create Value is the new Digitise Everything </li></ul><ul><li>Moving from ‘Database Search’ to the flow of content through multiple channels and interfaces </li></ul><ul><li>The age demands both curatorial authority and user-generated interpretation </li></ul>
