Distance Education Universities with very large number of students face a unique problem of scalability of their pedagogical methods and content delivery modes. The role of the faculty is key in mapping the necessary resources to deliver the required learning to the students without disturbing the essential flexible nature of Distance Education. This requires design of content in multiple formats to cater to varied learning styles and teaching formats such as study material, Powerpoint slides, chat transcripts, videos, FAQs and many more. This presentation tries to formulate a framework and a methodology with the key role of content curation for the faculty members.

Dear Participants of CO12,
