Selection of Articles
  • To help students meet Learning Outcomes all articles are carefully curated from reputable web sources. To ensure sources are reputable, the Runway employs a process called content curation. Kontentino  is defined as follows:
  • “Curated content is content from other sources that you share on your social media platforms. It is something that corresponds with your brand and you consider it a valuable piece of information for your target audience. Content curation means collecting, categorizing and sharing valuable pieces of content on a specific topic. And similarly, like the curator in a museum, you curate your own collection across social media platforms.”
When checking sources Runway editors are advised to use some of the web fact-checking resources as per the following Runway Page:
