Building a Content Hub

Since I'm just starting this project, it makes sense to set up a place to store all the content I'm planning to create in the next 52 weeks.

Looking back at the past 10 years as a teacher, I've used a number of different content hubs to share material, resources, exercises and updates with my students, so I hope I can draw a little bit from those experiences and failures 😊

Here's the plan:

  • Identify what type of content I actually want to share
  • Select the most appropriate tool from my arsenal
  • Create some basic layouts to make navigation easier for my students (and to make the creation process less overwhelming for me)
  • Start adding content to the hub
  • Share it!

#1 - What do I actually want/need to share?

I hate this question because it forces me to make a choice I'm not sure I'm 100% ready to make. But I guess it's a necessary evil, especially if I want to pick the right tool/platform for this project.

So here's my list:

  • Weekly articles (like this one!)
    I want to post both finished articles and work-in-progress content, so I'll probably need a tool that allows me to make changes in a quick and easy way.
  • Lots of embedded content: video, audio, image galleries, pages from, Calendly, Canva, Google Slides, VideoAsk and so many more...
    I plan to use and test different applications, so it makes sense to pick a tool that is flexible and works well with other applications.
  • A built-in Newsletter
    I want to offer whoever is reading this an easy way to stay in touch, getting a weekly email with the latest project sounds like a good option.

Is there anything else I should include in the list?
