I’m organising a tutorial at the 23rd International World Wide Web Conference – WWW 2014 together with John Domingue and Stefan Dietze. The scope of this tutorial will be two-fold:

  • New online learning methods will be taught for supporting the teaching of Linked Data. Additionally, the lessons learned and the best practices derived from designing and delivering a Linked Data curriculum by the EUCLID project will be discussed.
  • Ways in which Linked Data principles and technologies can be used to support online learning and create innovative educational services will be explained, based on the experience developed in the development of existing Linked Data applications for online learning. We will in particular rely on the data catalogue, use cases and applications considered by the LinkedUp project.
