Though it has been quiet for some time since the last posting, a great many interesting things were and are happening in the area. Most notably, we are really excited to announce that the LinkedUp project (“LinkedUp – Linking Web Data for Education Project”) has started. Funded by the EU in the FP7 programme, LinkedUp will advance the adoption of open Web data, in particular for educational purposes.
The LinkedUp Challenge: will identify, support and promote highly innovative applications and technologies which exploit open Web data
Curated datasets: LinkedUp will build on previous activities (such as Linked Education) and catalog and curate open Web data to make it accessible for data consumers, in particular in educational contexts.
Evaluation Framework: the LinkedUp evaluation framework (metrics, methods, benchmarks) can be reused and instantiated to evaluate Open Web Data applications in particular in the educational domain.
Web data success stories: applications and use cases identified during the LinkedUp Challenge will help data consumers the education sector to capitalise on open web data
