Motivation Data on the Web Some eyecatching opener illustrating growth and or diversity of web data Learning & Education with the Web of Data Stefan Dietze (L3S Research Center, DE, @stefandietze, http://purl.org/dietze) Stefan Dietze 10/03/14
Research areas Web science, Information Retrieval, Semantic Web & Linked Data, data & knowledge integration (mapping, classification, interlinking) Application domains: education/TEL, Web archiving, … Some projects Introduction http://www.l3s.de/ Stefan Dietze 10/03/14 2 See also: http://purl.org/dietze (Linked) Web data & education Early activities in the field: tutorials, workshops, competitions (LILE – Linked Learning, LAK Data Challenge…) http://linkededucation.org & http://linkeduniversities.org
Open Education requires Open Data (Open) Educational Resources World Wide Web Distance Universities Linked Open Data MOOCs Stefan Dietze 10/03/14 http://linkededucation.org & http://linkeduniversities.org
Actually, how “open” is open educational data? Just a short while ago... Educational Data on the Web Open Educational Resource (OER) metadata & MOOC collections (e.g. OCW, OpenLearn, Merlot, Coursera) Competing Web interfaces (e.g. OAI-PMH, SOAP, REST) Competing metadata standards (e.g. IEEE LOM, ADL SCORM, DC…) & taxonomies & exchange formats (JSON, RDF, XML) Issues: heterogeneity & lack of interoperability Stefan Dietze 10/03/14
Actually, how “open” is open educational data? Just a short while ago... Linked (Open) Data Vision: well connected graph of open Web data W3C standards (RDF, SPARQL) to expose data, URIs to interlink datasets => cloud of interconnected datasets 32 billion triples (2011), crossing all sorts of domains Other incarnations: Google Knowledge Graph, schema.org, FB Open Graph… Educational Data on the Web Open Educational Resource (OER) metadata & MOOC collections (e.g. OCW, OpenLearn, Merlot, Coursera) Competing Web interfaces (e.g. OAI-PMH, SOAP, REST) Competing metadata standards (e.g. IEEE LOM, ADL SCORM, DC…) & taxonomies & exchange formats (JSON, RDF, XML) Issues: heterogeneity & lack of interoperability Pictures (c) by Paul Miller Stefan Dietze 10/03/14
A shorter while ago Bringing OER into the LOD landscape http://datahub.io/dataset/meducator Manually curated and automatically exported & enriched OER from variety of sources > 35000 triples so far > enrichments to DBpedia & Bioportal ontologies APIs used by several applications Automated data lifting & enrichment Stefan Dietze 10/03/14

Linked Data for Learning – How is it useful? Stefan Dietze 1. Linked Data for data sharing, enrichment and interpretation RDF, SPARQL & shared vocabularies to improve interoperability of learning/user data facilitate OER reuse vision across isolated platforms 2. Linked Data as body of knowledge for learning & education Vast amount of publicly available resources and data Dedicated OER and university data + „knowledge resources“ (from DBpedia to Slideshare) Interlinking educational Resources and the Web of Data – a Survey of Challenges and Approaches, Stefan Dietze, Salvador Sanchez-Alonso, Hannes Ebner, Hong Qing Yu, Daniela Giordano, Ivana Marenzi, Bernardo Pereira Nunes, Emerald Program: electronic Library and Information Systems, Volume 47, Issue 1 (2013). Linked Data for Open and Distance Learning, Mathieu d’Aquin, report for the Common Wealth of Learning, „HTTP-accessibility“ (SPARQL, URI-dereferencing) „Structure“ & „Semantics“ (=> shared/linked vocabularies) „Interlinked“ „Persistent“ 10/03/14 http://linkededucation.org & http://linkeduniversities.org
Success models: data & applications Stefan Dietze 10/03/14 18 LinkedUp Challenge to identify innovative tools & applications Evaluation methods and approaches “LinkedUp” – Linking Web Data for Education L Data curation Technology transfer & community-building Collecting & exposing open data of educational relevance => LinkedUp Data Catalog Profiling and linking of Web Data for education => educational data graph Disseminating knowledge & building communities (educators, computer scientists, data engineers) Gathering stakeholder feedback: use cases, and requirements European project aimed at advancing take-up of open data and related technologies http://linkedup-challenge.org/#usecases http://linkedup-project.eu/events http://www.linkedup-challenge.org/ http://data.linkededucation.org http://linkedup-project.eu

Too many/diverse datasets, too little information Stefan Dietze 10/03/14 ? ? ? Which datasets are useful & trustworthy for case XY (eg „learning about the solar system“) ? Which topics (eg „Astronomy“) are covered by dataset X? Which datasets offer videos (slides, publications, statistics etc)? ?? ?
Data curation and dataset profiling LinkedUp Dataset Catalog Stefan Dietze 10/03/14 Catalog of data (LinkedUp Catalog): classification of datasets according to resource types, disciplines/topics, data quality, accessability, etc Infrastructure for distributed/federated querying describes Which datasets are useful & trustworthy for case XY (eg „learning about the solar system“) ? Which topics (eg „Astronomy“) are covered by dataset X? Which datasets offer videos (slides, publications, statistics etc)?
