Linked Open Data (featuring Omeka S) (grad students only)
Fri, November 17 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
The semantic web is a growing network of information that makes the meaning of data more machine-readable. Linked open data increases discoverability on the semantic web and connects new ideas across different topics and websites. Our workshop will cover basic concepts of linked open data, including principles, terminology, and vocabulary schemas. We will also introduce Omeka S, which allows users to build relationships within their own databases and with external entities using an accessible interface.
Graduate students can request their own Omeka S projects by receiving approval from a faculty member (who will be officially responsible for the website) and submitting a ticket under the Tech Help tab.
This workshop is part of The Office of Information Technology’s series of instructional technology workshops designed especially for graduate students looking to broaden their knowledge and skills with digital tools for the classroom, research, and professionalization. It is organized by Heather V. Hill, graduate student liaison for Fordham’s Educational Technology team.
