Join the first LinkedUp Challenge: VeniThe first of three LinkedUp Challenges is now open! 'Come' participate in the Veni competition, which promotes the innovative use of linked and open data in an educational context.
Researchers, students, developers and businesses...and anyone interested is invited to the first installment of the LinkedUp Challenge: 'Veni'. Participants must build prototypes, demos and innovative tools that exploit, use, integrate or analyse large scale web data for educational use.
Handsome prizes will be awarded to the best ideas and solutions regarding the use of linked and open data in education. But that's not the only incentive — work with a large, documented repository of linked datasets that the LinkedUp team is putting together, offering access to resources that have thus far not been made public. The competition also serves as a great excuse to network with a large community of practitioners, researchers, and more.
The LinkedUp team has already identified and connected many educational and non-educational resources, but participants can also use and connect their own material or other data sources. Anyone is free to showcase their creativity and solutions as long as the application is relevant to education in the broadest sense of the word.
