How a little structure goes a long way in educational content

This talk describes three case studies where we have applied controlled vocabularies to help with information discovery and re-use. These examples stretch across the 15 years and highlight some of the developments in thinking about linked data and education during that time.

UnifiedViews in COMSODE pilot projects

In my talk, I would like to introduce 2 pilot projects we ran as part COMSODE EU FP7 project with Slovak Environment Agency (SEA) and Czech Trade Inspection Authority (CTIA). The goal of these pilot projects was to help these organisations to transform and publish their selected datasets as (linked) open data. I will also demonstrate UnifiedViews, an ETL for RDF data, and detail its role in Open Data Node, the publication platform prepared in COMSODE project.


Semantic Web technologies to increase Web Experience Management during Web Information Portal fruition

As well known, Semantic Web technologies make available a set of facilities for enabling interoperability among software agents in the Web, providing a common framework that allows data to be shared and reused across applications. From the other hand, the related data formats (as XML and RDF) constitute a suitable mean to represent in a machine understandable way the knowledge connected to the great amount of semi-structured or unstructured documents accessible by the Web itself. Following the Semantic Web vision, the last generation of Content Management System (CMS) focuses their attention on data (information embedded in a document) rather than content (the document itself), thus shifting from a “content centric” approach to a “data centric” one. To this goal, they incorporate semantic annotation modules in order to derive useful information from the managed contents and deal with their semantics, leveraging the Linked Data paradigm to relate extracted concepts with the available external knowledge (often coded in the shape of vocabularies, taxonomies or ontologies) depending on the considered application scenario. In this presentation we describe the design and development of a novel Semantic Content Management System, representing our solution to the content management processing problem. In particular, we provide a CMS combined with a fully featured semantic metadata repository with reasoning capabilities, based on reusing different Open Source solutions (Apache Stanbol, Apache SOLR, Openlink Virtuoso...).
