IE member Enayat participated in the LinkedUP project meeting that was held in Berlin during last Wednesday and Thursday. Our group was invited by Stefan Dietze, an old time collaborator and colleague in previous projects like LUISA, to show the developments carried out by the IE group in the framework of the Open Discovery Space project. The LinkedUP project aims to push forward the exploitation of the vast amounts of public, open data available on the Web, in particular by educational institutions and organizations. As the Linking e-learning data to the Linked Open Data cloud improves sharing as well as reusing of the elearning resource, linking Linkedup and ODS projects makes a lot of sense. Several possibilities of exposing ODS learning resouces as Linked Data have been discussed in the meeting. Enayat, as the ODS representative, shared his experiences on several projects and presented the Linked Data issues of Open Discovery Space in the LinkedUP meeting.
Linked Data exposure of ARIADNE data was also another topic which has been discussed during the meeting, as UAH is a member of ARIADNE project and responsible for adding Linked Data layer of its data as well.
