Abstract

Linked Data is an emerging trend on the web with top companies promoting their own means of marking up data semantically, publishing and connecting data on Web. Despite the increasing prevalence of Linked Data, there are a limited number of applications that implement and take advantage of its capabilities, particularly in the domain of education. In this project we are using Semantic technologies to create a semantic data model for educational data, more specifically data about Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and publishing this data as linked data on the Web. Data from various MOOC providers is integrated and published as Linked Data. We present a web portal called MOOCLink that utilizes the data to discover and compare open courseware.
