Linking University Content for Education and Research Online
Working with groups of learners, researchers and practitioners based at the Open University, LUCERO will scope, prototype, pilot and evaluate reusable, cost-effective solutions relying on the linked data principles and technologies for exposing and connecting educational and research content. Core sets of resources considered within LUCERO are institutional repositories of research and educational material, including collaborations with the Faculty of Arts to scope, pilot, prototype and evaluate specific content exposure and linked data requirements of researchers working within the Arts and Arts History domains, providing experience on the exposure and connection of research data outputs, and demonstrating their concrete benefits. On the basis of such concrete experience, the project will aim to document business process changes required to achieve successful integrated institutional approaches to exposing educational and research content as linked data.
