Logainm.ie, the bilingual database of Irish place names has recently been enhanced by the Linked Logainm project by incorporating Linked Data. The newly available Linked Logainm dataset provides Irish place name data in structured, computer-readable formats for use by web developers, computer scientists, the heritage community, information professionals and more. The linked dataset is now ready for use by Irish information professionals in the library, museum and archives domains.
Data to be used for this concerns of course information about learning opportunities, including for example (from our data catalogue) about courses in various universities (e.g., The Open University, The University of Aalto, or degrees in the UK from the Key Information Set), about open education resources (e.g., from Organic Edunet, mEducator, the Open Courseware consortium, or specific organisations) or any other resource that might help to learn about a certain topic (e.g., videos/podcasts from The University of Southampton or reading resources from the TERENCE reading comprehension dataset). The challenge here is of course to connect and compare such heterogeneous resources with each other and with the learner’s context.
