Open Linked Education

 

MILES+

The Moodle module has been developed to allow resources to be created, uploaded, described, shared and searched across moodle users. It exploits SPARQL queries using a D2R server with the associated RDF responses complying with mEducator’s RDF schema. The D2R server is a tool for publishing relational databases on the Semantic Web. It enables RDF and HTML browsers to navigate the content of the database, and allows applications to query the database using the SPARQL query language.

MELINA+

The Drupal installation profile has been developed to allow resources to be created, uploaded, described, shared and searched. It exploits SPARQL queries using Drupal SPARQL endpoint functionality. Multiple endpoints (included internal and external) could be added in SPARQL registry and queried.

Linked Labyrinth+

The Open labyrinth module has been developed to allow specific resources (virtual patients, OSCE) to be described, shared and searched. It exploits SPARQL queries using a D2R server with the associated RDF responses complying with mEducator’s RDF schema.

Metamorphosis+

The mEducator 3.0 interface based on elgg, is used as one possible user interface to the general architecture of mEducator 3.0, showcasing the suitability of the Linked Services/Linked Data-based approach. As an interface, it extends the metamorphosis environment developed in the early phase of the project as a testbed for the metadata description scheme and content sharing mechanism, which serves also as a social network spanning two different dimensions: of humans (social) and of educational resources (objects linking and inheritance).
