Linked Data, a term coined by Sir Tim Berners-Lee, is a way of publishing data online so it can be easily interlinked and managed using semantic queries. On this course you will learn the basics of Linked Data and the Semantic Web - exploring how this new Web of Data isn’t about creating a big collection of standalone datasets, but is instead about using a common format to ensure data is interrelated. This course will introduce you to the knowledge and skills around using Linked Data – skills that are in increasing demand as the Web evolves from a Web of Documents to a Web of Data. The Web and Internet Science Group at the University of Southampton is playing a leading role in the European Data Science Academy (EDSA) project. This course is one of a number being produced by the project, and aims to provide you with an introduction to Linked Data that you can use to prepare for further training opportunities.
