Open Educational Data - Datasets and APIs (Athens Green Hackathon 2012)

  1. 1. Linked Data for Education – Datasets & APIs Stefan Dietze - Green Hackathon, 14 December, Athens, Greece -
  2. 2. TEL data vs Linked Open Data Linked Data for Education Linked Open Data Relevant knowledge and data  Vision: well connected graph of open Web data  Publications: ACM, PubMed, DBLP (L3S), OpenLibrary  W3C standards (RDF, SPARQL) to expose data, URIs  (Cross-)domain knowledge & resources: BioPortal, historic to interlink datasets artefacts in Europeana, Geonames, DBpedia, Freebase, …  => vast cloud of interconnected datasets  Media resource metadata: BBC, Flickr, …  Crossing all sorts of domains  32 billion triples (September 2011) Explicit educational data  University Linked Data: eg The Open University UK, http://data.open.ac.uk, Southampton University, …  OER Linked Data: mEducator Linked ER ( http://ckan.net/package/meducator), Open Learn LD  Schemas: LRMI (http://www.lrmi.net/), mEducator OER schema (http://purl.org/meducator/ns) ⇒ http://linkededucation.org; ⇒ http://linkeduniversities.org
  3. 3. Early work: educational service integration  SmartLink: Linked Data registry of (educational) datasets / stores and their APIs  Discovery and lifting of educational data out of heterogeneous repositories  Transformation of heterogeneous data formats (XML, JSON...) and schemas (eg. IEEE LOM, Dublin Core) into RDF (pre-requisite for LOD compliancy) ⇒ http://ckan.net/package/smartlink & http://purl.org/smartlink Data/services integration & retrieval/search APIs Green Hackathon 2012 Stefan Dietze 3
  4. 4. Early work: educational data integration ⇒ http://linkededucation.org/meducator Data/services integration & retrieval/search APIs Linked Educational Resources Green Hackathon 2012 Stefan Dietze 4
  5. 5. Dereferencable resource URIs tele-TASK Symposium 2012 Stefan Dietze 5
  6. 6. Data so far: SmartLink/mEducator in LOD cloud  http://ckan.net/package/smartlink  > 2000 triples so far  > 300 links to iServe  APIs (=> wiki) used by several applications  http://ckan.net/package/meducator  > 35000 triples so far  > 1000 links to DBpedia & Bioportal ontologies  APIs (=> see wiki) used by 4 applications Green Hackathon 2012 Stefan Dietze 6
  7. 7. TEL data vs Linked Open Data Challenges  Still limited take-up (applications usually focused on small set of datasets)  Key issues  Scalability and robustness (distributed data access & retrieval, Big Data integration)  Data quality (heterogeneous providers, lack of trust)  Legal and licensing issues  Lack of benchmarks and evaluation Green Hackathon 2012 Stefan Dietze 7
  8. 8. “LinkedUp” Support Action Linking Web Data for Education Project – Open Challenge in Web-scale Data Integration  EC Support Action, kickstarted in November 2012 => http://linkedup-project.eu Goals  Push forward adoption of Web data/Linked Data in educational context  Drive technological advancement of Web data integration technologies Approach  Open data competition (initial calls expected early 2013) incl. technical, legal and financial support  Open data curation ! Partners + network of associated institutions (eg BBC, Commonwealth of Learning, Talis UK, …) Green Hackathon 2012 Stefan Dietze 8
  9. 9. LinkedUp data curation Linked Education Cloud & Linked Education Graph Educational data gathering - community-approach: Linked Education cloud  “LinkedUp/Linked Education cloud” as subset of LOD cloud  CKAN – “The DataHub” (ckan.net, most important data registry) for data collection (analog to Linked Open Data approach)  Dedicated group (“linked-education”) for cataloging educational datasets Educational Data Educational data integration & infrastructure: Linked Education graph  Linked Education cloud => Linked Education graph & dataset  Integration of (selected) datasets into coherent (RDF) dataset  Infrastructure, unified (SPARQL) endpoint & APIs => http://linkededucation.org Green Hackathon 2012 Stefan Dietze 9

  11. 11. Linked Education graph & dataset(s) http://data.linkededucation.org/ns/linked-education.rdf ? <dc:title> <akt:has-title> OER VideoLecture Publication LinkedUniversities http://data.linkededucation.org/.... (details at the end) educational videos  6 million distinct (but linked) resources  97 million RDF triples  21.6 GB of data Green Hackathon 2012 Stefan Dietze 11

  13. 13. Entity enrichment => disambiguation & correlation Via DBpedia/Freebase <led:Resource-BBC-519215> … <led:title>…gravitating…</led:title> … </led:Resource-BBC-519215> <led:Resource-OpenLearn-2139393292> … <led:title>…laws of gravity…</led:title> … </led:Resource-OpenLearn-2139393292> Green Hackathon 2012 Stefan Dietze 13
  14. 14. Linked Education graph & dataset(s) Green Hackathon 2012 Stefan Dietze 14
  15. 15. Linked Education graph & dataset(s) Enabling cross-dataset queries  Example resource: => http://data.linkededucation.org/resource/led/92C8A5E7-7B4D-12A6-F4F2-76A6A8DC7C0A  Example query (schema alignment & categorisation): SELECT ?resource ?title WHERE { ?resource led:title ?title FILTER regex(?title, "linear equations", "i")} ⇒ returns 1102 resources from different datasets: 659 DBLP items, 397 ACM publications, 10 LinkedUniversities educational videos  Example query (disambiguation & correlation): SELECT distinct ?entity WHERE {?entity led:hasEnrichmentContext ?dbp_context. ? dbp_context rdf:type led:EnrichmentContext. ?dbp_context led:hasEnrichment <http://data.linkededucation.org/ontology/Enrichment/Gravitation>} ⇒ returns 5 resources (LinkedUniversities, mEducator, BBC) enriched with DBpedia concept Gravitation (even though their descriptions refer to "gravity" or "gravitational" or "laws of gravity").

  16. 16. How to access the data (1/2) Registries and federated access to data CKAN – The DataHub  THE public registry for open Web datasets (almost 5000 distinct datasets)  CKAN: http://thedatahub.org; LOD group: http://datahub.io/group/lodcloud Linked Education dataset  Over 21 GB /6 million educationally relevant resources  SPARQL endpoint: http://data.linkededucation.org/openrdf-sesame/repositories/linked-learning [-selection]?query  Schema: http://data.linkededucation.org/ns/linked-education.rdf  Example resource: http://data.linkededucation.org/resource/led/92C8A5E7-7B4D-12A6-F4F2-76A6A8DC7C0A SmartLink  SmartLink dataset: registry of educationally relevant APIs => http://ckan.net/package/smartlink, http://purl.org/smartlink  SPARQL: http://smartlink.open.ac.uk/smartlink/sparql 2012 Green Hackathon Stefan Dietze 16
