Studying the Semantic Web Online

Cambridge Semantics, a Boston, MA based company that provides tools for creating Unified Information Applications, has created “Semantic University,” a very useful blog with a number of resources for learning the basics of the Semantic Web and Linked Data. Granted, it’s not actually a college course, but it’s a good start.

Speaking of college courses though, Dr. Margaret Kipp at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee School of Information Studies has put together some amazing courses that she’s shared online.  Seeing these kinds of courses and knowing that MLIS students are learning and fast applying their skills in the field of Linked Data within libraries, archives and museums gives me a lot of hope about the future.
