Competition

Following up the successful LinkedUp Veni, Vidi and Vici competitions (see http://linkedup-challenge.org/), LILE organizes the Linked Learning Competition.  In this competition, we seek prototypes and demos that use open and linked web data for educational purposes.

Submissions should showcase novelty with regards to their techniques, applications or educational purposes. A formal evaluation of your application is not required, but you should provide sufficient evidence to convince the program committee why your submission should win.

The Linked Learning competition accepts both ongoing work and prototypes exclusively created for the competition (the latter may be smaller scale and less mature than the former category). We compiled a catalogue of data sets to get you started – see http://data.linkededucation.org/linkedup/catalog/.

To enter the competition, submit a 3-page research paper (following the guidelines indicated below) via EasyChair to the competition category of the workshop (see submission details), in which you introduce your prototype or demo and provide a link to the online demonstration or download. Entries will be evaluated according to the following criteria:

  • Innovation: the demo should either showcase novel technologies or provide an educational innovation
  • Use of Data: the amount of data, the number of data sources, the way the data is processed, exploited and/or exposed
  • Take-Up and Usability: quality of the user interface, possibly backed up by evaluation results

Accepted submissions will be included in the proceedings and presented at the workshop. The winners will be selected by the program committee and workshop organisers, based on the received reviews and presentations during the workshops.
