Learning by Example: Designing and Developing Linked Data Application
Tharani, Karim
Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, v25 n4 p363-375 Oct 2016
According to constructivist theory of learning, new knowledge is learned on the basis of what is already known by learners. Thus for an emerging and transformative technology such as Linked Data to be learned, the technology must be made relevant for learners and must be compatible with their skillset. Designing and developing Linked Data applications challenges traditional web developers to think differently at every stage of the design and development process, starting from data modeling all the way to presenting data on the Linked Data web. Thus by building on existing skills and praxis of web developers, this article presents a case study of implementing Linked Data application in an academic library utilizing the traditional LAMP (Linux Apache MySQL and PHP) technology stack.
