NISO/NFAIS Joint Virtual Conference: Connecting the Library to the Wider World: Successful Applications of Linked Data

  1. 1. Hyperconnected Learning: linked data at Pearson Connecting everything together will allow us to get better insights into learning and create super smart applications, products and services that improve learners lives. Paul Appleby, Content Architect Madi Weland Solomon Director of Semantic Platforms & Metadata Enterprise Architecture & Core Platforms, Pearson plc “We’re shifting the focus from outputs to outcomes.” Kelli Millwood Efficacy, Analytics, and Improvement NISO/NFAIS Joint Virtual Conference: Connecting the Library to the Wider World: Successful Applications of Linked Data December 3, 2014
  2. 2. Linked data is not a solution, but a means towards a solution: start small • Iterate • Educate • Escalate Hyperconnected Learning: Pearson. NISO/NFAIS Joint 3 Virtual Conference 2014-12-03
  3. 3. Evolution of linked data How we learned to walk at Pearson “Science Taxonomy Project” POC Q3 - 2011 “Asset Enrichment Pipeline” POC Q4 - 2011 “Enterprise Asset Enrichment Pipeline” Q1&Q2 - 2012 Smart Content “Linked Data Content Services” 2014 Hyperconnected Learning: Pearson.

  6. 6. What is Linked Data? Linked Data is a method of publishing structured data so that it can become more useful. At bottom, all data can be expressed as statements of the form: <subject> <predicate> <object> . Example: Alice has-mother Susan Alice has-father John Alice knows Bob Bob has-mother Martha Bob has-father Richard Bob has-birthdate "1994-08-07"
  7. 7. Example: This data can be visualized as a connected graph Alice has-mother Susan Alice has-father John Alice knows Bob Bob has-mother Martha Bob has-father Richard bob has-birthdate "1994-08-07"
  8. 8. It becomes “linked” data when every entity in the graph is identified by a URL.
  9. 9. To get more information about something, you simply download a description of that thing from its URL. For instance, you might download this description of Alice... <http://example.com/Alice> :father <http://example.com/John> . <http://example.com/Alice> :mother <http://example.com/Sue> . <http://example.com/Alice> :knows <http://example.com/Bob> . This description contains links to related things. Given his URL, you can now download information about Bob. <http://example.com/Bob> :father <http://example.com/Dick> . <http://example.com/Bob> :mother <http://example.com/Martha> . <http://example.com/Bob> :birthDate "1994-08-07" .

Reporting and metrics Search for learning outcomes and view related curriculum Select a curriculum and view other curricula and their relationships Determine commonalities and gaps Create a trusted preferred source of curriculum data Provide visibility and access to curriculum data as a service Define alignment between selected curriculum Keep relationships persistent Review and correct Ingest curriculum from multiple sources Access curriculum data in an open format Manage curriculum to whatever extent is needed Evaluate Discover Share Relate Manage m e t r i c s

  21. 21. How? Domain driven design. • A software methodology that bases complex designs on a model of the business or organisational domain. • Initiates a creative collaboration between technical and domain experts to iteratively refine a conceptual model.

  22. 22. Evolving Domain Driven Design at Pearson • How do we capture more structured data from the editorial process? • Which is the right data to capture? • How do we go about maximising the value of that data? 1: initial simplified model 2: the curriculum ontology
