Batas waktu: 27 Juni 2013
Awards: 1st prize – 2000 EUR.
2nd + 3rd prize – 1000 EUR. 5 runner up prizes worth 200 EUR each
We’re inviting you to design and build innovative and robust prototypes and demos for tools that analyse and/or integrate open web data for educational purposes, and have compiled a catalogue of data sets to get you started.
The idea is to mash up the vast amount of material and data on the internet that can be used in education, ranging from course data, lecture slides, and online courses to Wikipedia articles and YouTube videos.
You might design a tool for combining datasets and visualising them in interesting new ways, or perhaps develop a search engine that combines search results from different libraries. Please see our use cases if you are looking for further inspiration.
Alternatively, you may already have an idea that you’ve started developing and we’re keen to help you take this further.
The competition is open to anyone around the world who likes mashing up data or creating new and interesting tools and applications. We’re especially keen to see startups get involved
- 1st prize – 2000 EUR
- 2nd + 3rd prize – 1000 EUR
- 5 runner up prizes worth 200 EUR each.
The second competition will launch in November 2013, and the third in May 2014. Please sign up to our mailing list for further updates.
HOW TO APPLY
Your prototypes and demos will need to be submitted by 27 June 2013.
The demo should be available to the review panel, and we encourage publicly accessible demos and open source code to be made available.
You can choose between two alternatives when submitting your application. You can either submit a paper (following the Word template) via EasyChair, or you fill out the submission form which asks you to define how your prototype fits the evaluation criteria. As part of the submission, you will also be expected to write a 200 word abstract which will be published on this website after the submission deadline. The method by which you submit will not affect your chances for winning.
