Linked Data Competency Index  :  Mapping The Field for Teachers And Learners 

took a walk through the Linked Data Competency Index (LDCI) online resource (with the 600+ resources) and explained its editorial principles. 

The LDCI provides a concise and readable map of concepts and skills related to the practices and technologies of Linked Data for the benefit of interested learners and their teachers. 

The webinar showed how the social platform Github will be used to crowdsource its future maintenance and synchronize translations, such as the Chinese version of the Index. 

The webinar concluded with a look at how the Linked Data for Professional Education (LD4PE) project website has used competencies to catalog Web tutorials and YouTube videos that are helpful for learning about Linked Data.
