The Open Linked Education Community Group has been proposed:


Pearson initiates this community group proposal with the W3C with the
goal of facilitating and creating a curated subset of Wikipedia data
that can be used for tagging educational content. 

•	Build a SUBJECT database from a curated subset of Wikipedia
(DBpedia) that can be used by institutions, instructors, and students,
to tag educational resources. 

•	Create a website presence similar to OpenCorporates
(http://opencorporates.com/) with API’s for reconciling with Google
Refine.  Provide tutorials on how to use Google Refine to access the
datasets.  Make access to the data easy.

•	Build relations and bridges to at least 3 existing open linked

•	Provide SPARQL endpoints for data

•	Prepare and built out to 5-Star linked data


You are invited to support the creation of this group:

Once the group has a total of five supporters, W3C launch the group
and people can join to begin work.
