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. 


Goals:
•	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
datasets.   


•	Provide SPARQL endpoints for data


•	Prepare and built out to 5-Star linked data
(RDF/XML/JSON/schema.org)


--------------------------------------------------

You are invited to support the creation of this group:

and people can join to begin work.
