John McCrae and Thierry Declerck gave an introductory lecture on "Introduction to Linked Open Data in Linguistics" at the 31st European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information (ESSLLI) in Riga, Latvia, which was attended by over 30 students from a range of backgrounds in computer science, philosophy and linguistics. The lecture series covered topics starting with an introduction to RDF and linked data technologies, creating and using ontologies using Protégé, the OntoLex-Lemon model for the representation of lexical data, models for representing corpora annotations and finally guidelines for publishing on the linked open data cloud. The lectures have been recorded and are now available on YouTube.
