What is “the Curriculum”?
- from a Swedish point of view

1 Basic Metadata Markup (RDF/XML)
1 Machine readable content and partly
machine processable*.
2 Detailed Metadata Markup (RDF/XML)
1 Making the content machine processable at
a detailed level (i.e. Objectives, central
content and concepts, and knowledge
criteria).
3 Web-friendly API:s (REST)
1 Content/service accessible for other Web
Services to be included into ”mashups”.
4 Tools for annotating curriculum and
syllabus
1 Annotate and add metadata to national and
local steering documents (e.g. for teachers,
subject experts, publishers).

Main objective(s) of the WILD-project
• Make the school curriculum digitally useful
– Machine-readable and machine-processable by the use of Semantic
Web technologies
– Hence: meaning for humans (i.e. students and teachers) as well as for
machines (i.e. software and services).
– Making the curriculum/steering Documents ”usable” by wiring other
digital services to the curriculum.
• Make the curriculum a part of schools “information ecology”
• Teachers should be able to actually use the steering
documents when teaching by connecting pedagogical
activities and resources to the steering documents.
• Provide tools to analyze visualize the curriculum (for
students, parents etc.)

Or in other words:
We want others to
create added value by
integrating and using
our Curriculum Service in
new digital (mashed-up) services
for schools!

Deliverables
• Digitized Steering/Curriculum Documents. Preferably in
a standardized data format. We are exploring the Curriculum
Exchange Format, CEF as the basis (but this is still a fairly
open issue...)
– Semantic Web technology: An RDF-binding to CEF for machine Processable
Semantics*.
• A methodology* for analyzing and adding metadata and
annotations to the Curriculum.
• Tools* for markup and annotation (for contributing to the
metadata ecology).
• A basic structural and descriptive markup* of the
curriculum documents. For others to use and improve.
• A set of API:s for interacting with the curriculum service.
I.e. an interface for other services to use.
• A couple of example services that builds upon those API:s
and the curriculum service.
*Currently ongoing work
