Abstract

The value of semantic technologies in the context of learning and teaching has often been associated with the use of reasoning to support learning processes. This paper discusses the value of linked data in addressing data interoperability and integration across higher education institutions and repositories. This value is related to higher education challenges and a proposal on deploying linked data in higher education is presented and discussed.
