Dear all,

Can you create a guidance system to help self-learner search and select
online courses that seem to best suit their needs? Could you find a way to
make research papers more accessible, and more easily read by less-advanced
learners? Or have you any thoughts on how teachers in the developing world
can benefit from the open resources freely available online?

Well, there is still time to enter the Veni Competition! Whilst there are
just 9 days remaining, that's enough time to pull together a prototype or
demo that analyses and/or integrates linked and open web data for
educational purposes.

With a total prize fund of 5,000 EUR, and our award ceremony taking place
at OKCon <http://okcon.org/> in Geneva on 17 September 2013, there is no
excuse not to enter!

Find out more on our blog <http://linkedup-project.eu/2013/06/17/524> or on
our website <http://linkedup-challenge.org/>.

Best wishes
