The Immersive Learning Research Network (iLRN) is a burgeoning global network 
of researchers and practitioners collaborating to develop the scientific, 
technical, and applied potential of immersive learning. Its annual conference 
is the premier scholarly event focusing on advances in the use of virtual 
reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR), and other extended 
reality (XR) technologies to support learners and learning. Leading scholars 
and professionals operating in formal education settings as well as those 
representing diverse industry sectors will converge on the historic and 
picturesque coastal city of San Luis Obispo, California for iLRN 2020, where 
they will share their research findings, experiences, and insights; network and 
establish partnerships to envision and shape the future of XR and immersive 
technologies for learning; and contribute to the emerging scholarly knowledge 
base on how these technologies can be used to create experiences that educate, 
engage, and excite learners.

[MCN-L] What can an art museum learn from Wikidata?

2020-02-14 Thread Samantha Weald
Hi everyone, a little Valentine's Day treat for you! We've opened up our
financial aid applications for our upcoming Wikidata courses. More below!

What happens when a museum like the Art Institute of Chicago contributes to
one of the world’s largest linked data repositories? In our Wikidata
courses, we teach participants how "linked data allows for powerful queries
to reveal insights about artist gender breakdown, materials used,
exhibition information, and provenance of works. By having this data on
hand, museums can provide a fuller picture of their works and strive for
better representation within their collection."

Whether you work for a library, museum, or archive our online Wikidata
courses provide you with a direct chance to develop equitable and inclusive
data for your institution and the larger Wikidata ecosystem. Plus, we
have additional
financial aid available for our beginner and intermediate Wikidata courses.
So if your friends, colleagues, graduate students (or yourself!) would like
to participate but don't have access to professional development funds, I
encourage you to apply before next Fridays deadline! (Financial aid details
are available in the registration forms linked from each landing page
below.)

Join the Open Data Movement | Online | March 5 – April 9, 2020
