Subject: [DHIG] Certificate in XML and RDF-Based Systems


Certificate in XML and RDF-Based Systems



In this 6-course certificate program, you will gain competency as a coder in XML and RDF-based systems that create, transform, manage, and disseminate content and metadata. Typically, these are the structures at the heart of content management systems, repositories, and digital libraries, as well as the upcoming BIBFRAME. Topics covered include XML fundamentals, XPath, DTDs and Schemas, standard markup languages, XSLT and Xquery, the semantic web, RDFa and RDFa Lite, RSS, ontologies and linked data, and the SPARQL semantic query language and protocol.


Courses in this series:


- Introduction to XML

- Transforming and Querying XML with XSLT and Xquery

- Introduction to the Semantic Web

- RDFa1.1 (RDFa and RDFa Lite) and RSS

- Ontologies and Linked Data

- The SPARQL Fundamentals I - the Semantic Web in Action


Links to full course descriptions are here:


We are offering an optional 7th class, The SPARQL Fundamentals II, with a third SPARQL course and additional courses in XSLT and XQuery to be added soon.


These courses work best if taken in sequence, as the sequence builds on knowledge gained, but we have no formal prerequisites in place. If you need to take them out of sequence, feel free to contact us about your situation.


You can register for all six courses in the certificate program, at a 10% discount ($945 for the six courses). The "Register" button on the web page for the series will register you for the sequence of classes that starts in August 2016. You can register for individual classes as well, at $175.

Read an interview with Dr. Chavez about this series of courses:



These are online classes that are taught asynchronously, meaning that participants do the work on their own time as their schedules allow. The classes do not meet together at any particular times, although the instructor may set up optional sychronous chat sessions. Instruction includes readings and assignments in one-week segments. Class participation is in an online forum environment.


You can register through the first week of instruction of the first class. The "Register" button on the website goes to our credit card payment gateway, which may be used with personal or institutional credit cards. (Be sure to use the appropriate billing address). If your institution wants to pay using a purchase order, please contact us by email to make arrangements: [log in to unmask]
