This course will provide deeper dive into RDFa where we will explore how to mark up existing human-readable Web page content to express machine-readable data that can be utilized by search engines, metadata systems, and content management systems. Topics will include the relationship between RDFa and RDF graph data, the full RDFa Lite specification, and some of the more useful features of RDFa Core including how to support RDFa in HTML4 and HTML5. In addition, the course will cover RDF Site Summary or 'Really Simple Syndication (RSS) a method for easily distributing a list of headlines, update notices, and sometimes content to a wide audience, including mobile applications that organize those headlines and notices for easy reading and access.
This course can be taken as one of six courses needed to earn our Certificate in XML and RDF-Based Systems, and may assume a certain level of background knowledge covered in other courses in the sequence.
