What you’ll learn:

  • How to become creative with digital cultural heritage
  • What repositories, tools and APIs are available online
  • How to access and use them
  • How digital cultural heritage can be effectively and successfully reused
  • How to deal with Intellectual Property Rights in the context of reuse of digital cultural heritage

As the online availability of digital cultural heritage continues to grow, it becomes more and more important that users, from passive readers, learn to become active re-users. The mission of this course is to share the creative ways with which people use and re-use Europeana and digital cultural content, to demonstrate what Europeana can bring to the learning community, and to bring about the essential concept that cultural content is not just to contemplate, but to live and engage with.

The educational idea behind the E-Space MOOC is to lower barriers to the access and reuse of cultural heritage content on Europeana and similar sources, providing tutorials and trial versions of applications and tools alongside reading materials, useful tips and best practices gathered throughout the course of the project.
