Topic Maps Portals for Real Life: Student projects at the University of Leipzig

In the context of a master module “Content and Knowledge Management” at University of Leipzig students had to participate in a practical course. The topic of this course was building Topic Maps portals. All students were completely new to the concept of Topic Maps. The course started with an introduction of Topic Maps and all relevant technologies (6 hours). The focus of the conceptual introduction was the emphasis of the linking and network effects which can be gained in topic maps. Inspired by the introduction all students had to develop a Topic Maps portal about a theme of their own choice within 10 weeks. All implementations base on the Ontopia OKS.
