The Open Content Toolkit highlights openly licensed digital resources and content from around the world and encourages educators to use them in the classroom. We interview its creator, Europeana Education community member Theo Kuechel, about how the Toolkit can be used by teachers and the inspiration that he draws from Europeana.
Europeana’s APIs allow people to build applications that use the wealth of our collections and Europe’s cultural heritage. Viziel, a platform which has used these APIs to encourage the discovery of digitised cultural heritage objects, shows the breadth of what they can achieve. Jolan Wuyts interviews the platform creator, Avigail Soloveychik to find out more about the platform and process of building it.
With lowered barriers to access and the development of new practices for Artificial Intelligence (AI), it’s no surprise that AI-related activities in the cultural heritage sector are increasing. In this post, we are delighted to introduce the winning projects from EuropeanaTech’s first Challenge for Europeana AI/ML Datasets!
The Khalili Collections comprises eight collections of unique artefacts and art works, which have been digitised and the highlights made available to the public online. Douglas McCarthy spoke with Artistic Director Waqas Ahmed about their new partnership with Europeana.
