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 RDF and the Semantic Web
- RDFa1.1 (RDFa and RDFa Lite) and RSS
- Linked Data
- The SPARQL Fundamentals I - the Semantic Web in Action

We are offering some optional follow-up classes in addition: The SPARQL
Fundamentals II, The SPARQL Fundamentals III, Introduction to JSON and
Structured Data, and JSON-LD Fundamentals.
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 2017. 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.
