*Introduction to Text Encoding*
Dates: September 6 - October 3
Instructor: John Russell
Credits: 1.5 CEUs or 15 PDHs
Price: $200

This course will introduce students to text encoding according to the Text
Encoding Initiative (TEI) Guidelines. Why should you care about text
encoding or the TEI Guidelines? The creation of digital scholarly texts is
a core part of the digital humanities and many digital humanities grants
and publications require encoding texts in accordance with the TEI
Guidelines. Students in this course will learn about the use-cases for text
encoding and get a basic introduction to the principles of scholarly
editing before moving on to learning some XML basics and creating a
small-scale TEI project using the XML editor oXygen.

John Russell is the Associate Director of the Center for Humanities and
Information at Pennsylvania State University. He has been actively involved
in digital humanities projects, primarily related to text encoding, and has
taught courses and workshops on digital humanities methods, including
"Introduction to Digital Humanities for Librarians."

is in an online forum environment.
