In this position paper, we illustrate how Linked Data can be effectively used in a Technology-enhanced Learning scenario. Specifically, we aim at using structured data to semi-automatically generate artifacts to support learning delivery and assessment: natural language facts, Q&A systems and quizzes, also used with a gaming favour, can be creatively generated to help teachers and learners to support and improve the learning path. Moreover, those artifacts can in turn be published on the Web as Linked Data, thus directly contributing to make the Web a global data space also for learning purposes.
