Abstract

While the publication of linked open data has gained momentum in large organisations, the way for users of these organisations to engage with these data is still unclear. Here, we demonstrate a mobile application called wayOU (where are you at the Open University) which relies on the data published by The Open University (under data.open.ac.uk) to provide social, location-based services to its students and members of sta. An interesting aspect of this application is that, not only it consumes linked data produced by the University from various repositories, but it also contributes to it by creating new connections between people, places and other types of resources.
