Add openly licensed data sets to your MOOC

1. Browse the collections and add the selected content manually.

Explore Europeana Collections and the thematic collections on Art History, Music and First World War. For more niche content, you can also check the openly licensed data sets on various topics (from photography to fashion) available on Europeana Labs.

Use your preferred keywords and the different filters on the left to narrow your selection (by type of content, color, size, country, language, etc).

Add the selected assets to your MOOC by adding their url to the ‘External links box’ that you will find in the back end.


2. Tag your MOOC to activate the automatic searching feature.

EMMA platform has a specific way of tagging. To tag the course unit do not use common words, but try to use very specific and meaningful concepts. Tags will be used for automatic searching in Europeana, which is connected to Emma through API. 

The more specific the concepts used to tag the more pertinent will be the results found. Also it seems a good idea to insert tags both in your own language and in English for searchability reasons.

When possible, Europeana will retrieve the concerning documents together with a cover image.



In this example tags John_Dewey and Montessori-Maria are used.
