UI update: More details, please!

In our last sprint we decided to tweak the UI a little bit regarding our linked (open) data approach. All entries are stored as Linked Open Data, which means entries can be linked to other entries. You can now see all linked entries of an entry with a thumbnail and a small description (if provided in the linked entry). Take for example the entry “Open Education Italia”. All operators are now listed with description and image (if provided).

This is also handy for events – you can add presenters (if they have a profile on OER world map) and you can add yourself to an event as attendee.

Here it’s how it’s done if you want to add yourself to an event:

And here you can add a presenter to an event:

With this tweak we hope to enable a better user experience for you! Have fun with it!
