About the TEI by Example Project

2. Project Description

The original aims of the project were to undertake:

  • the creation and on-line delivery of a TEI by Example course for teaching TEI in higher education and workshops.
  • the creation and on-line delivery of a software toolkit for teaching text encoding
  • the documentation of the methodology, workflow, and findings of the project in a project report

The deliverables of the project were:

  • on-line tutorials TEI by Example
  • a printable PDF version of the tutorials TEI by Example
  • an on-line software toolkit for text encoding
  • a project report which could be published in the project reports section of LLC or DHQ, and on the ALLC website

The 2020 revision of the tutorials has:

  • Revised TBE website and content and refresh and update where needed.
  • Updated TBE module 8 on “Customising TEI, ODD, Roma” to reflect changes introduced with the “Pure ODD” approach since release 3.0.0 of the TEI Guidelines.
  • Investigation and setup of git workflow in preparation for this migration to a publicly available repository on GitHub or GitLab.
  • Adapted hosting infrastructure to accommodate translations into other languages.
  • Investigated a visual refresh of TBE accommodating responsiveness.
