TEI by Example offers a series of freely available online tutorials walking individuals through the different stages in marking up a document in TEI (Text Encoding Initiative). Besides a general introduction to text encoding, step-by-step tutorial modules provide example-based introductions to eight different aspects of electronic text markup for the humanities. Each tutorial module is accompanied with a dedicated examples section, illustrating actual TEI encoding practise with real-life examples. The theory of the tutorial modules can be tested in interactive tests and exercises.

About the TEI by Example Project
Summary

The Centre for Scholarly Editing and Document Studies (CTB) of the Royal Academy of Dutch Language and Literature and the Centre for Data, Culture and Society of the University of Edinburgh have been pleased to revise and upgrade these tutorials for those wishing to learn TEI by Example. Featuring freely available online tutorials walking individuals through the different stages in marking up a document in TEI (Text Encoding Initiative), these online tutorials will provide examples for users of all levels. Examples are provided of different document types, with varying degrees in the granularity of markup, to provide a useful teaching and reference aid for those involved in the marking up of texts. These tutorials are relevant to the trainers of TEI, the students of TEI, the text encoding community and digital humanities community in general.

These tutorials were originally developed in 2006 by The Centre for Scholarly Editing and Document Studies (CTB) of the Royal Academy of Dutch Language and Literature, the Centre for Computing in the Humanities (CCH) of King’s College London, and the Department of Information Studies of University College London. Small project funding was received from the Association of Literary and Linguistic Computing (ALLC, now the European Association of Digital Humanities). A fully online version was made available on this website from Spring 2009. Since then, the tutorials have been used in Digital Humanities courses worldwide. In Summer 2020, the original team behind TEI by Example have fully updated these training materials, to align them to recent developments in the TEI guidelines, and to ensure that the infrastructure that hosts these tutorials is upgraded, with small grant funding from the Edinburgh Centre for Data, Culture and Society.

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.
