During this Anymeta training two modules will be discussed: One for the advanced user and one for members of the editorial team. Each module consists of two blocks. Each block will combine theory with practical assignments and evaluations. At the end of the day we will have created a fictional project and placed it online succesfully.

Use the pink 'RSVP'-button to sign up for the training.


Advanced User Module

Block 1, Principles of Anymeta (9:30 to 10:30)

Discussion of the fundamentals of Anymeta with some examples from our portfolio. We will focus on the operation of Anymeta as a CMS. After this block, you'll understand the structure of Anymeta websites and what it takes to make it work. Some topics that will be discussed:

  • Community management system
  • "Anything is a thing"
  • Domain Model
  • Kinds, Types, Roles
  • Metadata and Matching
  • Open-CI

Block 2, Creating content in the front-end (10:30 - 13:00)

A semantic network, like Anymeta, is a network of meaningful relationships, which are made by people. In this block you, as an advanced user, will learn how to add value and meaning to your contributions by linking them in proper ways. We'll look at the possibilities of the front-end of the website. Some of the topics that will be addressed:

  • The structure of different pages
  • The role of text and images in list items
  • Copyright
  • Visibility and accessibility of contributions

Lunch: The lunch is provided by Mediamatic (13:00 - 15:00)

Editor Module

Block 3, The 'admin' (13:30 - 15: 00)

After having dealt with the front-end, it's time for the back-end of Anymeta websites. We call the back-end of Anymeta the Admin. With the back-end you have even more possabilites than in the front-end. Such as:

  • Create sets and listpublishes
  • Use the redirect & alternative uri
  • add/change relationships in the back-end
  • add a language version
  • change kinds / types
  • how to alias

Block 4, Structuring content (15:00 - 17:00)

In this section we'll look at categorizing and presenting content. We'll brainstorm on what the presentation of our project should be like. Together we'll create a theme navigation and organize it. We'll apply the knowledge gained from the previous blocks, and complete our project.
