Learning through connecting: data management as a basis for meaningful use of legacy data

The project "Capture and Link" is a service project of the planned priority programme SPP 2143 "Entangled Africa". The aim of the planned Priority Programme is to generate very rich and varied data in a network of numerous projects, which contain information for common questions of the projects. These data are to be collected and made accessible centrally in the project "Capture and Link", regardless of their format and subject affiliation. The project thus comprises the organisation, design and implementation of data management and the long-term archiving of research data for all other projects of the SPP.



is an extension of the e-learning software ILIAS that allows teachers to select, explore, annotate and manage 3D objects from collections. Thus, students are provided with a lower-threshold access than before to research-relevant 3D objects as teaching material. The scenarios and application areas arising from the project presented here are relevant to a wide range of disciplines in several faculties.
