An illustrated account of the work done by the Ensemble Project in the LJMU Contemporary Dance setting has been accepted by the World Wide Web Consortium — the body that drafts and promotes web technology standards — as a case study for demonstrating potential applications of the Semantic Web. The case study joins almost fifty case studies and use cases from universities and organisations around the world, including the BBC, NASA, IBM and Renault.
Case studies and use cases offer short, non-technical, descriptions demonstrating how the Semantic Web can be used to solve a wide range of problems; they are intended to explain and promote the Semantic Web to project managers and other interested parties outside of the Computer Science community. The Ensemble case study was the first to describe such an impact in the arts; it highlights the beneficial changes the Semantic Web and linked data approaches made to teaching practice in the dance setting, including a description of the online reflection tool created by Ensemble, along with an outline of the research journey the project took to develop it.
