Unified search of digital cultural content: Searching culture
To enhance the user experience and search and exploring capabilities of a Digital Cultural Aggregator Portal, the content must be homogenized and subject to validation, data clearing and semantic enrichment. Towards this task, EKT has developed an ecosystem consisting of an Aggregator of Cultural Heritage Content (http://searchculture.gr), a Metadata and Digital File Validation System and an Information System for Semantic Vocabularies and Contextual Enrichment (http://semantics.gr).

The value of providing content
The National Historical Museum is now in the digital era and is exploring the potential of openness in cultural data management.

A multi-modal approach for the development of Open Educational Material | The Case of the Onassis Cultural Centre
The re-use of open educational resources is often approached as a single trajectory and platform process. However, practice shows that their actual re-use happens in a rather fragmented and often anarchic fashion, which, nevertheless makes use of standard platforms that operate as islands of stability in a sea of constantly changing modes of content reuse. The objective of this talk is to show how the use of wikipedia, standard online platforms and open source software can be deployed in order to produce a consistent digital strategy and experience with regards to the re-use of open digital content.
