TEI By Example Launched

We’re very pleased to announce the completion and launch of TEI by
Example: http://www.teibyexample.org.

TEI By Example (TBE) 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. The tutorial materials are contextualised with a TBE
validator application, allowing you to test your TEI encoding as you type!

We hope you will consider using TEI by Example in your (online)teaching
and refer students of markup to these tutorials.
We also hope you will submit more examples of encoding for inclusion in TBE.

We’re eager to receive your comments and learn about your use of TEI by
example in (self-)teaching environments.

Please contact the editorial team with any feedback at teibyexample@kantl.be.

Funding for the project has been made available by the Association of
Literary and Linguistic Computing, the Centre for Computers and the
Humanities – King’s College London, UCL Centre for Digital Humanities, and
the Centre for Scholarly Editing and Document Studies of the Royal Academy
of Dutch Language and Literature.
