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.

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.
