The lecturer asserts that the Web can be viewed as a vehicle for knowledge democracy. Several technologies have been developed to support knowledge transfer via the Web, including languages like RDF, OWL and SKOS. He discusses the effectiveness of these technologies, as well as methods and techniques that can be used for practical Web-based knowledge engineering. He illustrates this with application examples in the domain of digital heritage collections.

- Distills results taken from large datasets so that visualizations are human-friendly.
- Uses publicly available tools to visualize data.
- Knows HTML5 (2014) as a version of HTML extended with support for complex web and mobile applications.
- Knows Simple Knowledge Organization System, or SKOS (2009), an RDF vocabulary for expressing concepts that are labeled in natural languages, organized into informal hierarchies, and aggregated into co
- Understands that SKOS can express a flexibly associative structure of concepts without enabling the more rigid and automatic inferences typically specified in a class-based OWL ontology.
