It consists of links to a brief reading and two videos for users to watch before answering several short essay questions. The subject matter concerns how Europeana has adopted a Semantic Web model for its data and, conversely, the Linked Jazz Project's use of library metadata to enhance its services.

- Knows the origins of the World Wide Web (1989) as a non-linear interactive system, or hypermedia, built on the Internet.
