Language Technology in the Digital Humanities 

About this course

The last round of the MOOC "Language Technology in Digital Humanities" will start on May 20, 2019. The course will then be paused on the Coursera platform, meaning that enrollments in the course will no longer be possible from this date. However, the videos remain on our YouTube channel or the SwitchTube channel of the University of Zurich visible. The pause is primarily used to update and expand the course content and learning materials.
