Language Technology in the Digital Humanities 

About this course


The provisional final round of the MOOC "Language Technology in Digital Humanities" will start on May 20th, 2019. The course will then be paused on the Coursera platform, ie enrollments in the course will no longer be possible from this date. 

COURSE DESCRIPTION: Would you like to know what exactly the digitization of texts entails? Have you always wondered how texts in a corpus can be made optimally searchable? Are you wondering how texts can be enriched with linguistic information? Then this course is the right place for you! It provides an overview of the most important concepts and problems in digitizing and annotating written texts. In six thematic modules spread over six weeks, you will get to know relevant technologies and tools. Each module contains two to three videos (10-20 minutes), a quiz or a peer assessment as well as short background texts and further links on selected topics.

Who is this course for: This course is aimed at corpus linguists, humanities scholars and those interested in language who, based on a purely linguistic perspective, also dare a few steps into the world of digitization of texts and want to get to know the underlying technologies. You do not need any programming knowledge for this course. If you are interested in the digitization and annotation of texts, you are well prepared for this course. We look forward to treading these digital paths with you, which are becoming increasingly important in the humanities.
