This poster describes a project under development to create an online environment in support of students and professionals in libraries, museums, and archives for learning the principles and practices of Linked Data. The environment envisioned includes instructional resources for personal study and use as supporting learning resources in formal and informal teaching and training. The project will work at the intersection of a number of current threads in support for anytime, anywhere teaching and learning: (1) the rapid develop of instructional components in the form of microtutorials as seen in the Kahn Academy; and (2) the developing focus in education on organization of learning resources based on the competencies and learning outcomes those resources enable. The project will build on the outcomes of a one-year planning grant from IMLS to engage educators, trainers, technologists and application developers in envisioning such an environment.
