TEI By Example

TEI By Example tutorials are currently being moved to University of Edinburgh servers for the long-term sustainability of these training materials. Since 2009, the site’s tutorials have been used in Digital Humanities teaching worldwide.  

TEI by Example offers a series of free online tutorials that walk individuals through the different stages of marking up a document in XML using the standards developed by the Text Encoding Initiative.  

The Centre for Data, Culture & Society was pleased to provide small grant funding to the TEI By Example initiative, enabling an upgrade to its training materials and website infrastructure in Summer 2020. The upgrade undertaken by the original TBE team, Edward Vanhoutte and Ron Van den Branden with input from Melissa Terras, involved improvements to the website’s back end such as setting up a git workflow, allowing the site code to be shared in a publicly available repository, and incorporating infrastructure that can accommodate translation into other languages. 


The TEI By Example Advisory Committee has gained several new members following a call for applications in October 2020.
