WebProtege 2.0 is a brand new web-app for collaboratively creating lightweight Semantic Web ontologies. We designed WebProtege to enable the fast and easy creation of these ontologies through the use of simple forms and intelligent auto-completion for describing classes and individuals. A set of powerful collaborative tools lie at the core of WebProtege and include support for semantic threaded discussions, entity watches, and revision based change tracking. Many attendees may be familiar with the Protege tool which has provided ontology-editing capabilities to its more than 200,000 registered users. While various desktop versions of Protege have been very successful and have served many users well, WebProtege 2.0 offers a fresh approach that makes it more attractive for users who are not familiar with OWL and want to develop simple lightweight Semantic Web ontologies. Ultimately, WebProtege 2.0 provides a customizable user interface that shields its users from the perceived complexity of OWL.
Topics covered in this tutorial are:
- User interface: Editing classes, properties and individuals using lightweight simple forms
- Customization: Creating custom forms and layouts for groups of users, such as domain, classification, or OWL experts
- Social collaborative features: Notes, discussions, watches, change summaries
- Social version control features: Change tracking and revisions, and change discussion
- Sharing and publishing: Built-in tools for publishing and releasing ontologies
