In: Peggy Bockwinkel; Thierry Declerck; Sandra Kübler; Heike Zinsmeister (Hrsg.). Proceedings of the Workshop on Teaching NLP for Digital Humanities (Teach4DH 2017). Workshop on Teaching NLP for Digital Humanities (Teach4DH-17), located at International Conference of the German Society for Computational Linguistics and Language (GSCL 2017), September 12, Berlin, Germany, Vol. 1918, ISBN ISSN 1613-0073, CEURS, RWTH Aachen University, 9/2017.


In this short paper we report on experiences gained from bachelor and master theses, and from a series of software projects conducted in cooperation with the Department of Computational Linguistics of the Saarland University. Those bachelor/master theses and software projects were dealing with the application of Natural Language Processing and Semantic Web technologies to the representation and analysis of folktales. Data, codes and results of the software projects have been made available in various repository management services, like GitLab, GitHub or Bitbucket. We think that it will be important to discuss the design of such openly accessible repositories in order to ensure their re-usability and further extensions across various educational institutions.
