The purpose of the course is to give an insight into the basic storing and processing format of the texts of literature and digital humanities: TEI XML. The program was put together in a way to be suitable both for beginners and for a bit more experienced students, as well.

In the first theoretical module students can learn about the history and use of markup languages. After that, the basics of using XML (eXtensible Markup Language) format and DTD (Document Type Definition) will be mastered. Finally, the last module provides more insight and practice into the specifics and rules of TEI (Text Encoding Initiative) coding.
After completing the course, students will be able to use the main text storage tool in digital humanities, giving them the opportunity to engage in practical work such as digital philology or text publishing.

Conditions for completing the course:

Students will be graded through minor assignments completed during the course and a final own work. Through Microsoft Teams, once a week questions regarding the course material or the assignments can
be discussed.
