DEiXTo was recently used successfully in the context of the TEL-MAP FP7 project in order to scrape the metadata of several European Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) projects from the CORDIS website as well as from the European Commission website.

TEL-MAP is a Coordination and Support Action funded by the European Commission under the Technology-Enhanced Learning programme. It is coordinated by the Brunel University of London and it focuses on exploratory / roadmapping activities for fundamentally new forms of learning to support the adoption of those new forms, via awareness building and knowledge management on the results of EU RTD projects in TEL and socio-economic evaluations in education.
Currently, the TEL-MAP team is building a new portal called "Learning Frontiers". This portal aspires to become a widely recognized, single-point-of-access source of information for all European TEL. Among others, it offers a Projects space that contains a lot of detailed information about numerous TEL EU-funded projects and their participants (essentially the data scraped from the target web pages). It is really worth noting that through using the geo-location info of each participant / organization, Learning Frontiers provides an interactive map of TEL in Europe!
We are really happy that we have helped the Learning Frontiers portal a little towards the implementation of its ambitious vision to increase EU-wide and global dissemination, adoption and impact of EU TEL. We wish them best success!
