The TAPAS  (TEI Archiving, Publishing, and Access Service) project has received funding to begin development of the TAPAS Classroom, an international initiative to support teaching and learning the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) using TAPAS. TAPAS Classroom will extend the current project infrastructure to include features and services that will allow TAPAS users to store and share teaching materials, view TEI data in innovative ways, and support student encoding in a sandbox environment.
