A new type of JSON-LD came up on our radar. Thus far we haven’t seen Google use this too much in the search engines, but I am guessing they will very soon.
Google actually has some fairly strict and easy requirements if you want to use this type of markup:
- only use it for educational content that fits the criteria for a course i.e. lectures, lessons, or modules in a particular subject
- the course must have ” an explicit educational outcome of knowledge and/or skill in a particular subject and/or topic, and be led by one or more instructors with a roster of students.”
- e.g. a general event such as “how to make eggs” is not a course
Each course has to have valid title, name etc.
They basically don’t want your sorry excuse for a blog post competing with a Harvard Business class.
