Report writing is the most challenging aspect in teaching Academic English. In addition to linguistic skills, students need to possess several transferable skills to accomplish such type of writing. We believe that to enhance both language proficiency and needed skills a small-scale research should be conducted by students. This written assignment requires students to communicate the message clearly, to provide logical arguments, to write in an appropriate format and style, to incorporate sources, to avoid plagiarism and follow a certain referencing system. In this presentation, we aim to share our experiences in developing report writing following several stages of its organization and designing syllabus (learning outcomes, assessment and content).

The capability of incorporating data from different sources into the decision making process is, nowadays, essential for Business Intelligence (BI) applications. Huge amounts of data available on the Web call for more active use of these data to provide richer insights. However, due to the amount and complexity of data available on the Web, incorporation and utilization of these data pose challenges for technologies that were shaped for storing and manipulating structural data. Thus, our research presented the approach aimed at optimizing analytical queries over Resource Description Framework (RDF) sources. The research focused on data integration and data processing techniques to enable efficient execution of analytical SPARQL queries in the Semantic Web.
