Educational Technology, v52 n6 p14-19 Nov-Dec 2012
In this article, the authors describe an open-source, open-data digital infrastructure for sharing information about open educational resources (OERs) across disparate systems and platforms. The Learning Registry, which began as a project funded by the U.S. Departments of Education and Defense, currently has an active international community working on use cases, pilot implementations, and specifications. This article discusses key benefits to using the Learning Registry, and introduces pioneering uses of the resource distribution network by some of the early adopters. (Contains 1 table.)
