The Learning Registry - abstract
The Learning Registry makes federal learning resources easier to find, easier to access and easier to integrate into learning environments wherever they are stored -- around the country and the world. This will enable teachers, students, parents, schools, governments, corporations and non-profits to build and access better, more interconnected and personalized learning solutions needed for a 21st-century education. The Learning Registry project is an informal collaboration among several federal agencies that share the same goal: making federal learning resources and primary source materials easier to find, access and integrate into educational environments.
Key members of the collaboration are:
- The Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative (ADL) from Office of the Under Secretary of Defence for Personnel and Readiness (OUSD P&R)
- The Office of Educational Technology at the US Department of Education
