Increase Equity – All students have access to high quality learning materials that have the most up-to-date and relevant content because openly licensed educational resources can be freely distributed to anyone.
Save Money – Switching to educational materials that are openly licensed enables schools to repurpose funding spent on static textbooks for other pressing needs, such as investing in the transition to digital learning. In some districts, replacing just one textbook has made tens of thousands of dollars available for other purposes.
Empower Teachers – Openly licensed educational resources empower teachers as creative professionals by giving them the ability to adapt and customize learning materials to meet the needs of their students without breaking copyright laws.
The Learning Registry is a new approach to capturing, connecting and sharing data about learning resources available online with the goal of making it easier for educators and students to access the rich content available in our ever-expanding digital universe.
What is the Learning Registry?
The Learning Registry is an open database where content creators and educators can share information about digital educational resources. The Learning Registry is based on the Learning Resource Metadata Initiative (LRMI) which provides common language for tagging resources according to quality, keyword, and alignment to curricular standards. The Learning Registry supports educator voices to help define which resources are most relevant or useful.
Openly Licensed Educational Resources
