  • Career and technical education (CTE) and workforce development at the secondary and postsecondary levels can benefit from using and participating with the Learning Registry. The Learning Registry is a national online platform that allows the educational community to publish and consume Open Educational Resources (OER). These are learning materials that are freely available to use, remix, and redistribute.1 The Learning Registry is an open source system that websites can integrate for specialized uses such as learning object repositories, resource portals, community portals, and learning management systems. It provides the technical infrastructure and community practices for sharing and transporting information about learning resources across systems.
  • You may ask, why not just use popular search engines to find education resources? Well, many resources available on the Internet are not posted by trusted sources. The resources may or may not be linked to learning standards and searching requires a lot of time to be spent finding and assessing the value and use of resources.
  • In order for secondary and postsecondary CTE and workforce development to fully realize the benefits of the Learning Registry, employability and technical standards need to be open and setup to allow for consistent tagging and OER need to be identified and aligned to these standards.

  • Using the Learning Registry allows educators, resource creators, publishers, curators and consumers to share:metadata that describes learning resources;ratings, reviews, comments, and other annotation data;alignments to educational standards;usage information such as favoriting, foddering, remixing, embedding, and other social metadata and paradata;as well as resource updates, relationships between resources, and other assertions. Sharing occurs across district and state lines and combines the need for trusted resources aligned to standards with social aspects of sharing information with peers about usability and student engagement.
  • In order for secondary and postsecondary CTE and workforce development to fully realize the benefits of the Learning Registry, employability and technical standards need to be open and setup to allow for consistent tagging and OER need to be identified and aligned to these standards.
  • Paradata is a specialized type of metadata which describes how a resource is used or has been used. This could be a rating or peer review. Metadata and paradata are often referred to as tags. For learning resources to be discovered, they must be tagged.
  • OER Commons provides members the ability to contribute open education resources. The resources contributed via OER Commons become available to other websites and online applications that consume or integrate the Learning Registry.

    1. 1. Learning Registry OverviewAugust 2, 2012
    2. 2. Extending the Benefits of Technologies Developed for Academic Education to Career and Technical Education and Workforce DevelopmentThe following information is intended to provide background information on thecurrent technologies that are in development to support academic education, in particular implementation of the Common Core State Standards, and thepotential for expansion to career and technical education (CTE) and workforce development areas. The examples provided related to CTE and workforce development were developed solely for this presentation and are not endorsed by any state or national organizations.
    3. 3. The Learning RegistryThe Learning Registry is an online platform that allows the educationalcommunity to publish and consume resources.It is a new approach to capturing, sharing, and analyzing resource data tobroaden the usefulness of digital content to benefit educators and students. Capture Share AnalyzeIt is designed to facilitate data exchange behind the scenes for an opencommunity of resource creators, educators, and consumers to collaborateand share useful resources, as well as information about how thoseresources are used. Subject Matter Users ExpertsEducators Community IndustryLearning Registry http://www.learningregistry.org
    4. 4. The Value Add of the Learning RegistryPopular search engines are not necessarily the best resource to use to findOpen Educational Resources (OER) since: • Search results do not necessarily include reviews, usage information, and tagging to standards. • Many resources are not posted by trusted sources. What is the Learning Registry added value? The learning registry is designed to be an open, collaborative effort by resource creators, publishers, and educators, resulting in a higher percentage of quality resources for educators and students.
    5. 5. Using the Learning Registry Key Benefits How it WorksExpanded access to The Learning Registry provides an easy-to-adopt and easy-totrustworthy descriptive operate mechanism for disseminating and consuming resourcedata on educational information.resources.Pooling contextualized The Learning Registry enables sharing and aggregating resourceknowledge about usage data across disparate systems and platforms.learning resources. • Although the registry is designed to support the exchange of any kind of social metadata or paradata the development community is currently focused on exchanges of standards alignment data.Providing tools and • One valuable service just released is sharing data aboutservices to make use of standards that match across states."big data" about • Services are being developed for:resources. • Establishing identity between systems such as LinkedIn. • Enabling node operators to automatically categorize incoming data based on the level of trust in the publisher. • Publishers can use a common framework for publishing assertions about their resources, including updates, same- as, replaces, deletion, etc. Services are being developed to make these changes transparent to users.
    6. 6. Benefits to CTE and Workforce Development Contributing to and using the Learning Registry can benefit secondary and postsecondary career and technical education (CTE) and workforce development programs. However, to fully realize the benefits, employability and technical learning standards need to be open and interoperable to allow for consistent tagging, and open education resources need to be identified and aligned to these standards.3. Illinois Pathways http://www.illinoisworknet.com/ilpathways
    7. 7. Using LR with Illinois Pathways1. Setup an Learning Registry Node on the Illinois Shared Learning Environment. • A node is already setup on an SIU CWD server.2. Provide a searching interface on Illinois Pathways.3. Create tools for tagging and publishing resources, aligning standards, commenting, sharing, foldering, and more.
    8. 8. Examples – SearchingScenario 1 – Open search for Career Cluster resources available to anyonefrom the Illinois Pathways website.Scenario 2 – Building off the Shared Learning Collaborative (SLC)searching tool, include Career Cluster resources searching within passwordprotected interface for education and workforce programs.
    9. 9. Examples – Searching
    10. 10. Examples – Show Usage and Related InformationFor each resource provide:• Abstract • Ratings• Comments • Resource Type• Conditions of Use • Source• Evaluation Information • Learning Standards• Grade Levels • Subjects• Languages • Tags• Link to Resource • Usage Information
    11. 11. Examples – Search ResultsUses narrowing to and optional keywords to refine results.
    12. 12. Examples - Results Detail
    13. 13. Examples – Conditions of Use Each resource has one of four conditions of use labels. No Strings Attached No restrictions on your remixing, redistributing, or making derivative works. Give credit to the author, as required. Remix and Share Your remixing, redistributing, or making derivatives works comes with some restrictions, including how it is shared. Share Only Your redistributing comes with some restrictions. Do not remix or make derivative works. Read the Fine Print Everything else.OER Commons http://www.oercommons.org/Creative Commons http://creativecommons.org
    14. 14. Examples - Tagging Provide an interface for users to tag resources to Career Cluster subjects. The interface controls the metadata collected and stored, and corresponds to the search narrowing options. Tagging is the act of creating and publishing a resource description for resources. The resource description is created by identifying associated metadata or paradata. This data, which is searchable by keywords, identifies standards and related resources. For learning resources to be discovered, they must be tagged.This data includes, but is not limited to: Title Description Use Rights End-User Role Time Standard Resource Type Grade Level
    15. 15. Tagging Location Date Author Learning Standard Metadata takes the form of tags, markers, or fields that help Descriptive identify all manner of descriptive, administrative, and technical information about a given object.Administrative A metadata record consists of a standardized set of Technical properties, or tags, that provide a necessary structure for describing a resource or collection of resources.
    16. 16. Paradata Paradata is a specialized type of metadata which describes how a resource is or has been used. Paradata helps communicate when you want to talk about how people have used a book or other resource. Paradata includes statements about a resource consisting of three parts: an actor, a verb, and an object.Paradata Actor Verb Object Actor – refers to the person or group who does something with the resource. Verb – describes the action of actor. Object – refers to the resource being acted upon. The important part of an object is the URL where you can find out about the object.
    17. 17. OER CommonsThese screenshots show howOER Commonsprovides users away to tagresources.OER Commons http://www.oercommons.org/
    18. 18. Examples – Aligning to StandardsProvide an interface for aligning Career Cluster resources toacademic, employability, and technical learning standards. Aligning toStates’ Academic and Common Core Standards is already beingaddressed.The standards for Career Clusters need to be setup online andinteroperable with Learning Registry.
    19. 19. Examples – Other ToolsProvide additional tools and support integration such as:• Aligning to multiple standards• Building SLC learning maps• Rating and commenting on resources• Recording usage information• Saving to folders or in a library• Sharing with social media• Using an evaluation rubric• Creating course builder tools
    20. 20. Next Steps1. Complete initial mapping rules of Learning Registry content to Illinois Pathways cluster.2. Setup an Learning Registry Node on the Illinois Shared Learning Environment.3. Provide a keyword, narrowing and advanced searching interface on Illinois Pathways.4. Create tools for tagging and publishing resources, aligning standards, commenting, sharing, foddering, and more.5. Work with partners to engage educators to get feedback and to tag and publish resources, and align to standards.6. Determine SLC integration.
