Curation and Structured Data for Educational Resources (Creative Commons)

Nathan Yergler, Chief Technical Officer for Creative Commons, reflects on the suggestions gathered so far on the Learning Registry IdeaScale site and how those suggestions reflect the work Creative Commons is doing to make finding Open Educational Resources (OER) easier through CC's DiscoverEd project.

Nathan writes:

"...this makes me think that the idea of curating and collating resources is going to be an important part of how people find information in the future (whether they’re explicitly curating, or implicitly by posting a link to Twitter, it’s all about filtering information to the set you’re interested in). It’s always nice to hear that you’re on the right track with a project; seeing the ideas suggested for Learning Registry reinforces my belief that we’re looking at the right areas for improving the OER search experience."
