Steve Midgley, Deputy Director of The Office of Education Technology at the US Department of Education, leads the Learning Registry project.  In his blog post, Steve describes the scope of the project:
"The Learning Registry is a project among a (growing!) number of federal organizations including Department of Education, Department of Defense, National Science Foundation, the Office of Science and Technology Policy at the White House and the Federal Communications Commission. We’ve been consulting with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) at the Department of Commerce, the National Archives and Records Administration, the team, as well as both the Federal CIO and CTO. We’ve had preliminary conversations with NASA, the Smithsonian and the Department of Energy. We plan to engage with many other agencies and organizations in this work, both inside and outside of the federal government. In the initial phase, this project relates only to the learning resources managed by the federal government (and by learning resource, we’re currently taking a broad view to include primary source, historical and culturally significant materials, as well resources designed specifically for educational use)."
