Hello all.
As you may know some of us in the UK have been following the work of the
Learning Registry with some interest. The most active manifestation of
this interest has been the JLeRN Experiment, an experimental node set up
to help us better understand the potential of the Learning Registry in a
UK Higher Education context. The funding for JLeRN has come to and end,
and so we have been drawing together some of the experiences and
lessons, which I hope will be of some wider interest.

We had a meeting of the people interested in the JLeRN experiment a few
weeks ago. Various people summarized their involvement with JLeRN for
that meeting, and some summarized the meeting itself. Sarah Currier
(JLeRN project manager) and I posted a summary of these summaries on the
JLeRN blog:

A report into the wider potential of the Learning Registry was
commissioned, this also is on the JLeRN blog

Case studies were commissioned from various people who had used or have
ideas for using the experimental node. These also will be posted to the
JLeRN blog. For reasons of pure personal bias I would like to highlight
the case study from the EngRich project (in which I have a small
advisory role) who have set up their own node at the University of
Liverpool(*), see

(* By the way, would it be possible to add this to the community map at ? Also the JISC node shown at
Bristol should be in Manchester, it is hosted by Mimas who are based there.)

Best regards, Phil Barker

Thanks Phil. I adpated the text of your message and posted it as a news article on the LR site. I also added the text to the community entry for JISC along with what was already there.

I couldn't figure out how to move the map marker - if anyone knows how to move a map marker in google sites, I'm happy to do it.. CC'ing Ashley who set it up and might be able to tell us..

Thanks very much for the extensive write ups. The balance of opportunities and critical feedback is very helpful for sure.
