Eric regards the Learning Registry – an informal collaboration among several federal agencies designed to make federal learning resources and primary source materials easier to find, access and integrate into educational environments — as is an important building block for presenting learning content at the right time and in the right context for individual learners.

The post includes a couple of YouTube videos that demonstrate the practicality of mashups. Check this out on Eric Shepherd’s blog.
