Do you have a collection of digital content you would like to share with the Learning Registry? Joining the Learning Registry will help your content reach its intended audience.
Today publishers are engaging with the Learning Registry in one of three ways: Actively “contributing” publishers have explicitly partnered with the Learning Registry to provide us with data envelopes and other details about their collection using the steps below.

A third group of publishers is passively sharing resources simply by making their data public in a compatible format.
Become an active contributor using the tools below.

EasyPublish is a way to publish your resources either through a user-friendly form or through a CSV file (export from Microsoft Excel)
Take a look at the latest documentation on the EasyPublish tool, including links to the tool on the live and sandbox nodes.
