This is the second post of a three part series covering recent trends and developments in Education Technology. This post features information about Learning Management Systems (LMS), Learning Content Management Systems (LCMS), and Education Marketplaces.
At the time of this writing, there are 197 APIs listed in the Education Category of the ProgrammableWeb API Directory. A few of the leading APIs in this category include Khan Academy, Edmodo and Schoology.
Back in September 2012, ProgrammableWeb reported that Schoology had launched the Schoology App Center which features third-party applications built with the Schoology API and developer platform. To further encourage the use of the Schoology platform and “promote the open exchange of data” by education technology developers, Schoology has announced the release of the SIS Integration Platform, a turnkey solution that allows the integration of the Schoology platform with Student Information Systems (SIS) that provide a web API.
Schoology, a collaborative learning platform that is 100% cloud-based, has recently announced the launch of the Schoology App Center which features third-party applications built with the Schoology API and developer platform. Using the Schoology API, developers can build applications that extend features and functionality as well as build applications that run directly in the Schoology platform.
This week we had 63 new APIs added to our API directory including a cloud storage service, TEDTalks video library, energy efficiency certification processing service, Microsoft services connection platform and a travel review and recommendation service. We also covered an API that can help you move. Below are more details on each of these new APIs.
