First look at the Jorum API

1 May 2014  |  0 COMMENTS  |  Learning Maps

Thanks to Paul Madley and Anja Le Blanc for their Jorum API workshop at the OER14 conference. Its great to see the Jorum API in action!

The Jorum API now gives you access to a growing repository of over 16,000 Open Educational Resources (OERs) to dynamically integrate these into your Website. An experienced developer can get up and running very quickly with the REST based API, which gives the option to return results in either XML or JSON. It is straight forward to send a query to search for resources and the API returns a list of matching resources. Based on these results you can get detailed information about each specific resource or access the files themselves.

So far the focus of the API is to interrogate Jorum but Paul and Anja have future plans to provide the ability to deposit resources via a widget and/or API. For those using JQuery there is also javascript code to accesses the API, which is Bootstrap friendly (layouts that work well across a range of platforms).

Further Jorum API workshops are planned so keep your eyes pealed on the Jorum Blog. I would recommend the workshop.

We are hoping the API will be useful in the AHRC-funded Co-Curate project that we are involved in.
