Mashups using the same API (1)
100 competitors of the first HACKtivate ED hackathon – held June 14 – 16 in San Francisco, California – made use of education and location APIs and datasets in a race to solve 9 realworld education challenges. APIs used by competitors included the Edmodo API, and several location-based APIs.
Fourteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories such as Games, Banking, Education, Customer Relationship Management, and Home Automation. Featured today is the API for the wildly popular augmented reality game Pokemon Go. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
The US Department of Education has issued a Request for Information (RFI) regarding the use of APIs in higher education data, student aid programs and processes. The goal of the RFI is to gather ideas that will increase the openness of higher education data, processes, and aid to students and families. The RFI is directed towards all interested parties, and submissions will be accepted through June 2, 2014.
