The SURFnet Open Education API, aka Open Onderwijs API, is an open standard for sharing education data. Its production has been spearheaded by SURFnet in collaboration with institutions of higher learning. The API facilitates the sharing of wide ranging academic information including courses, student marks, course credits, and semester schedules. Developers in turn use the data to build new applications.
SURF is the collaborative organization for ICT in Dutch education and research.
Twenty-two APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Genetics, Education, Passwords, Identity, Video, and Music. One highlight today is the IEX Trading API for creating stock trading applications. Here's a rundown of the latest additions for developers.
