API Works! Getting Started with the Schoology API (Workshop, 75 min)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This will be a hands-on workshop to make the API work for you, instead of the other way around! It will begin with an overview of APIs in general, then the Schoology API and documentation. A real-world example of the API in action will show how instructors register accounts, request or create groups/courses, and and even provision enrollments from SIS data - all through a self-service portal powered by the API. This is an interactive session and you will be asked to roll-up your sleeves and code, using sample scripts provided. Participants will return home with working code and a path to implementing custom solutions with the Schoology API.

Session Objectives:
Participants will:
- Review Schoology API documentation and understand the benefits of using APIs.
- Observe a real-world example of an eLearning portal leveraging the Schoology API.
- Develop solutions using creative problem solving to empower users and build operational efficiencies using the Schoology API.
- Create and take-away a PHP web service that connects to the Schoology API for use in their own school environment.
- Learn what questions to ask themselves and their stakeholders to ensure the designed solution is aligned to their needs.
