Development and Integration of E-learning Services Using REST APIs
Keywords:E-learning, Web Services, Service Oriented Architecture, REST APIs
E-Learning systems have gained a lot of traction amongst students and academicians due to their flexible nature in terms of location independence, time, effort, cost and other resources. The rapidly changing nature of the education domain makes the design, development, testing, and maintenance of E-Learning systems complex and expensive. In order to adapt to the changing policies of educational institutes as well as improve the performance of students, the paper presents a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) approach to minimize the cost and time associated with the development of E-Learning systems. The paper illustrates the development of independent E-Learning web services and how they can be combined to implement the required policies of respective education institutes. The paper also presents a sample policy implemented using developed web services to achieve the required objectives.
