Now that the project completed and the reports published, this blog is closing down.

During the blogs life we made fifteen posts making various announcements about the progress of the report. We created 29 Pages in all which were used to collect comments on particular areas. These comments were in addition to the original survey that was carried out using Survey Monkey on which we had 234 responses.

The blog will remain visible for the indefinite future but will be frozen in terms of adding new content and viewers will not be able to add any further comments.

Thank You from the Good APIs Project

The final version of the reports have now been submitted. They will be posted up on the blog sometime soon.

Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed to the reports and commented on the best practice section. They may not hold all the answers but hopefully are a starter for 10.

Happy APIing!

Cloud Computing and Collaboration

As a follow on from the Future of Technology in Education (FOTE) conference, ULCC want to get a better understanding of the communities feeling towards both cloud computing and collaboration. With this in mind, they have put together a short survey.

The survey sits nicely alongside the Good APIs survey (now closed). Thanks to the 240 people who filled it in! That’s a lot of data to work with!

Welcome to the Good APIs Project blog

The ‘Good APIs’ project aims to provide JISC and the sector with information and advice on the factors that encourage use of machine interfaces, based on existing practice.

The blog will provide a central link to resources created during the project, information about the project and final deliverables.

It will also allow those interested in issues relating to the use of APIs in HE  to comment on discussion areas and findings.

If you have a question, suggestion or comment about the project please get in touch.
